i brought an image from PS into Illustrator and i want to put it in AE and use the puppet tool. however, when i bring it in it has a white background, but i just what the object i am going to puppet, so how do i do that?
AE does not require an image to be sent through Illy first. Just make sure your image has a transparent background and/or an alpha channel if need, then save as a psd file. In AE bring the psd file in as footage, unless you need a compostion and folder for the psd created in the project list. You should then be able to use the puppet tool on an image with a transparent background.
You will have o problem using the puppet tool on a psd file placed as footage. No need for AI in this case.
thank you, i just needed to save it as a psd
