  1. 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!)

  2. 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!

    hey are traditional songs and poems intended to entertain and educate small children and use poetic elements such as rhyme and rhythm to meet the cognitive understanding of children rather than using figurative language in the same way complex poetry does.

  6. Starter Mode: Access to triggers outside of recording for streaming

    I just want to say first that I think it's really great that starter mode is a thing, and thank you for making Character Animator accessible! I love the simple nature of starter mode, and I know this will be easier for my friends who don't animate to understand than using performer mode is right now.

    The only thing that I would like to see included in Starter Mode is the ability to use triggers outside of recording a take. This is mostly to do with live streaming, having access to those triggers outside of recording would mean that a…

  7. give the ability to make puppets in performer mode

    I think that you should give the ability to make puppets in performer mode because some people can't afford software like this and if they could make custom puppets it would encourage using imagination and creativity which is something we have little of these days. but you would make the editor very basic like just have them use like the puppet maker and not photoshop so you could still make money from the premium version which would have full customizability. thank you for your time and please consider my suggestion. -bigoofers28

  9. calibration does not work on my Mac Pro laptop

    I ran the calibration at first the animation was moving with my face and head and then it stopped. Since then the calibration does not work as the animation is not tracking anything. I am getting no errors. I am on a Mac Pro laptop MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) Processor:2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Graphics Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB. Pleas help. I have rebooted the program but it will no longer track me. The animation will play though.

  10. 書き出したパペットを読み込むとレイヤーピッカーや視線の設定が無効になってしまう

    レイヤーピッカーを『カメラ入力』にチェックを入れ、パペットトラックビヘイビアのアイコンを押して
    ソースパペットに反映させました。

    しかし、書き出したパペットを読み込むとその設定が無効になってしまいます。再設定をしなければならないので不便です。

    『視線』ビヘイビアも同様です。
    改善してほしいです。

  12. puppet maker customization

    Currently, there aren't a ton of options in the puppet maker.

    1) Uploading custom items currently isn't an easy task. How about a drop-down for each section where you have the option of adding an illustrator file to that area on the puppet. For instance lets say I'm looking at the chibi section and I don't see a Sikh turban, but I want to add a turban. So I go in and make one in illustrator. It could be added into the animation but if I want to have it as an always there option, having the ability to just…

  14. Add lighting.

    Add lighting based on a puppet's features to create normals. Like reVisionFX's ShadeShape or Stefan Minning's Normality, except that the normals except that ChA auto generates the normals (maybe based on Characterizer's code?) Good to generate reflections and depth FX as well.

  15. Cloud Files in 2021 must be used

    I think it's simply unacceptable that I can't use my cloud saved documents in 2021. "Copy it in local" it's not the safest solutions in my current timeline. Please join the present.

  16. Provide the same virtual camera access options for 2021 and Beta versions as 2020 version

    Add camera sources that are currently not regognised as camera sources for reference without requiring OBS. Currently not working on Mac Mini M1. Don't know if its the same across platforms.
    Previous version of Char Anim recognizes all cameras connected.

  17. Create new version when going back to old version

    Make it so that it automatically saves a new version or prompts you to save a new version when you go back to an old version. I just lost several hours of work because I went back to check something in an old version and forgot to create a new one before I did...

  20. Allow pasting of external lip sync data from After Effects

    Hello! Character Animator is amazing, however I have a lip sync workflow in After Effects I prefer over what's included in the software. It would be great to be able to take that keyframe data from after effects and paste it into a lip sync layer. As of now, even if I copy the keyframe data from Character Animator, paste it into a text document and change the values manually, I can't even paste that back in. Would be great to be able to do so!
