Hi, I have a PSD puppet that I am trying to figure out how to convert to a vector based puppet so I can utilize the "Wiggle" behavior and I am struggling. Does anybody know the steps you need to convert the psd to a vector .AI puppet?

I was able to import the psd into AI and save it as a .AI file, then when going into Character Animator initially the puppet seems to work but when i click "render as vector" the puppet dissapears completely.

There are fundamental differences between bitmap (Photoshop) and vector based files (Illustrator). You're going to need to trace the outlines of the Photoshop content. Please go to the Illustrator forums for more details.
