  2. Maker for .maker files

    Honestly, if you ever made a character in character makers, most of them are made by people who are doing them for other people, not company. While with maker files, there is a set of puppets you can choose from, and the styles are limited. Making a maker for .maker files would be a great solution! There are artist who will be able to make a custom makers, and Character Animator community would rise! There is a need for it.

  4. 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!

  5. 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…

  6. Resolution Options for Photoshop (Raster) Puppets

    It would be really helpful if there was an option to import raster, photoshop-based puppets at a lower "draft" resolution (like you currently can with vector Illustrator-based puppets) so that recording and setting up scenes can move more swiftly and smoothly and you still have the option to res up before outputting your final render or if a scene needs a tighter than usual zoom. (I know that you can achieve this by having different versions of your puppets, but the downside of that is, often we edit puppets on the fly, and if you edit the lower-res puppet, you…

    Many styles in Puppet Maker have color options. Or are you referring to puppets that you've created/rigged originally outside of Puppet Maker that you want to open in Puppet Maker for easler color selection? Or something else?

  12. 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.

  14. 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。

  15. 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!

  17. After Update 22.5 Rigged Draggers Not Working

    I updated Character Animator from 22.4 to 22.5 this morning and suddenly my dragger handles for wrists and heels have stopped working and only non-labeled general draggers seem to work. Meaning I have to have one handle labeled wrist and a separate handle designated draggable on the same area. The extra handles - and having to update previously working puppets - is getting very annoying.

  18. 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?

  19. Language support for vowels

    E.g. the sound of an English 'A' is in Dutch the sound of an 'E'.

    It would be nice if there was a possibility to use native letters for sounds.

  20. 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.
