Mesh warp moves pixel layer

Recommended Posts

I've noticed this on AP 1.5, and now I find it's present on 1.6 too. I'm using mesh warp to form mouth shapes for lip synching an animation. (I'll share it with you all on New Year's Eve :)) I have two layers, one for the top lip and one for the bottom. When I click to set a node, the active layer moves very slightly down and right. When the warp is applied the layer moves back to the correct position, so it's not a problem as far as the finished image is concerned, but it does make it difficult to know precisely where I'm warping to. It only seems to be a small number of pixels, and for this application such tiny errors as might arise are negligible; but it would be a problem in other cases.

 

Here's a screen shot with three layers (the hand is on top):

This is the active layer (top lip):

And the three layers before warping:

And this animated gif shows the layer 'jumping' when a node is created:

And in case you're wondering, it's one of Raphael's putti ...

I'm running Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop with 8GB of RAM.
