Is there software specialized in “puppet warp” animation?

Photoshop CS5 comes with a feature called Puppet Warp.

I find it specially useful for a certain animation I’m making. Normally, I duplicate the layer, use puppet warp, done. Then duplicate again, and so on…

This is a bit frustrating because I have to re-create the pins for every frame (and you can’t undo when you move a pin modifying the mesh, I think).

That’s a shame, because this tool is great for my project.

I wonder if there is any other software specialized in puppet warp animation? Or, is there a way to not have to re-create the pins for every frame in Photoshop CS5?


If you have After Effects, you can use the puppet tool to create your animation.

Here’s Adobe’s help page on it:

I have not used it much, but I followed this tutorial when I played around with it a while ago:
