    It looks like you have three of the triggers in the Body Position swap set set as latched. Just curious, if don’t make them latched, does it make that momentary view switch no longer occur?

    If you’re still having trouble resolving the issue, and are willing to share a copy of the puppet with us to diagnose, feel free to send an exported puppet (File > Export > Puppet) for the puppet and we can try to figure out what might be causing the issue.

    Thanks.

  3. 3D Face Mapping

    I've been using an iPhone app called "MugLife" to add animation to my drawings. I use a green background to isolate the head, then use a motion tracking app to pin the head onto my Character Animator animations in Final Cut Pro. It results in an extremely animated head that moves along with my animated puppet. It would be great to implement "MugLife"-type functionality into Character Animator directly to create these kind of beautifully animated full-motion heads. (Adding the ability to customize the teeth/mouth would be essential to create more polished characters.) I've attached a few sample heads to show…

  4. Full screen mode

    This would be nice for screening your character in a show on a projector or a tv that you have hooked up the program to. Where you don't see the record buttons. For preforming live without streaming. It could be used then easy for live shows on school without having to get it up in another program. I did my exam in this way, having my computer atached to a tv screen with HDMI from computer, then midi controlling everything from one drum mashin and to other midi devices. But it was sad that i couldent get the full screen,…

  6. FPS drops during streaming

    I used to be able to stream to Streamlabs obs at 60 fps no problem on previous versions of Character Animator but after the 3.0 updates it'll drop down to 10-12 fps when I turn on the stream option. I keep everything updated on my computer so I don't know that could be causing it to drop down in framerate. Even using the templates, the framerate drops.

  8. Lock undocked Control Panels per puppet, so you can arm and edit multiple puppets

    Sometimes its necessary to see how puppets interact. When you select and arm multiple puppets in the timeline there are no controls in the panel.

  9. Add blending to the timeline layers

    We can set blending modes in the puppets levels, but i think it would also be nice to be able to blend the layers in the timeline section.

    What version of Character Animator are you seeing this in? (The version number is on the right side of the menu bar.)

    What OS (macOS or Windows) are you on, and what version of the OS are you using?

    When you try to click the Home icon, does the underline under the icon not show up?

    If you choose the Window > Workspace > Home menu command, does it switch to the Home screen?

    Thanks.

  11. Live edit-ability of photoshop file on iPad Pro via Mobile Photoshop App

    Hi. Flipping love this program. Soooo much. A bunch.

    Also, I love the mobile Photoshop app. It is my favorite way to create and edit the artwork for my puppets, backgrounds....etc.

    My idea centers around, (what may be in fact, nothing more than ignorance) my perceived inability to edit/access the puppet photoshop file from my iPad Pro, in the way Character Animator natively uses the desktop Photoshop program(app? Am I supposed to call them all apps now? ****....).

    I suppose what I'm looking to do is this: I'm editing/rigging a character in CA. I "edit original," and am given an…

  13. Provide more diverse and professional examples

    I am a professor of art with an MFA in animation specifically. I need to see more examples provided which reflect the competency in figure drawing we encourage students to aspire and practice. Currently, that is not reflected in the examples provided. Additionally, where diversity is portrayed, diversity includes age. By restricting your examples to those that depict generally teenagers and children, you send a message we in art programs in art schools and colleges let alone education and the motion picture industry are trying to change. Individuals and companies are judged by actions vs words. This is one area…

    Needs More Info  ·  Sirr Less responded

    @Lisa Rose, you’ll get no argument on the diversity front and keep an eye on the blog – https://theblog.adobe.com/creative-cloud/character-animator/ – as we add new puppets. You also can find some less age specific examples in our earlier shared puppets here: https://character.adobelanding.com/puppets/

    In regard to the drawing styles, would you be kind enough to post a couple examples of the types of artwork that indicate the competency in figure drawing you’re describing? While we always strive to make people aware of how many styles can be brought into the app, it would help to have the particular perspective to discuss. Thanks!

    Can you elaborate a bit? We don’t actually autofill visemes. Are you saying you don’t want them to run the length of the sound (phoneme) in the timeline?

    Can you provide more details on your configuration…

    • Which version of Character Animator are you using?
    • Are you on macOS or Windows, and which versio of the OS?
    • Are you using a mouse or stylus?
    • So clicking the different brush types (Background, Face, etc.) doesn’t change the selection, or something else?
    • Does changing the Brush Size setting change the brush size cursor when hovering over the image?
    • Does it not function to draw those regions above the image? i.e., does it not paint the selected brush color?

    Thanks.

  19. Arm Movements changing on re-open

    Ever since 2020 came out each time I reopen Character Animator all of my Arm movements are completely off. I can post a video for a better example. but the arms get turned around and down. almost like everything was flipped upon re-entry.

    If you hold down the Alt/Option key while clicking the Refresh Scene button (in the lower-right corner of the Scene panel), does it make any difference?

    If not, can you send us a shared link to your project so that we can diagnose the issue? To do this:
    1. Choose File > Reveal Project in Finder/Explorer.
    2. Quit Character Animator.
    3. In the Finder/Explorer window that was opened, archive the project folder (the one that contains the .chproj file, and Ch Data and Ch Media subfolders) to a .zip file. Don’t just send us the .chproj file.
    4. Send us a direct e-mail with a shared link (via Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) to the .zip file.

    Thanks.

  20. Idea for mouth movements in Lip Sync function

    Presently the mouth shapes for "ah" and "oh" are inserted as still frames as determined by the speech file.

    How about we have intermediate frames for these mouth shapes? Like the transition from "ah" to "oh" could have just a few frames of transitionary shapes between these two (which we could upload ourselves). The program could then insert these transitionary phases in automatically depending on the order of the shapes. It would be very easy for the program to do this.

    It would make the whole thing look so much smoother, and if it worked, I think would be an…
