18:50 Sharing Projects
21:19 Background Hair Layers
23:26 Swapping Mouth Sets
Correction: In the “Sharing Projects” section, doing “Save As” does not necessarily gather all your reference files. You should also do “File / Copy Media Files Into Project Folder” to ensure all your media is properly collected.
Special thanks to Bernard A. and Lynne Mitchell for letting me use their puppets as examples!
