CC 2018 Update - Advanced Puppet Pin Tool
Here's a quick update with after effects CC 2019 regarding the puppet pin tool. There are now some more advanced options for adding movement. So here I have this illustrator file of this lady doing yoga. So initially if you have your traditional puppet pin tool, you can see that I have a number of puppet pins added to this lady and so I can do things. I can move her arm around, move her wrist depending on where I add puppet pins, I can do all kinds of stuff and this is all key frame a ble But notice how if I do this, it's not really giving me all of the motion I would like with this static image. Now we have an advanced puppet pin tool. So if I go and hold down the puppet pin and go down to advanced pin tool, you can see that we have these green puppet pins and when I click on one you have more options. So you see this circle around it. This allows you to actually rotate around this puppet pin around this joint. So now I can more naturally naturally rotate this joint. Or same with the ...
wrist here, rotate the wrist a little bit and you also have this circle where if I expand it with this square by clicking the square, I can actually increase or decrease the scale around that pin. Now this isn't necessarily going to work for all of these things. But depending on how you're moving, moving and we can have her bending forward or something doing her downward dog or whatever it is that she's going to do next, and we can move these all around accordingly. So the advanced puppet pin tool, it just gives us a little bit more motion control uh and with the scale especially and the rotation, more precise detail in adding movement to our objects. Remember, you can key frame all of these. Just make sure you watch the other previous lessons on adding motion with the traditional puppet pin tool to learn how to do that. Thanks for watching.
