The independent arms created in my puppet are not attached to the body although I have the arm layer attached to auto, independent ticked on and hinge style.

Tried all kind options but it does not work. This is the 2nd time I have encountered this problem since the last release. Is this a bug or  ....

Hi Joop,

Are you able to attach an image of the rigging mode to help us see what is happening?

Alternatively, if you haven't tried already Select the arm layer > move the origin point to where the arm would connect to the shoulder.

Hope this helps.

As Tiffany said - screen shot of arm layer rigging would help a lot, plus screen shot of parent independent layer(s) arm is trying to attach to.

For arm layer, is the origin handle green indicating it’s attached to the parent? Or are you trying to attach to a sibling independent group by mistake? (Sometimes people go overboard with independent layers and don’t connect them all up. You have to have a parent layer with actual content to attach to.)

Here is a screenshot of arm attached in rigging mode. In my opinion in a correct way Arm attached.png

Here a screenshot in record mode and you can see arm is not attached to body

Looking forward to your answer and thanks for your kind help.

In the screenshot, have you tried moving the “left arm” anchor a bit more to the right, so it both overlaps the parent layer (making it go green like it is in the screenshot) and the arm itself (it looks like it the center of the anchor point is outside the blue rectangle).

Also try making the root puppet layer independent as well. The “Mark Rutte” layer.

Ok I think your suggestion to move into the blue rectangle is helping me out of the problem. Will see if it also helps with another puppet I created and having the same problem. Again thanks for your help.

Hi Joop

I was going to say the same thing as Alan.  Also, it's good to re-watch this, Getting Started in Adobe Character Animator CC - YouTube

Watch where Dave puts the handle in the first few seconds of this link.
