First, cut out the person from the photo in Photoshop.
Yes, I have done that. The resulting picture acts the same way. The whole picture rotates around the anchor point. I'm still learning this new CS3 (obviously) and want to animate a picture of an eyeglass frame but AE seems to treat photos differently from a drawing. in their teaching movie, they only use a drawn puppet.
How many puppet points are you using? I've only had a problem when using too few..
Gary, you need to use at least 3 pins to get distortion. The Puppet tool is based on an "as rigid as possible" algorithm, meaning that anything below 3 pins will only result in creating one rigid axis and all other polygons inherit its motion.
