I'm trying to apply the Mesh Warp effect to a layer in AE CS5 on my Mac. I'm running AE CS5 v10.0.2.4 on Mac OS X 10.6.7. It looks like the version of the Mesh Warp effect is v2.0. When I apply the effect to the layer, I don't get any grid lines in the Composite view to let me distort the layer. I've tried moving the effect above and below the other effect applied to this same layer. That doesn't seem to matter.
Any idea what's going on?
Here's a screen shot:
You need to pre-compose the particle world layer then apply Mesh Warp to the pre-comp.
Thanks. That did the trick.
The weird thing is, I had tried that before and it didn't work. I walked away, slept, and when I came back and tried your suggestion again it worked.
LOL, I guess that shows sometimes you just have to walk away for a little bit.
At any rate, I appreciate your timely suggestion and response.
