Animate Asset Warp Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't

Imported a multi-layered PSD of a bug into Animate,

the head and body worked fine with the Assest Warp pin,

the legs do not work, for no apparent reason;

each PSD layer is on its own Animate layer,

checking with the tutorial, I converted the bitmaps to movieclip symbols.

 

When you hover over the item with the Asset Warp pin there is a little No Entry symbol.

 

Why would one layer work and not another?

Makes no sense.

maybe they're strokes and not shapes?

Thanks for you reply but that was no help. I haven't asked about shapes or strokes.

It's funny in a way that it is (I think) an insect that you are manipulating. Talking about a bug in Animate can have a couple of different meanings.

I don't know why the legs would be different. Are you able to show a small example file?

Thanks for the reply Colin.

A screenshot would show the head and body and legs on their own layers (Created as a PSD then imported into Animate ((it's still hard not calling it Flash)) ).

 

I'll assume this new Asset Warp tool must still be in development.

I can animate it with asset warp in Photoshop but the Tweening does make it move more smoothly. 

A bug is apt, yes.
