  3. Parenting to Dragger etc.

    Would be nice to be able to parent items to a null or dragger. For instance if I want to parent both pupils to dragger, I could then just move the dragger around to control them.

  4. Send raw characterizer captures to Photoshop

    Characterizer system is awesome but, it has trouble recognizing and masking a couple of things like beards and certain skin tones even with lighting.The capture process is incredibly useful though and it would be awesome to be able to send those initial captures to photoshop to do things like edit what is masked out, manually draw faces based on the captures, and manipulate the captures themselves.
    OR
    at a minimum add a step between the captures and characterization where you can tell characterizer what it should see as face, head hair, facial hair, etc. Similar to the process when adding…

  7. Connecting face triggers to other elements - or - Creating emotion sets

    The problem i'm having right now with creating different emotion sets (sad, confused, happy etc.) is that it's something very basic and important, yet time consuming and complicated to do on a live performance.

    my idea is:
    if we could somehow for example, connect between the "smile" behavior that the camera tracks from the face, and connect it to other elements created for a smile set like eyebrows, eyes, cheeks etc. which will be triggered automatically.

    if you make a sad/smile/surprised face, the camera detects it and automatically triggers sad eyes, eyebrows, maybe even body poses!

    basic emotions that are…

  9. DOUBLE CLICK TO RESET THE SLIDERS

    Premiere Pro has an option to reset the sliders of Lumetri Color when you hit twice on them.

    Your developing team could add this functionality to all the sliders of all the effects of all the Adobe video & audio apps.

    It could be awesome ;)

    TKS, Adobe

  11. Manual Multiple Images Option for Characterizer

    Characterizer offers 3 way of building a puppet:

    1) Automatic Webcam where you sit in front of the camera and follow the instructions

    2) Manual Webcam where you sit in front of the camera and follow the instructions (but instructions are more detailed and numerous)

    3) Image where you submit one single image with minimalistic rigging

    I am suggesting that Characterizer should offer a fourth option that sounds quite simple to me which is:

    4) Manual multiple images where you can enter several images or photos following the same instructions as Manual Webcam but instead of having to sit yourself…

  12. Isolate Parameters When Selected

    When a take is selected in the timeline, just the parameters for the clip(s) are shown, eliminating the hunt for the specified parameter.

    Deselect clip(s) to show all parameters.

  13. Can we have CYCLE LAYERS be automatically the same way the EYELID behavior is added (by typing it)?

    I find that adding the CYCLE LAYERS takes the most time (besides assigning MIDI triggers to multiple hand positions) after importing. It can also be a challenge to explain this to a client when passing off work.

    WHAT IF:
    In Illustrator or Photoshop, you could just write "CYCLE LAYERS" and the behavior would already be added? You could even give us a letter to add for "hold on last layer" "cycle once" and "when trigger released" [Or give us the ability to change the default of CYCLE LAYERS in ACA].

    THANK YOU!

  14. Folders in Trigger Panel

    When there are a lot of triggers/swap sets on a puppet, working in the trigger panel gets unwieldy, It would help if we could create folders in which to put triggers already made, just like we can create folders in the Project panel to tidy it up when it gets crowded.

    Just to confirm, does the menu bar say “Version 2.0” or “Version 2.0.1”?

    If it says “Version 1.1”, “Version 1.1.1”, or “Version 1.5”, what is your OS version? Here are the system requirements: https://helpx.adobe.com/adobe-character-animator/system-requirements.html

    If it says “Version 1.0.6” or earlier, you are using the Beta or Preview version of Character Animator. There is a separate “Character Animator CC” entry in the Creative Cloud application to install, separate from “Character Animator CC (Beta)”.

  17. Cinema 4D

    Character Animator could has an interoperability with Cinema 4D to animate 3D models with Character Animator. This can be the next union level between ADOBE and MAXON, like is happening with After Effects/Illustrator with Cinema 4D.

  18. Teleprompter Feature - Separate Tab or Onion Skin Over Scene

    It would be great to have a Teleprompter feature that prompts the person speaking with a visual text of a speech or script.

    This could take the form of a Teleprompter tab or an onion skin over the scene as it's being recorded (that is, the script is superimposed over the scene as it's recorded).

    Since I do most of my recordings on an iMac, I could see undocking the Teleprompter tab and placing it at the upper middle of the Desktop, just below there the built-in web cam is located. Or, reading the text as is scrolls by while…

  19. New behavior: kneel

    Hello, it would be great if there was a knee flexion for the puppets in the behavior. Then she could squat down and pick something up from the ground. This behavior should then start from a trigger so that the "go" behavior can be interrupted. I hope I explained that understandably :)
    Best regards
