Re: Character rig changes position seemingly randomly

This looks a lot like cache issues which happens sometimes in After Effects. Try to purge all caches and see if it's better. If not, it may also be some kind of "circular dependency": for example an expression in property "A" which references a property "B" which itself needs the value of property "...

Re: Layers Disappearing and Rig won't precomp.

Hi, I'm not at the studio these days so I can't open your project yet (next week I can if you're a bit patient) But I remember I had this kind of issues once, I believe it was some bug from Ae, which may be fixed in more recent versions. What version of After Effects are you using? Maybe you can try...

Re: Does Duik 15 work on CC 2019?

You have to remove your presetEffects file, update CC2019 to the latest patch, and install Duik again.
IT is fixed only in the very latest version/patch (from april) only, Ae 16.1.1

Re: Does Duik 15 work on CC 2019?

In the latest version of After Effects, the presetEffects.xml file does already exists, and you would have to edit it instead of just pasting a new one in.

The issue is with this specific file, it contains some effects needed for some tools only, so it makes sense that only some of them may not work.

Re: Does Duik 15 work on CC 2019?

This was fixed in the latest update of CC2019. Keep your software updated is the best advice I can give. Including Duik, we're not going to support it. It may or may not work in the future, you're warned ;)

Re: Rigging a character facing right?

The Structures have no predefined "side". The hominoid is created like this just as a reference, but you can move each element the way you need. If the walk cycle goes backwards, you'll just have to change the walking speed to something negative in its parameters. This should be automatic, but it se...

Re: Parent accross comp not working

Parent accross comp does not support two levels of nesting, you should not even be able to select the parent comp in Duik. You'd have to add an intermediate null object in the comp "in between" the two others.

Are you following these instructions ?

Re: What to do when connectors no longer connect?

This seems to be an issue with the naming of your comps. If there's no error generated by the expressions, I'll bet you have several compositions sharing the same name, thus the expression may reference the wrong one... To fix these, just rename any comp that might have the same name than one of tho...
