Puppet pin and grouped layers

Post by Sarapintas » Tue May 19, 2020 4:05 pm

I´m trying to animate a character using DUIK. As i'm new to AE and DUIK i´m watching a Jake Bartlett course advised by RainBox and following every step. When i reached the step where i´m supposed to use the puppet pin tool i was able to pin the arms and the legs but if i select the torso, which is a layer group (as in Jake's exemple) AE doesn't allow me to pin.

It seems your torso has been imported from Photoshop: you have to uncheck the "continuous rasterization" option.
