I have the lip snyc moths in a separate .AI file, (Screen shot 1)BUT when I copy and paste, I still lose the +Mouth.
I got the +Mouth into the Head layer. BUT when I try and copy the +Mouth Layer into the separate Head Poses, I lose the +Mouth Layer.
Any one have any ideas that might help?
Any way to increase the size of my screen shots?
I'm guessing you're following these directions from the Mouth section (11:49 in)?
Sounds like Illustrator selection / grouping issues. Illustrator's selection model can be confusing - but basically, every time you double click something, you're isolating just that particular group. If things are showing up at the wrong level or the wrong thing is getting copied/pasted, try going one level above/below. I'd recommend:
+ Selecting on the canvas, not layers on the right
+ Double-clicking to get in and out of isolated groups
+ If need be, select multiple mouths on the canvas and re-group them together as a new Mouth group.
In the above video, note exactly how I copy and paste Stannie's mouths and try the same - if you have head turns, you'll probably have to go down one additional level to place the mouth correctly.
Hope that helps.
