  1. Auto Pupil Micro-dart Movement

    If Auto Blink also had a setting for Auto Pupil Movements -- just small occasional "micro darts" -- this would allow the puppets to look more life-like during inactive moments during a performance or live stream.

  3. nested scenes: internal markers and/or working area visible

    I would like to see more of the internal structure of nested scenes in my timeline.

    What about adding a visible section which represents the working area inside the nested scenes?
    And/or make the markers visible on the bar in the timeline that is representing the nested scene.

  4. character animator 2020 automatically installs media encoder 2020 without asking permission to overwrite older versions of media encoder

    There are clients out there that need specific versions of Adobe programs in order to have a functional co-working experience.
    Not every company can afford a whole IT-section with caring for Adobe products the whole day long.

    To be able to keep working within a team everyone needs the same version of Adobe products.

    Now if one teammember decides to check out the new character animator and her/his older version of the all so important media encoder gets overwritten and it is not possible to install it again through the creative cloud manager, that is a real problem.

    Why do…

  7. Make it More streamer friendly?

    I think adding a separate window connected to the stream would be beneficial so that OBS software can detect the window more easily and you don't have to jump through so many hoops. Also, I think a way to create better tracking and even add an option for the puppets could be exported much like Live2D can export theirs, would be beneficial. Being able to add your already rigged puppet to a different non-adobe software would be great for streamers looking to become VTubers. Personally, I find the streaming to be clunky and not well thought out, if it ran…

  9. WHY did you get rid of fuse

    There was no where to say this so i hope this finds its way to the right place. Why can you not let even an old version of fuse be there. I used fuse regularly and now there is no good alternative. Please bring fuse back!!!!!!!

  10. Add additional expressive faces during capture while using Characterizer.

    During face capture allow eye's half closes, squinting, sad eyes, angry eyes. This would enhance the possibilities of Characterizer immensely.

    These extra faces could be prompted by saying "Squint your eyes", "Make an angry face", "make a shouting mouth" etc....

    Then these could be set as possible triggers once the program finishes the capture.

  11. add face-expressions in timeline-context-dropdown-menu (neutral, smile, surprised additional to visemes)

    Request: please add mouth-expressions (neutral, smile, surprised) in context-dropdown-menu in the timeline(additional to visemes).
    If you select a single viseme in the timeline you can easily change it to another simply by right-click on int and select another (e. g. an M for an S, or silence) Thats great :)))
    I would like to have access to neutral, smile, surprised as well.
    Since there are in the puppet rig, too.

  13. nested scenes: option to turn Sound on/off

    I need the option to turn the Sound on/off when I have nested scenes in my timeline.
    Why not implementing a little sound-button next to the eye-button (visibilitiy)? Would be helpful :)

    n the "shy" option it would be nice to add colors, then you could group more items on the timeline as well. for example, red will reflect all the options for a puppet, it will be very helpful!

  16. Bug: Camera from USB webcam device shows up with squished aspect ratio

    When using an external USB webcam capture tool (such as Mokose USB3.0 HDMI/SDI Video Capture Card or Magewell USB Capture HDMI), the camera video appears in a 4:3 aspect ratio (instead of proper 16x9) and is squished (see photo). I'm using a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) with Catalina 10.15.4 and Character Animator 3.2. Note that the default MBP webcam does show up as a 4:3 cropped image (it is a 16x9 webcam), but the image is not squished and appears normal. Also, when opening the Characterizer tool and using the USB webcam capture tools, the video camera appears…

  18. 自動瞬きの値と実際の挙動が一致しない

    瞬き/分に0を入力すると高速で瞬きをするようになる
    「1分あたりに0回の瞬き」という指示になるはずなので、瞬きをしなくなるのが正しい挙動だと思われます

  19. 音声データの中身が変わった際に波形が変わらない

    Chに『いぬ.mp3』というデータを読み込ませておき、いぬ.mp3を直接編集し、中身を変更した場合、聞こえる音声は変更後のものになっているが、オーディオの波形は一番最初に配置したものが表示されており、聞こえる音声と表示されている波形が一致しない現象が起こる

  20. Freeze sitting position (hip) so that I can control only head movement

    I can make the character go to a sitting position by dragging the head down. It would be nice to somehow freeze its position and hip so that I could then only control head movements.
