Can You Add Free Transform to Puppet Warp? It would Greatly Increase Workflow in an Ad Based Environment.

I suppose a work-around might be to apply the Puppet Warp (to a Smart Object), convert to a Smart Object and Transform that.

I wasn't looking for a Work Around.

I was trying to entertain the thought that if Scale-ability and Transform were Added to the Puppet Warp Environment, it would be a far more effective Tool.

Allowing the Individual Scale-ability of Any Object on a Single Layer to be Individually Scaled within the Puppet Warp Interface.

The Other Item that should be Address, is the Use of the Zoom Tool while Using Puppet Warp - Should be Enabled so that Critical Changes can be reviewed form different perspectives during the Transformation or Image Manipulation Process.

Thank You!

What are you talking about exactly?
I can zoom while using Puppet Warp just fine with the common command-space method or via keyboard shortcuts.

I did discover that Scaling of Objects is indeed Possible Inside of Puppet Warp, but the Results I find are less than Pleasing, as serious degradation of the Object is quite apparent.

You can Scale your Chosen Object by Maintaining Only 2 Control Points and Setting Puppet Warp to Distort in the Menu Bar Drop Down Menu which is Usually marked "Normal".

Similarly, You Can execute Object Rotation in Puppet Warp by utilizing Two Control Points by Selecting One, and then Grabbing the Other Control Point and Rotating it around the Access of the First Control Point.

One Other Anomaly to Report while using Puppet Warp is that if There are More than One Object on a Single Layer? ...Puppet Warp may or May Not See the Object as a Single Object.

Meaning, Especially in the Case of Text, that when Manipulated, Puppet Warp may Disappear Portions of Your Image or Create Secondary Copies of Portions of Your Object Image. So? ...It's Good to be Aware of that because if You Apply the Puppet Warp Transformation? All overlapping Images will Become One Composited Object.

Take Care,
