Greetings all - I have been diligently following this amazing tutorial https://youtu.be/MUtRnMMOTmo 

But in the Performance Recording and Editing part https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUtRnMMOTmo&t=3021s when it says to record the puppet with the arms at rest, I can't get it to work.

 

It doesn't actually seem to record until something on the character is manually moved.

 

Sure I'm missing something. Under deadline of course. Any and all help appreciated.

 

Thank you.

The first thing to check is if the appropriate Puppet Track Behaviors (below the camera) are "armed." If, for instance, you wish to record the face, click on the dot next to the behavior so that it is  bright red and recording.

Somewhere I'm sure I've got something tagged wrong because I don't think the arms are being recognized. Maybe these screens will help? Thank you very much for your assistance.

I'm not seeing anything unusual at first glance. Would it be possible to export and upload the puppet to something like Dropbox so we can get a closer look?

Yes. Is there something more private than this public board?
