    Alternative to the Puppet Pin Tool in a 3D program?

    lonnrot Level 1

      I'm looking for the alternative inside Maya, 3Ds Max or Cinema 4D for the Puppet Pin Tool in After Effects.


      The idea is to record simple mouse gestures on 2D cutout characters. In After Effects you simply have to place dots in important areas such as the head or hands and a mesh is generated automatically, with three dots you can move head and arms and start recording right away.


      This is intended for comedy so the motion can be rough and quirky.


      Here's a video I did with the Puppet Pin Tool. Is there an alternative for this in a 3D Package?
