zeroing out position coordinates for puppet pins
on Sep 27, 2018 at 2:05:29 pm

Hey there. I was wondering if there is a way to zero out position coordinates for puppet pins? Probably right under my nose but haven't seem to get it to work if it is possible? Thanks.

The "Reset" button on the puppet effect.

Thanks, Kalleheikki Kannisto. When I do that, I lose the puppet pins. I am looking for a way to zero out the coordinates without losing the puppet pins.

When I do that on a keyframed puppet pin layer I get a new keyframe with the puppet pins in their original position, so it sounds like you're pressing a different reset button than I. Also, are you in AE CC2018?

Hi Kalleheikki Kannisto,

I am working in CC 2018. Probably something obvious I am missing. I have attached a screenshot to help explain what I am trying to do.

So you're NOT trying to reset the puppet pins to their original position, but reset the values without moving the (already moved) pins? That doesn't sound very doable. Perhaps parenting them to nulls might do so, but I kinda doubt it. At least you will need additional expression code to get them back in the right place, I believe.
