have you gone through the step by step tutorials in the Duik site? https://rainboxprod.coop/en/category/tutorials/after-effects-en/ this is not an intuitive tool AT ALL. the tutorials start with the most basic of things for a reason. make one layer with a controller and create a "look at" IK rig, then 2 layers, then 3... step by step.
in your setup some layers are maybe hidden, so check the master shy switch and see if they are even there.
also bare in mind this is not a duik forum, not sure how much help you can get here with specific workflow advice. you can also check out the duik forum Duik - [After Effects] - Rigging et Animation - Rainbox Forum
Roei - thanks! I'm doing the new lynda tutorial - and since I'm working with stick figures I'm sticking to chapter 5 (Duik & Pins) which is pretty good. Duik is NOT INTUITIVE - but I'm giving it a try before going to the simpler (?) puppet tools 3.
In fact I'm doing this super simple spine, left/right leg rig because I find that doing a more complicated full - even just a stick figure-rig is too hard at first. But I am darned near close to throwing in the towel. Sheez - I may even settle on importing AI sequences as my stuff is so simple. I will take a look at the Duik site tutorials before I quit! Thanks.
And the shy button reveals nothing. Everything just disappeared. I've got the AE Blues! Ha!
And the shy button reveals nothing.
the shy is supposed to hide your artwork from the timeline, but if you clicked the master switch and revealed all your shy layers and you still only see you nulls this means your artwork was deleted from the timeline.
I will check that Lynda out. start step by step with a simple rig first. see that you get it right before going to a full character.
