  2. Walk behavior should work with only one profile

    As far as I can tell, if you have Frontal and Right Profile the puppet will not switch from frontal to the profile when you use the arrow key. You have to create Left Profile as well for the flipping from “Frontal” to “Right Profile”. If the right profile is the default (like walkbot), then walking works. So it is not the walk behavior that seems to be the problem, but rather the code to decide to flip from the default profile to the walk direction profile refuses to work without Left and Right profiles both defined (and rigged sensibly).

  3. Can I create my own character with Kyle's brushes?

    I find character easy to use but I don't like working with a template. I want to feel some ownership in my ideas. Can you create your own character with Kyle's brushes to create the same effect? Wouldn't it be neat if you make Character Animation blend with Adobe Rush somehow?

    I was thinking the templates would be customizable like in Adobe XD.

  4. программа в реальности не работает

    уже неделю пытаюсь хоть что-то минимальное получить, но так и никакого результата. Хотел просто чуть-чуть анимировать рисунки в детской книжке сделанной в Indesign для электронной версии. Чтобы не делал, но фон остается черным. Результат совсем никакой.

    Здравствуйте, боюсь, мне нужно лучшее понимание вопроса. Проблема в том, что вы пытаетесь работать напрямую с документом InDesign? CharacterAnimator предназначен для работы с документами Photoshop и Illustrator. Пожалуйста, заархивируйте ваш файл и отправьте сообщение, и мы посмотрим, сможем ли мы помочь. Благодарю.

  5. Send raw characterizer captures to Photoshop

    Characterizer system is awesome but, it has trouble recognizing and masking a couple of things like beards and certain skin tones even with lighting.The capture process is incredibly useful though and it would be awesome to be able to send those initial captures to photoshop to do things like edit what is masked out, manually draw faces based on the captures, and manipulate the captures themselves.
    OR
    at a minimum add a step between the captures and characterization where you can tell characterizer what it should see as face, head hair, facial hair, etc. Similar to the process when adding…

  6. Magnets Hinge and Weld - none great (add friction to hinge?)

    I had a balloon on a string. Dangles turn off the string (created a separate issue for that one). Without dangle the balloon would either sway from side to side with no way to stop it (there was no “friction” setting on the hinge to slow it down), or using weld it would be a firm stick with no dynamic feel to the balloon at all.

    I think Hinge would be more useful if there was a friction or damping setting to slowly reduce the swaying effect of “hinge” today. Otherwise hinge is not that useful - things just keep…

  7. Eye gaze and Face input source as webcam or X/Y positions

    Eye gaze and Face can only use the webcam as inputs. It would be good to allow another mode where X/Y properties control which direction the face is facing (controls parallax) and which way the eyes are looking.

    In my case I want to hook up to an external MIDI source so can use HTC Vive VR equipment to control eye gaze and parallax. I could possibly use Transform behaviors with a lot of care, but its tricky as you need to get the transform for both eyes correct (calibration is hard). It also means the puppet can be used…

    Switching audio hardware from inline speakers to bluetooth headset causes CH to freeze and crash when recording and during playback even though the audio hardware setting preference is updated.

  11. Nested Swap Sets

    Can we have NESTED SWAP SETS?

    When I hit "Generate Controls," it tells me I have 496 triggers. I love that the program can handle this BUT really, a lot of these are repeats from one head position or body position to the next. Adding a swap set for hands, on multiple arm positions is what created this giant tedious day (496!) with my MIDI controller.

    If the Swap Sets could understand that two same-named arm positions with same-name hand positions are the same, you would TOTALLY SAVE US SO MUCH TIME!!

    Also, if swap sets could be nested in…

  12. default puppet position option

    I think this would be very helpful!
    the basic position in which we design the character is almost never a default position for it. So you always need to start with one dragger recording of a default position, and than on top of that additional dragger recordings.

    it would be great if we could build one or maybe even a number of "default" body positions and choose without needing to record it with a different dragger!

    hope i explained it properly :)

  13. Scale Track Height (Premiere Style)

    Would be nice to be able to scale the track size vertically in the timeline like Premiere's behavior.

  14. Pixel mask on a group

    Working on an illustrator's existing character, I wanted to ease my pain and use a layer mask on the group of faces.

    Except it only works layer by layer. (one mask, one layer) whereas Photoshop proposes also the "one group, one mask" option.

    I don't know if it would be possible to add that.

  15. camera

    I tried CC last year and stopped using it when I started having webcam issues. A year later, I still have issues with it. I have a Logitech C922 and Blackmagic Capture Recorder. At first, I got the "Camera Busy" with NO other applications running. I tested it, I opened OBS and the C922 turned on no problem. I closed OBS, restarted, went to Device Manager disabled Blackmagic, restarted, opened CC and still the same issue "Camera Busy".

    Yes, I went to the 'Switch camera' option, yes I 'Default Camera' too, still same issue. I performed another test, closed CC…

  17. Ability to copy and paste resolution settings when using high res PSD files to record Ch actions in low res

    Please add feature where resolution settings can be copied as templates to use in instances where you need to animate with low res versions of bigger files to avoid clipping that occurs with less powerful computers, eg Start with a 4K master Photoshop file, then edit the Scene in 1080p to avoid clipping, then change the Scene settings back to 4K after all actions have been recorded. What we need to be able to copy is the scale size of the puppet, X/Y axis, etc. Not just the Scene pixels ratios.

  18. Color Blending Mode

    I'm unsure why the color blend mode isn't already a thing in the blending modes for CA. It is extremely useful. If there is a true technical reason why it isn't added or can't be added, then I would love to know, it sounds like an interesting thing to leave out. It may also just be a mistake, and it got left out when programing it.
    Anyway, I hope the best for the program, I'm having so much fun creating, and pushing it to its limits.

  19. Have the scale and both X and Y anchors be easy set and stay without recording

    The scale and anchor points now are set but won't remain unless you record them. If you touch any other behavior before recording, they disappear, causing you to have to re-enter them. These are so basic to where a character is in a scene and need to just have them inputed in an easier and more stable fashion, such as typing in a box.
