  3. Add a take track without having to record.

    When I'm working with some of my more swap set based puppets it is so unwieldy to have to hit record and twiddle all the sets just to get editable tracks in place.

  4. Introduce a shy (like in AE) option in the timeline layer stack to focus on specific layers.

    In some cases it would be nice to be able to work on just one visible layer in the timeline. A shy option like in After Effects would help you decide what layers should be active in a certain moment.

  5. 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.

  6. Label the replays (color and names) along with the triggers assigned to them.

    It is kinda weird that the replays don't have the same name or color label.

  7. 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.

  8. attach character to ground

    How can I fix my character to the ground? ,I've tried all all manner of pinning, sticking, adding fixed tags, changing layout and all I need is to get this guy to stop floating so I can start my actual project, the fact that this is the default int his program is very frustrating. Namely when his head tilts, everything below his neck swings the other way like a windsock.I've attached images of where my rig is at right now, any thoughts and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    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.

  10. I Think Charavter animator should have a "Morph" tool. In vector transitions using same numer of points an auto morph will be most heplpful

    When using somilar vector mouths or eyebrows for an exemple, the transition should have an auto morph feature that creates an automatic smooth transition something like an automatic Layer sequence transition without the need of making every step.

  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…

  12. Rename from timeline

    Be able to change the name from the timeline.
    This is an easier way to see/change names rather than going back into RIG.

  14. 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…

    @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!

  16. Timeline Improvements

    Can he timeline navigation be more consistent with AE or Premiere please? Be great if we could drag over the time line and have the timeline"zoom" interface element in the same place.

    Also, to be able to change the colour of the takes and layers on the timeline as with AE and Prem would be more than handy. It's all a little confusing and difficult to work in at the moment.

  17. The dynamic link between CA and AE needs fixing

    If the Dynamic link gets corrupted it makes you relink every scene when After Effects opens. But there's a big problem - the order of the scenes is NOT the order they appear in After effects, so you have no way of knowing which order to relink them in. This should be fixed. Please tell the user which scene After Effects is looking for in the Character Animator file when the Dynamic Link window is up.

  20. Beard Recognition

    I've noticed quite a few problems using the camera with a full (and dark color) beard. This causes two problems.

    First, the software seems to confuse my mouth and my beard hair.

    Second, the software can't recognize the bottom of my chin. This makes sense, but it keeps jumping from the bottom of my mouth to the bottom of the beard. This tricks the software into thinking that I'm rapidly moving towards and away from the camera. This could be fixed by using eye and nose tracking to triangulate the position and calculate the scale of the face in relation…
