Extract Controllers Not Working with Master Properties

Post by whatmakeart » Wed Mar 25, 2020 5:39 pm

I have a simple arm rig as a test. It has a single controller. I put this "Rig Comp" in another comp "Main Comp". Then inside "Main Comp" I highlight "Rig Comp" and click the extract controllers button with Master Properties selected. It seems to work but the controller does not move the rig. If I extract controllers using expressions, then the controller moves the rig.

I tested this multiple times with different rigs. Not sure what is going wrong. I attached a file with two simple arm rigs. One is extracted with expressions and one is extracted with Master Properties.

Not sure why it doesn't work.

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback, and for the files.

This is a known issue in Duik 16.2.8 we're tracking here: https://github.com/Rainbox-dev/DuAEF_Duik/issues/656
Should be fixed in 16.2.9 soon

Thanks for the reply.

Just to check, I uninstalled After Effects and then reinstalled. The Master Properties Extract Controllers worked after the reinstall for the simple arm rig. It might have been something with my setup. Nice that there is a fix in the pipeline.

A follow-up: I don't know what's wrong, I can't reproduce the issue here, extraction using master properties always work...
