    Prevent Character Animator from destroying my rig on file update

    FinnGlinkMovies

      Hey there.
      Im using Illustrator to create my puppets.
      Everytime I update the Illustrator-file (changed a color or sth like that),
      the whole rig gets resettet.

       

      I have to redo all the bones, specify mouths and eyes.
      How can I prevent that?

          Currently, CH has trouble reconciling a sync if it can't find the right layers. So changing a name or adding/removing something can sometimes mess stuff up. The number of cases where this happens gets smaller with each release - and the next one will be better about this, I've seen it in action - but unfortunately it still happens from time to time.

           

          The mouth and eyes should still remain auto-tagged though - if those aren't, that seems like a bug.

           

          For now, to be safe I would save any heavy rigging until you feel like you're done with the artwork.
