    Puppet Tool layers lose animation when I adjust the mesh expansion?

    Zogeta Level 1

      Hi everyone. I'm running After Effects CC 2015 (Version 13.5.0.347) on a Mac running OS X Yosemite. 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM. Since updating to CC 2015 I've been running into a problem with the Puppet tool. I'll make my puppet points and animate my layers as I normally would. When I review the Comp I'll sometimes see some pixels that didn't animate with the rest of the layer, so I'll expand the mesh mask to include them. But then my animated layer turns back into a static image. Despite all the keyframes still being there it's just a picture again. The only way to fix it is to remove the puppet tool and start from scratch, which is very time consuming. Has anyone encountered this problem and have a solution to it? Previous versions of After Effects used to simply update the mesh size without a problem.
