    Good plug-ins or methods for moving mesh warps

    red-mike Level 1

      AE doesn't let you move or track a mesh warp onto an item inside of a shot easily. It won't even work on an adjustment layer (OR maybe I'm doing something wrong?). The best workaround I've seen is this:

      But it is a lot of steps and it really is a work around and not a straight forward solution that can be relied upon 100% of the time.

       

      I was hoping for more instant gratification with perhaps a plug-in like this:

      The problem is that one costs $600. Anyone heard of one that does the same for less, or FREE?

       

      I'm also open to new methods, but please don't recommend something you haven't already tested yourself.

       

      Thanks!
