So glad to hear it, John! It's funny; I was just facing this exact problem AGAIN a couple days ago, having completely forgotten that I'd found a way around it before, so in effect you've turned around

Hey all, I've got a simple 3-keyframe animation on the Point of Interest property of a camera in my scene, with the Interpolation method set to Auto Bezier. However, the animation is sharp and jerky.

i think you'd need to go the other way... effecting color prior to the puppet tool. you could have 4 precomps, one each for the shirt, pants, shoes, hands. those are then used by the puppet tool comp

Actually, unfortunately I never did get to the bottom of the problem. For my immediate needs I just made the whole rig editable (which removed all the IGSplines). This prevented me from animating the

you should be able to rotate the texture tag even as a UVW (but it won't show until you render) the only other possibility I could think of was to use a helix so you could offset the extrude without i

You're on the right track with the time remapping expression. I'd guess you might only need two angle controls -- one for latitude (0-180) and one for longitude (0-360). The exact expression depends o

toComp() takes a second parameter (time), so something like this should work: thisComp.layer("carPosition").toComp( 0,0,0 ,time - 0.1 * index); Dan
