  1. Motion Library: "Record One Motion" button is slightly confusing for me

    Hello. I think it's a little confusing for me with the "Record One Motion" button. It isn't really clear how to continuously record a loop motion (unless you record one motion and then drag the layer out on the timeline). In this instance, I'm trying to use it to create a dance loop.

    I think there should also be a "Record a continuous looped motion" or a "Record loop throughout Work area" button to compliment that button.

  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. I have not been able to switch to pro mode in over a week! I have the entire adobe suite subscription! This is getting very disappointing!

  4. .psd importer doesn't work, write software to allow importing .psd files

    When I use the Character Animator "File" import function, none of my .ai or .psd show up as eligible for importing. The user documentation says it should, but it doesn't. So the this program is unusable for me.

  6. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. Let the users design the characters.

    Let the user design the characters. You could still have base characters but you could let them recolor and shape the characters.

  13. 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!

  14. Give starter mode access to shortcuts and the drag feature - created by a pro user.

    Hi guys - thank you for this fun application, I came across it just two weeks ago and even when sometimes I'm not super sure how to do stuff - most of the time it works out!
    I started to animate the character illustration I did for my d&d group - and it is so much fun to stream my character while playing online via web came. Also we are starting to stream our sessions on twitch - but not everyone is fine with showing their faces - so I thought - what a perfect match! and started to build…

  15. I am unable to paste 'Extract and Copy Face measurements' data from After Effects onto a Character Animator puppet

    Attempted using two different PC's and installations of the software with the same result. Was able to paste the data to a text document so it is there. Character Animator won't accept it. This is a bug. Please fix it.

    Hi Greg,

    Are you using After Effects version 22.6 and Character Animator version 22.5, or other combination of versions? I'm not currently able to reproduce the issue.

    Just to confirm, if you paste the text into Notepad, then select all the text there and copy it, does it then work when you try to paste the data onto the selected puppet track in Character Animator?

    Would you be willing to share the face tracking data with us to help diagnose what might be going on? If so, just save the text file from Notepad. If you prefer to keep the text file private, can you send me a private message on the Character Animator user forum (https://www.adobe.com/go/chfeedback )?

    Thanks.

  16. For compute lip sync to audio with transcript, a way to prioritize one or the other when there is a conflict.

    When using an audio track and a transcript, whenever one does not match the other, currently, it doesn't do anything at all. So your puppet just sits there with his mouth closed during those sequences where there is a conflict between transcript and audio.

    What would be immensely helpful would be a way to tell the lip sync process to, whenever there is a conflict, just use the audio or just use the transcript for the lip sync visemes generated, or nothing at all, like it is now. This way, there is at least something to work with in those…

  17. 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。

  18. I would like to be able to attach or pin one independent layer to another independent layer rather than just the static body layer.

    I would like to be able to attach or pin one independent layer to another independent layer rather than just the static body layer. I would like to be able to build limbs or even body structures that are made up of independent layers chained together, like segments of snake skin all attached to a single spine element. I'm imagining it like a blend on a path in illustrator, only I can now attach draggable handles to that path and animate it.

  19. copy sound items from one timeline to another

    it's really odd that you can copy puppets and behavior items from one timeline to another, but you just can't copy the sound. it makes the whole copy option useless if i want to copy edits i made into a new timeline.
