  1. After Update 22.5 Rigged Draggers Not Working

    I updated Character Animator from 22.4 to 22.5 this morning and suddenly my dragger handles for wrists and heels have stopped working and only non-labeled general draggers seem to work. Meaning I have to have one handle labeled wrist and a separate handle designated draggable on the same area. The extra handles - and having to update previously working puppets - is getting very annoying.

  2. Able to move characters from Pro to Starter Mode to Animate Faster

    It would be great to be able to take the original characters we create in Pro mode using puppet maker back to Starter mode to be able to animate faster, and then be able to drop them back in the Pro mode timeline.

  3. Resolution Options for Photoshop (Raster) Puppets

    It would be really helpful if there was an option to import raster, photoshop-based puppets at a lower "draft" resolution (like you currently can with vector Illustrator-based puppets) so that recording and setting up scenes can move more swiftly and smoothly and you still have the option to res up before outputting your final render or if a scene needs a tighter than usual zoom. (I know that you can achieve this by having different versions of your puppets, but the downside of that is, often we edit puppets on the fly, and if you edit the lower-res puppet, you…

  6. The option to replace assets would be nice

    Coming from an AE standpoint, I am really used to the Replace Footage option and Character Rigging can be quite fastidious if your characters' got all (or a lot of) the phonemes.

    I tried to base my second character on my first one because I was expecting the option the Replace Footage to be there, layers are saved the same way, it's the exact resolution. That would have been saving a ton of work in pre-production.

    Saddly, it's not there... yet?
    Or maybe I am not looking at the good place?!

    Either way, that option should be implemented, I think…

  7. I cannot use mouse & touch input (eye gaze function) when using triggers

    I've got triggers to setup the emotions of my puppet, everything is working perfectly... except the fact that when I use a keyboard trigger to change its emotions, the mouse & touch input (eye gaze function) seems to stop working.

    Is there a workaround?

  8. Notification of What Other Triggers Are Assigned to that Key

    It would be really helpful if you could easily see if you've already assigned a trigger to a certain key (while still having the option of having multiple triggers on a specific key) so that way, on more complex puppets, you don't risk having two unrelated triggers happening at once. Something like how in InDesign, when you create your own shortcuts for Character/Paragraph Styles, there's a notification if you've already used that shortcut.

    Thanks!

  10. actual real-time playback? What a concept!

    Is this still a bug or am I crazy?!?

    You can't scrub through the timeline or even move and stop to a place in the timeline and see EXACTLY what is happening. You have to hit PLAY so that the app "wakes up" and updates/renders what you are supposed to see at that moment. Am I crazy? Why isn't everyone up in arms about this? It's absolutely unacceptable and unfathomable that this would even be happening. Yet, it's not a surprise at all since this is Adobe we're talking about and they are famous for such lazy oversights. I've addressed…

  11. サイクルレイヤーでアニメーションさせた動きをパーティクルで反映させたい

    現状パーティクルで出現するのは静止画だけです。サイクルレイヤーやモーションラインなどで動きをつけたレイヤーがその動きを保ったままパーティクルで出現すれば表現の幅が広がると思いました。ご検討よろしくお願いいたします。

  13. Add a (TTS) text to speech program with animated voices that have emotions and personality

    Add a (TTS) text to speech program with animated voices that have emotions and personalities. There are two that are viable and the ones that are cost a fortune and they still sound like the voice of someone on lithium. We need this more than ever.

  14. タイムラインにレイヤーのフォルダ機能を追加してほしい。

    複数キャラの収録の際レイヤーが多くなりすぎてしまうためタイムラインが見にくいのと、仕上げのためにバラ音声ファイルを書き出す際にも一つ一つ表示非表示を切り替えなくてはならないため不便だと感じます。

    そのため、フォルダ機能かAeのプリコンポーズのような機能があるとありがたいです。

    ご検討のほどよろしくお願いいたします。

  15. Using dragger on my body but my head stays in place

    Well, it's not an idea per say, but I've been having trouble for the last.. 4-5 hours and I cannot find anything anywhere to debug myself.

    I've rigged my puppet at 99%, but when I use one of the Draggers installed on its body, the head/neck doesn't follow, and I wonder if there's a way to get the to attach at the base of the neck.

    The neck is inside Head (which is not independant) and Body is also not independant.

    Thank you in advance!

  16. Adding my backgrounds to Starter Mode too

    It would be great if I could add my own custom background to starter mode. I have a classroom and lab backdrop I like to use for my students, and want to keep using them even when I do a quick animation using starter mode (which is perfect for a quick turnaround video the night before I need it!)

  19. Tool to scale and rotate layers pivoting from the main handle while rigging

    Currently, setting the scaling and rotation value to a layer results in scaling and rotaing the layer arbitrary from the center of the layer. Instead, I would like to see a rigging tool that can scale and rotate the layer by using its main handle (green and named with the name of the layer) as pivot.

  20. Adding tags for parallaxing hair, ears, beard and other facial features

    I would like to see additional tags for parallaxing facial feature located on the different part of the characters' face. Ones can be side hairs, bang, back hair, hat, ears, glasses, beard and so on.
