  1. Simplify and focus on key core features

    Not having a solid solution for mirroring quarters and profiles without breaking lefts and rights makes intricate puppets a frigging nightmare to build, test, and iterate. These tools and workflow seem like an afterthought and it makes sense why even Dave Werner doesnt make advanced head turns or use illustrator for rigging. He knows what a nightmare it is. This is unacceptable as a professional tool and may be why you're leaning to premade puppet consumer grade nonsense for tiktokers with the new motion library ****. Make better documentation and focus on better puppet building workflows. Please. Otherwise the free…

  3. Add a (TTS) text to speech program with animated voices that have emotions and personality

    Add a (TTS) text to speech program with animated voices that have emotions and personalities. There are two that are viable and the ones that are cost a fortune and they still sound like the voice of someone on lithium. We need this more than ever.

  4. Feature Request: Walk Speed as SPM (steps per minute) instead of percentages

    I am constantly having to convert steps per minute to the arbitrary step percentage (which I calculated as roughly 120 steps per minute at 100%). For music videos, it could be nice to just type the exact steps per minute that someone would want into the step speed to match the tempo of the song.

    I think this feature could even leak into the motion library. I know most of the speeds in the motion library vary (especially dancing) but I think if there was a base speed for all motion library dances and walks then it would be helpful.

  5. Feature Request: It would be awesome if there was a sort of way to do a 100% upscale of a puppet.

    Some of the puppets I have are about 1000x1000 pixels as a PSD. That's pretty low resolution nowadays and I wish I could upscale the puppets (in photoshop or 3rd party software) and then link the puppet back to adobe character animator and all of the original functionality that I had on the original puppet would remain.

  6. Ch is way too glitchy and has a mind of its own. I can literally exit out and come back in and it doesn't have the options it had previously

    Fix it..please. I'm so glad I finally use Premiere Pro. CH will driver you insane. Why are the options always changing. Like today....when I click on a puppet I normally get the option to edit the clothes, background etc. Today once I click on it it goes right into a scene as is.

  7. タイムラインにレイヤーのフォルダ機能を追加してほしい。

    複数キャラの収録の際レイヤーが多くなりすぎてしまうためタイムラインが見にくいのと、仕上げのためにバラ音声ファイルを書き出す際にも一つ一つ表示非表示を切り替えなくてはならないため不便だと感じます。

    そのため、フォルダ機能かAeのプリコンポーズのような機能があるとありがたいです。

    ご検討のほどよろしくお願いいたします。

  8. Using dragger on my body but my head stays in place

    Well, it's not an idea per say, but I've been having trouble for the last.. 4-5 hours and I cannot find anything anywhere to debug myself.

    I've rigged my puppet at 99%, but when I use one of the Draggers installed on its body, the head/neck doesn't follow, and I wonder if there's a way to get the to attach at the base of the neck.

    The neck is inside Head (which is not independant) and Body is also not independant.

    Thank you in advance!

  9. 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!)

  11. Pocket version of character animator

    We would love a pocket version of Character Animator, to use on iPad or iphone. There are no programs offering this feature with AI real time animation. Adobe, please create it!

  14. Addition of a new layer to a layer folder in PSD should reflect its duplicate folder in CA

    Hi, I have been trying to shorten the rigging time by only having right three quarter folder layer in the PSD then used the Edit --> Duplicate command to make a duplicate of the folder layer to create its flipped side. The issue I run into is that when I open the source PSD in Photoshop then add a new layer to the original folder layer, the new layer only gets added to the original folder but not to the duplicate folders. It will be nice if the duplicated folders also receive the new layers added to the source PSD…

  17. Locking Layers

    I think that it would be great if we could lock layers that we are not working on. Sometimes I find myself making errors unaware because a layer is not locked. Other than that...I think that the software is AWESOME and I am so grateful for the brilliant minds behind CH. Thanks for all that you do!

  18. Allow Trigger Swap Sets to Remove artwork

    For example, if you want eyes wide open and you have eyelids you want to remove to get that effect, which means you would need to "dis-arm it". If you do it now, you would need to remove the eyelids from the puppet. I just want to remove them for the effect and then put them back on the normal puppet.

  20. Insert Frames into Timeline

    It would be useful if the user could insert frames into the timeline (similar to Adobe Animate) so that it is easier to edit a recording in the likely event that new dialog needs to be inserted.
