  1. Exporting Scene and Project for Archiving (including ONLY required files)

    There are so many "Bad" takes, and when I delete a take the TAKE file is not removed. I can't delete the takes, because there is no east way I can find to determine if they are used or not.

    For many reasons, it would be great to be able to export a Scene with all, but only, the assets that are required for that scene. PERFECT for archival purposes. Much like a puppet file, but a scene. Same goes for a project file! I don't want a copy of all the junk files that are no longer used. I…

  3. dragging the timeline horizontally by press spacebar

    Adding a hand-tool (press spacebar, just like in AE) to drag the timeline horizontally. Thats a convenient way to navigate.

  4. Load my own example puppets

    I would like to be able to see all of the puppet files I have created and/or downloaded to show up in the EXAMPLE PUPPETS section (maybe add a new tab for this). Is that possible? If not, can this feature be added?

    It would be nice to be able to see an image of each puppet I have on file so that it would be easier when choosing one to use (instead of having to remember what they look like).

  5. Visual indication when latch mode trigger is active

    In Character Animator (v3.4), it is sometimes difficult to tell which latch-mode triggers are active.

    This makes it hard to get the puppet back into its default mode, especially when multiple latch triggers are active simultaneously.

    It would be very useful if activated latch triggers in the Trigger Panel could visually indicate their state (by changing color for instance).

    In addition, currently buttons in the Controls Panel flash briefly when clicked. For latch triggers, it would make sense for them to remain highlighted (or some other visual indication, like a highlighted border) for the entire time the trigger is active.

  7. Ability to resize and recolour Handles

    I have problems seeing the Handles.

    I've tried zooming in, but Handles remain at the same size.

    Could you add the ability to change size and colour in Preferences please?

  8. "satellite" app for iPad for Trigger-Buttons

    Control via Midi-Controller ist great – but I dream of a small "satellite" app on my iPad for Trigger buttons as a remote control :)))
    So I could create my own little dashboard.
    Later you could add several Button "Skins" for different button-types, Styles, different functions, colors.

  11. Expand all / Close All nodes in panel tree views (esp. Project and Puppet Panels)

    In Panels such as the Project Panel and Puppet Panel, Character Animator organizes information via "tree" structure.

    It allows a user to drill into detailed information by clicking the expand icon (right arrow while closed) or to hide the detailed information by clicking the same icon again (down arrow while open).

    However, these operations only work on a single node in the tree, so it can be time consuming to achieve the desired view.

    It would be useful to support a "Collapse All" command, perhaps via a right-click content menu. This would close all selected nodes, but also close all…

  12. In Puppet Panel, show which layers have Tags

    Character Animator currently has icon columns in the Puppet Panel that show if a layer has Handles, Behaviours or Triggers associated.

    I would also like to see if a layer has Tags associated. I would suggest adding a fourth column to the Puppet Panel.

    If the number of columns is a concern, you could give the user the ability to hide / show columns.

  13. Light Theme Interface for Eye Health

    Can you please add a light theme interface so I am not straining my eyes to work in Character Animator? This black/dark theme is particularly a problem in an office with sunlight and is causing my eyes to become sore. Adding this option for a lighter theme or just more control will help my eyes working on Character Animator. Thank you.

  15. Ability to parent takes to each other so they move and scale together

    When recording multiple takes that using (using face behaviour for example) it would be nice to have the ability to parent or group takes so they can be moved and scaled at the same time.

  16. make the anchor point visible

    since you don't see the anchor point you have to guess where it is.
    Thats not so convenient.
    Please make the anchor point visible as long as you change the value in the properties panel.
    (Or even better than two x/y prameters: add a crosshair-cursor to place the anchor point with one click)
    tnx :)

  17. Reduce the size of the trigger on the panel controls

    I use a lot of triggers, but they all do not fit on the panel. their size is large. Please enter the option to reduce them as on the screen on the left side.

    I also did not understand exactly how I can assign the "[" key as well as the numeric keypad, which is located on the right

  19. On Screen Transformation

    Would it be very helpful to directly move the puppet from the preview scene without having to do the old way of adjusting position, rotation, and scale from the transform control? Just like in After Effects, a mini version of Photoshop transform mode.

    And moreover, I think it's better to have "Space" button work as navigator in Record mode just like in Rig mode, instead of as play button. Maybe "Shift + Space" can be used as the alternative of play button in Record mode.

    And lastly, is it just me, or the navigation hand (space button held) sometimes not…

  20. Introduce a shy (like in AE) option in the timeline layer stack to focus on specific layers.

    In some cases it would be nice to be able to work on just one visible layer in the timeline. A shy option like in After Effects would help you decide what layers should be active in a certain moment.
