  1. Puppet App Player

    I sell a lot of puppets, but I, and many other designers, could sell ALOT more if the customer didnt have to sign up for CH to operate the puppet. Bare with me, I have a solution. Its not only the cost, but some people find using the software difficult if they are not use to PC.MAC based programs, many today are use to using simple to load and play apps. What I propose is you build an app player that could operate .puppet files. I am not saying do it for free. Sell it for $50, I can get…

  3. 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.

  4. Reduce the size of the trigger on the panel controls

    I use a lot of triggers, but they all do not fit on the panel. their size is large. Please enter the option to reduce them as on the screen on the left side.

    I also did not understand exactly how I can assign the "[" key as well as the numeric keypad, which is located on the right

    Needs More Info  ·  Sirr Less responded

    Still interested in your thoughts on Dan’s comment below:

    “Out of curiosity, what kinds of scripts do you want to add? We’ve considered various sorts of SDK support, but feedback on what ways you want to extend the app would help us decide on how to prioritize those efforts.”

  6. move the "mouse wheel" timeline left and right

    It would be nice to navigate the timeline with the wheel mouse (hold down the mouse wheel and move it left and right)

  7. Alternative to black program interface

    Could Character Animator please offer an alternative interface colour ('light') to the black interface - just as Photoshop does, for example. Depending on the time of day, weather etc. it can be really hard to see some screen elements for my setup.

  8. Keep Audio Track Visible.

    Would be really helpful to have the audio track locked so it doesn't scroll in the Timeline. Keeping the waveform visible even when scrolling up and down.

  9. Improving user interface

    The user interface color desperately needs to have the flexibility to change like in other Adobe programs. The black background is way too dark!

  10. Light Theme Interface for Eye Health

    Can you please add a light theme interface so I am not straining my eyes to work in Character Animator? This black/dark theme is particularly a problem in an office with sunlight and is causing my eyes to become sore. Adding this option for a lighter theme or just more control will help my eyes working on Character Animator. Thank you.

  12. More Keyboard Triggers

    Open up the other keys on a keyboard to be used for triggers. Especially the Function Keys. Also, would be great to be able to add a modifier on triggers.

    You can add a parentheses with the keystroke in it at the end of the layer name to automatically create a trigger.

  13. CLIP LABELS

    Would be nice to have the tracks labeled in the Timeline. The triggers are labeled.

    Sure would make it easier to find which track is which.

  14. Group Multiple Behaviors for Arm/Disarm

    It would be very helpful if we could bundle certain behaviors together - like in a group or folder that can be turned on and off at once - so that we could arm/disarm behaviors more easily. For instance if you have multiple head turners applied to different views, and want to turn them all off at once, or if you want to bundle lip sync, eye gaze, and face behaviors so that you can disarm them when working with the draggers, then disarm draggers and arm those behaviors for recording.

  17. Please add a visible (grey) stopwatch to parameters that can be keyframed

    Like in After Effects I think it would be beneficial to see at once which parameters can be animated via keyframes with grey stop watch icons that are visible all the time and not only with mouse over.

    As Dave says in the tutorial video for key framing it is a bit of a “trial and error thing” – you want to make it easier for users as character animation is a lot of work already. Thanks!

  19. The ability to invert the mask and choose would be huge.

    Ive seen others mention something like this before but it would be huge to be able to invert the clipping mask. Every other adobe program has this ability so Im guessing this is an issue to be fixed more than a feature request. The work arounds necessary because this doesnt exist are so time consuming, if they work at all.
    Thank you

  20. Visual indication when latch mode trigger is active

    In Character Animator (v3.4), it is sometimes difficult to tell which latch-mode triggers are active.

    This makes it hard to get the puppet back into its default mode, especially when multiple latch triggers are active simultaneously.

    It would be very useful if activated latch triggers in the Trigger Panel could visually indicate their state (by changing color for instance).

    In addition, currently buttons in the Controls Panel flash briefly when clicked. For latch triggers, it would make sense for them to remain highlighted (or some other visual indication, like a highlighted border) for the entire time the trigger is active.
