  1. Snapchat style 3d mask building and face augmenting

    Snapchat style 3d mask building and face augmenting. Soemthing that feels less paper cut. Maybe allow us to mix our real eyes in with cartoon features. I know this is a big ask, but character animator is a bit underwhelming when you see the possibilities in something like Snapchat face filters (lenses)

  2. 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!)

  5. puppet maker customization

    Currently, there aren't a ton of options in the puppet maker.

    1) Uploading custom items currently isn't an easy task. How about a drop-down for each section where you have the option of adding an illustrator file to that area on the puppet. For instance lets say I'm looking at the chibi section and I don't see a Sikh turban, but I want to add a turban. So I go in and make one in illustrator. It could be added into the animation but if I want to have it as an always there option, having the ability to just…

  6. Add keyframing support and editing for all animating items

    Add the ability to key, animate, or fine tune recorded performances. Make everything that moves, or triggers keyframable.

  8. Video file support and parentable push pins

    1. I would like to see the option to put video files like .mp4 into the timeline and preview them at the same time as doing capture or puppeting work in the timeline.

    2. I would like to be able to have a parenting functionality that could be linked to puppet handles via a possible tagging system to control and puppet/move multiple layers at one time in a specific spot on the art work.
      Example: Human puppet playing guitar, you want the arm/hand behind the guitar neck to move and you want triggerable fingers on a layer in front of the guitar…

  9. Please fix Dynamic Linking to Premiere Pro and After Effects

    Since I need to use many features in Premiere Pro and After Effects to finish a project with Ch, I am finding dynamic linking a good idea/concept to do professional work but it always ends up making things unworkable. Right now I have a project I spent 3 weeks on, and I can't even open it in Premiere Pro, all the Ch scenes are 'pending' and I have done everything recommended on the Internet but cannot open the project in either Premiere Pro or After Effects (all the apps are updated). If Adobe cannot fix dynamic linking then please consider…

  10. Blink and Physics need to be decoupled from frame rate

    Recording a stage with 60fps and 4k settings. Blink lasts exactly 1 Frame. This looks natural in 25fps but with 60, it is just flickering.
    Same with physics. Dangle is quite different if stage runs 24, 25, 30 or 60 FPS.

    Please at least, insert a multiplier in behaviours (blink 2x slower would result in a 30fps like behaviour when performed on a 60 fps stage).

    Cycle layers already has something like this.

    Idea: scaling physics to 5x or 6x would result in a slowmotion effect. Useful for a ghostly puppet for example. Or underwater

  11. Relinking (Audio) Files within Ch

    If you change a source clip's name or location, there is no way to rightclick > replace, which is a pain if you have a bigger project

  13. Cross-eyed pupils keyboard input

    Would be fun to have a keyboard input for crossed-eyes. Maybe if you held down Up+Down keys together, perhaps.

  14. Ability to make background transparent.

    Please update to allow the background to be made transparent so the animation can be layered on top of presentations or other projects. Camtasia has this function and I don't want to use Camtasia solely for this function. It would be great if this function could be added. Thank you

  17. Add More Characters and Props to Adobe Fuse

    Since I don't see a feedback area on the Adobe site for Adobe Fuse, I'm adding my Fuse feedback here. Characters created in Adobe Fuse could be a huge asset for my company, but unfortunately the library of characters is too limited to be of extensive use. I cast a HUGE vote for adding more characters, more clothing, and more props to Fuse. I would even pay extra for a Fuse+ type subscription.

  19. Support Adobe Fresco / Adobe Draw for CH artwork creation

    Adobe Draw on iPad and now Adobe Fresco support a flat list of layers - no nesting possible. It would be nice if I can use a flat list of layers and maybe use layer name to control nesting - e.g. “Head - Mouth - Ah” as the layer name instead of grouping.

    This would however require Alfresco etc to support LOTS of layers. I know Photoshop is coming to the iPad - maybe that is the better approach. I just want vector artwork, so I want Illustrator on the iPad I guess.

  20. Scene resize resolution

    I would be good to make it possible to resize the resolution of the scene and have all elements (puppets and backgrounds) resize to match.

    Currently if you change the resolution, you then have to resize each element individually, if you have a lot in a scene this can be time consuming.
