AE Puppet Tool Move Problem
on Sep 29, 2010 at 7:32:37 am

Does anyone know why the puppet tool would stop moving in both x,y directions and be confined to just moving on the y directions?

I've worked with the puppet tool and this same humanoid character for some time now. Just today about halfway through an animation the characters puppet points stopped being able to move in all directions and were confined to moving up and down along an unseen path.

I tried recreating the asset and it still comes to the same issue.

Could I have accidentally hit something to make the points be confined to a singular direction?

Any help is appreciated.

Just a shot in the dark: Are you using any starch pins? They would constrain the deformation.

Sadly no starch pins are being used.

I started work today and tried going back to a previously okay version of the comp and now that comp has been corrupted as well.

I'm going to see if I can get a screen capture of what I am working with so it will shed some more light on the situation that is hard to describe.
