  1. Non-Static Brows

    When I upload an audio and "Compute Lip Sync Take From Scene Audio," everything is great, save for the eyebrows. I've tried creating a behavior, such as using a shortcut to move them to expressive positions, but it look extremely choppy, especially compared to the rest of the face. Is there a way that an expressive eyebrow behavior can be added to the Default Puppet Track Behaviors, such as Eye Blink Frequency? Thank you for the help!

  2. Frame by Frame animation doesn't really work

    Whenever I create a pose, I'm stuck with Character Animator reverting to the rest pose on the next frame.

    If I create a keyframe on frame 1 and frame 24 and then set the playhead to 13, the character should be posed as a roughly 50/50 blend of the two. Though it's "calculated" not a hard keyframe. If I move a limb or the body etc, that should create a keyframe at that point.

    What happens instead is, every time I ctrl+2, and then advance, or even just hold in place, the puppet reverts to it's "neutral" pose and to…

  3. AI will not load from Character Animator

    So I am pressing Ctrl + E to bring up AI so I can edit my puppet but all that does is duplicate my puppet, It does not bring me to AI. Even if I were to click edit original the same thing happens.

    This might be a bug issue. I've already tried uninstalling AI and CA and reinstalling but that didn't do anything. Please help.

    Just to be clear, AI can open when I lauch it by itself, but it is not loading via Character Animator. Neither is photoshop. The edit original option just duplicates my puppet instead of…

  4. more precise control over the rotation and scale y/x options.

    the idea to rotate a character or object in place without it rotating clock or counter across the whole scene screen. Just having it rotate in place would be really/very nice.

    And the same idea goes for the scale y/x. Scaling a character or an object in place without it going up or down the screen when i try to scale it.

    I think tweaking these controls would make them more precise and accurate... Thanks for reading my idea :] 7-27-2020

  6. Dangle lags / stutters / jitters

    I have back hair that is independent. Suddenly it started to stutter. I tried to re-rig the puppet and suddenly it started again. It looks like this: [https://community.adobe.com/legacyfs/online/1663494_Dangle%20Capture.gif]
    The stutter is only visible if I move my head slowly. If I hold my head still and then move it fast to another location and then hold still, the jitter is not noticeable.

    Win10 64, GTX1080Ti, Ryzen 7 1700

  7. Draft Export

    Create a fast export option. It's the same as the animation you see when you play the scene. (variable framerate)

  8. Audio Hardware

    Switching monitors and auddio devices on a mac and pc causes a ton of these pop up boxes. Even when I select do not show again, I'm stuck having to close 10+ of these every time using Character Animator. I switch screens, audio devices (headphones to monitor) etc... a lot, so these add up.

    If you have photoshop and Character Animator installed on your computer, selecting your puppet in the Project panel or even in your timeline and pressing Command E (Mac) or Control E (PC) on your keyboard, will open the puppet in Photoshop or Illustrator, depending on which program it was created in. Does that solve your issue?

  11. Fix freeze on Mac os Mojave

    There is an issue with the latest version of character freezing when it shows the record section. I have the previous version installed now and it doesn't suffer with the fault.

    What version of Mojave are you on? There were some issues with the very first release that were resolved by users updating to 10.14.1 or higher. Let us know if you continue to have issues.

  13. Smoother animations.

    You could add more functionalities for smoothing animations, for example mouth animations.
