  1. Unable to open project

    Hello, I worked on a project on Character Animator.

    I wanted to secure my working hours using google drive.

    Everything was going very well during his last weeks. But in the morning I open Character Animator and I get a message: "Cannot open project << F: //ANIMA/.../Ch Data / repo.noindex / >> If it is on a server, copy it to a local disk and open it from from this location. " I have weeks of work on this project. Please do you have a solution for me? I beg you!

  2. Frame rate very low even on a powerful 2019 Mac Pro system with fast SSD and GPU

    Great app, but as soon as I record the frame rate drops, resulting in a pretty jerky animation, which is particularly noticeable on draggers. I'm using a 12 core 2019 Mac Pro with an SSD Raid, 96GB RAM and a W5700X GPU, so it's unlikely to be the machine not being powerful enough, more likely it's not utilising it fully. Otherwise, maybe this could be solved with a feature that creates smooth tweening between the frames?

  3. Hold position of draggers when puppet is armed

    I find it very frustrating when wanting to add more detail to arm motions for example that I can't see the previous position I'd recorded without un arming the puppet.

    For example, if I want to create a simple wave motion and have set a basic position for the arm but then want to add some extra motion to it, I struggle to match the original position to then add the extra piece of motion.

    The only way I can see the original position is to unarm the puppet - hold the position in my mind, arm the puppet, and…

  6. ¡Puppet tags dissapear every time I open the project!

    I have to redo all the rigging every time I open a project because when I reopen the project I get an error, and then when I check the puppet all the tags are gone!

  7. MIDI Velocity Support

    I would love to see support for the velocity of a key press from a MIDI keyboard or pad. Often the nutcracker jaw and other lip sync does not follow the words very well, so having the ability to control the jaw with a key/button press on a MIDI keyboard would be great. If I tap lightly, the jaw opens a little, and if I tap hard, the jaw opens wide. Maybe this behavior could also be mapped to feet, so you could make a character dance just by tapping two different buttons.

  10. This applies to all of your software programs

    Why are you hiding Older versions of software ? It took me about 1 hr to get to Older version of software I needed and I had to finally contact your Live person support to get it ! This is NOT USER friendly and you shall make your Older versions accessible in a normal way with some visible link, and not having customers look for it like for a needle in the hey!

  13. using video as a source to animate a puppett

    I would like to use a prerecorded video instead of a live web camera, so face tracking and audio (lipsync) comes from there.
    Instead of applying some sort of filter to the video.

  15. ZOrder Behavior - Reordering Layers at Recording Time

    Hi Guys!

    I think a feature "ZOrder Behavior" would improve Character Animator a lot!

    For example, consider a character sitting behind a table - where both are separated puppets. As expected, puppet character should be BEHIND the table puppet - but the arms should be OVER the table. Today, it's a big problem when you are dealing with different puppets.

    A Zorder feature would solve this problem at recording time. By adding this new behavior to the arm and changing a simple index value, the arm layer can OVERLAP another puppets. So, the character arms would appear OVER the table…

  18. Audio drops on Timeline Playhead.

    Instead of audio dropping to the beginning of the track (when dragging in), it should show up on the Timeline Playhead mark!

    It's mega annoying to have to go back to 00:00 and move the audio to your mark!
