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.
You have a load of puppets for use on your website and on Daves. I haven't seen any of these appear in videos on youtube. maybe because others have same problem. I have thought of this before, but more so after my recent experience, that it might be possible for CA users to have a place to upload charactors with their voice interpretations of these puppets and others might hire them for their projects. I think this is a big problem for CA users getting voices for their needs. this might come from the CA community who are more familiar with your charactors. or maybe hold contests to see who could come up with best voice for a paticular puppet.
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:
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.
