In this case, if all 4 cycles are mutually exclusive, could you put all of their triggers in a single swap set to get what you want? (Triggering one trigger in a swap set unlatches any other trigger in the swap set, but will wait for the Cycle to finish first, if that option is chosen in Cycle Layers)

Sorry for the confusion. It should be in alphabetical order, so:
We’ll get the online help corrected.
Ian, do you not see this for step 2: "In After Effects, set up a composition that contains the different visemes at one-second intervals matching the alphabetical order of visemes in the Visemes context menu -- Aa, D, Ee, F, L, M, Oh, R, S, Uh, W-Oo. At time 0 seconds, it should be the Neutral mouth shape (that is, no viseme), at 1 second place the Aa viseme, at 2 seconds the D viseme, and so on."?
Sorry we haven't had time to implement this yet.
In the meantime, you can copy/paste the face tracking data from AE and paste into Ch. See the answer to this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/AfterEffects/comments/43uyfb/can_you_export_aes_face_track_data/
Another option is to use a tool like manycam.com that can pipe a video file into a virtual webcam.
Good idea. We do have a shortcut/workaround for this that works now: select a trigger in the Triggers panel (also makes the Triggers panel focused, which is required for this), then hit cmd/ctrl-1, -2, or -3. That trigger will then be added as a 1) 1-frame take, 2) 2-frame take, or 3) work-area-duration take. No need to turn off other parameters.
Nice idea! Workaround for now: cmd-click (mac) or control-click (win) on a red Arm-for-Record button to turn ALL of them off at once. Also works for turning all on at once.
We just reproduced this issue here at the factory. It's a bug, sorry about that! In the future it should just work, with no option -- the animation may look different because the mesh is different, but the location of the recorded dragger should stay the same relative to the puppet/group that Dragger is applied to, independent of Independence :)
