  1. Let the User input Numeric Values inside Sliders from the "Controls" Panel

    Sometimes the User needs to input specific numeric values on Position X or any other property driven by Sliders.

    It would be nice if he was allowed to do this by double clicking the Slider, or through a text box that also shows the current value from the slider.

    When dealing with Grouped Sliders,
    the values could vary from 0% to 100%.

  2. Revamping the Triggers Panel

    On a big project, is kinda hard to look through every group of layers in order to fix or change the Triggers and Swap Sets.
    And sometimes we have to work with duplicated triggers to do something like running a Replay and a Layer Cycle at the same time.

    What if we have a robust Triggers Panel, based on Adobe's "Keyboard Shortcut" window. So the user could search and attach
    his triggers to the keyboard, without worring too much about the Layers Hierarchy.

    It could even be color coded, like on the Mockup image Attatched

  3. Automatically release the Trigger from a Child Group of layers before releasing The trigger from a Parent Group

    For example, the user has a group of Cycle layers,
    some of them are nested inside each other,
    and they are sorted like this:

    . IdleLayerCycle
    . Jumping
    LayerCycle
    . SittingLayerCycle -> SittingAndWavingGoodbye

    If the user wants to go from "SittingAndWavingGoodbye" to "JumpingLayerCycle",
    he has to turn off the "SittingAndWavingGoodbye"trigger,
    then turn off "Sitting
    LayerCycle",
    to finally activate the "Jumping_LayerCycle" trigger.

    Maybe we could have a less painful way to cycle through Nested groups.

  4. Add "Camera Input / Head Position Strength" Property to the "Layer Picker" Behavior

    With that feature, the user could customize detailed Headturns
    or have more control when animating items like headphones or glasses.

  5. Allow user to break the "Head Position Strength" Property from the "Camera Input" Behavior into "Horizontal & Vertical" Strength properties

    This would let the user fully customize and improve advanced headturns (made through stacking multiple Face Behaviors).

  6. Allow CH puppet to create live track inside Adobe Rush (on iPad)

    Related to streaming, it would be great if I could create a puppet on desktop but create a recording using the puppet on my iPad. I can author a video on my iPad using Adobe Rush which is pretty nice, but I had to give up using my puppet as the show host.

    Yeah, this sounds hard. I guess more realistic is creating a video file and uploading to desktop. There is that separate request to allow a video as the background so you can use the timeline to move forward/backwards and animate over the top (keeping the animation in…

  7. Audio Hardware

    Switching monitors and auddio devices on a mac and pc causes a ton of these pop up boxes. Even when I select do not show again, I'm stuck having to close 10+ of these every time using Character Animator. I switch screens, audio devices (headphones to monitor) etc... a lot, so these add up.

    In the Camera & Microphone panel’s menu (click the three short horizontal lines next to the panel’s name to open the menu), make sure the Pause Camera & Microphone When Application in Background option is unchecked.

  9. The camera keeps coming on and off on Windows 10 v1903. All other camera apps work fine.

    I have a Dell XPS 15 (7590) with Windows 10 v1903 and the camera keeps coming on and off. It will stay on for a few seconds, then the message "waiting for camera" appears for a few seconds and repeat. All other camera apps work fine and the webcam light stays on the whole time. I have the latest version - 2.1.1. Please help!

  11. Illustrator symbols

    Currently layers that contain Illustrator symbols are not parsed correctly in Character Animator showing only one instance and recognising the layer name.

    It's useful to be able to include Illustrator symbols to avoid creating and editing multiple times the same artwork (e.g. eyes, pupils, eyebrows, etc.).

    I hope this is considered as a compatibility feature request and gets added to the backlog.

    Best

    Does a keyboard shortcut satisfy your needs? Shift+Command+D will split the take and create a corresponding track for the video and audio portions on either side of your “cut”.

  14. Traditional Chinese

    Is there a Traditional Chinese version for this software?

    cos I was given a Simplified Chinese one despite the fact that my computer system is using Traditional Chinese.

    As of now, Character Animator’s interface is localized only to English, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Simplified Chinese.

  15. add headturm\bodyturn feature

    Character Animator does indeed have a head turner. In the rigging panel, you can add the head turner behavior to a puppet and associate corresponding layers with front facing, left and right quarter views, profile views and even upward and downward head views. Is this helpful?

  16. Preset Behaviors

    A set of basic behaviors likely to be used repeatedly...

    Bounce
    Rotate
    Jiggle (with some kind of randomization)

    With parameters like duration, speed, randomization, ease in/out...etc

    ...All I can think of at the moment but I'm sure there's more ones likely to be used repeatedly.

  17. user experience

    Greetings: My name is Ken Wampler, I've been a member since 8/28/2015. I don't have a suggestion for software changes for CA (not currently anyway), but for user experience. I've been working on a video for sometime now and I have two charactors which I have done the voices for. I have a need for third charactor which I chose the Caufman charactor to play because he could walk. I needed a voice actor for this and went to fiverr.com for this. I was disappointed with the results. I now see the difficulty in getting good voice matches.

    Glad to have you with us for so long! That’s a great suggestion, Ken. We’ll keep it in mind. In the meantime, while Character Animator doesn’t have our own site dedicated to user creations, there are many user groups online and we do have a Character Animator Forum at:
    https://forums.adobe.com/community/character-animator .

    May be a good discussion to start there and get some other folks in the community to help identify the right location for the idea. But, we’ll think about it too.

  18. Bug Report

    This is a bug report. I'm working in Character Animator but cannot get my puppet into Photoshop to Edit even though I have the program open. I've followed instructions to use either control E or Edit Original in the Edit icon but nothing happening. Could you advise any further action.
    Many thanks,
    Victoria

    If you have photoshop and Character Animator installed on your computer, selecting your puppet in the Project panel or even in your timeline and pressing Command E (Mac) or Control E (PC) on your keyboard, will open the puppet in Photoshop or Illustrator, depending on which program it was created in. Does that solve your issue?

  20. Sub Perks for CH Extension

    Subscriber benefits for the extension. Basically Subs either have access to certain triggers exclusively and they can have different prices. (such as it costs bits for regular people to trigger but for subs it's free)
