HELP Puppet plug-in generated an unexpected exception

Oct 2, 2013 7:14 AM

A dialog box appeared saying 'puppet plug-in generated an unexpected exception' in the middle of using the puppet tool in After Effects CS6. I pressed ok, then another box appeared saying this is my last chance to save and advised me to save this file as a different name. I did so but when I went to open the file, the first dialog box appeared again and asked me to save the file again.


I read some where to remove the plug-in; I found all of the plug-ins for after effects, but puppet pin was not there. Would it be under a different name?


Is there a way I can fix this issue without having to redo my entire file?

    OS? Version of AE? (CS6 but latest build?) Memory? Size of comp?


    Puppet pin can easily run out of memory if you start fooling with the triangle spacing. That's probably it but I have no way to know for sure because I know nothing about your project that would help me solve your problem.

    Had the same problem. Enable caps lock while opening the file, worked for me!
