I have separated Illustrator images for a character, I applied the puppet pins to one of the layers and tried to rotate it. The puppet pins stay stationary, they don't move with the layer. THis is frustrating, because all the instructional videos I've seen says to "just rotate and move the mesh" but that doesn't work. Even when moving the pins, the image gets cut off and warped what is only inside the mesh.
You have enabled continuous rasterization. Turn it off.
OMG! I can't believe it was that easy. Thank you!
