I was editing a puppet for Character Animator in Photoshop, the only thing that was changed is the color of the hand, now when I make the puppet point the hand disappears.  What did I do wrong?

Moving this post from the generic Get Started board to Character Animator where the concerned experts will see it.

Did you change the name of the hand or perhaps duplicate the hand, change the color, then delete the original?

 

If the hand is still in your Photoshop file then go back into Rig mode in Character animator and find the layer in your puppet's hierarchy. If the point is tied to a trigger, open the Triggers panel and click on the trigger you want. In the bottom half of the Triggers panel you'll see what layers are triggered, it might be empty. If it is then it seems like the layer name may have changed. Just drag the layer from the Puppet panel back on to the trigger and you should be good to go.
