I assume it is a simple answer but am confused as to when I must use infinitive vs past participle…with past conditional
Tu aurais fait un bon professeur You would have made a good teacher
J'aurais pu être un grand artiste.
In your first sentence -
only has 1 verb 'faire' in the past conditional.
In your second sentence -
you have 2 verbs 'pouvoir' in the past conditional and être, being the second verb that takes the infinitive.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for that… yes I just missed that
