I've been having some issues with using Illustrator files with the puppet tool in After Effects CC 2015, I click on the layer with the pin tool and it adds the effect, but doesn't seem to want to add the pins or apply the mesh or anything. Seems to work with a solid I threw in the comp just to test to see if maybe had some "hide pins/mesh" setting on or something.
I went back to 2014 version of AE and it works fine, and even opening the file in 2015 the animation I did still works. Anybody else have this problem?
Hi there - same problem, had to pre-compose AI layers before puppet tool would work
There was a bug that was fixed with one of the updates to CC 2015. Run the update.
Same problem here with CC 2015.3 (v18.104.22.168). I already have to use a downgraded Illustrator to make it work on my Macbook pro, really don't want to have to do this with AE too.
I'm using pngs, precomposing didn't help.
