Hey hello!

So I'm using the Almasol puppet to experiment however ive run into an issue with the alternate mouths.

much like everyone else, the issue is that when i try to trigger the set only a static picture of the default

sad mouth appears, no lip sync. The other triggers work fine though there is no lip sync need for those.

I've gone through all of the tutorial videos I could find relation to this and read as much as i can - still

i cant seem to correct the issue.. its driving me nuts!!!! lol!

please please can someone tell me what the issue is here before i burst an eye ball...

Many thanks!!!

This has all been fine up to doing the alternate mouth sets - the mains ones (the standard pre-sets) work fine but when trying to set the "sad" sets to a trigger the lip sync would not initialise, either showing the default image or not showing anything at all. I found that If I deleted that mouth pack, copied and pasted a new instance of the standard pack and update those imagines to the sad set everything works.

hope this helps!!

Hello! Thank you for updating the issue. I'm in the same exact boat sadly TT TT. I may have to delete the mouth group and import a the happy set. I actually have the sad set as default lol. Which is like my character. I don't think it should matter though. 😞

I don't understand what you mean by "I found that If I deleted that mouth pack, copied and pasted a new instance of the standard pack and update those imagines to the sad set everything works." Can you elaborate on that? What exactly do I have to do?

Hello. I think my issue was that I was importing stuff from AE into PS and then building the character folders from there. I found if I copied over all the different layers into a CA puppet that was close to mine and replaced the layers and used the mouth groups in that file then everything worked and has been working. If I moved the mouth groups to a PS file that I made, I had problems.
