  1. characterizer edit not working

    When I create a new character style in characterizer, or attempt to edit an existing one, the brush does not work. Trying to change what is hair, face, etc.. does not function.

    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.

    When the application cannot locate the artwork for a puppet file, you can select the puppet in the Project panel, then click the orange file path in the Properties panel to select the correct/updated location for it.

    Thanks for the feedback on making the process of relinking a little more understandable.

    Or are you encountering a different relinking issue?

  3. Create a higher quality "compute lip sync from scene audio"

    Please create a setting(s) for creating a more accurate "lip sync from scene audio". Maybe leave the current way it's done for people who want it done with the current quality/time, but allow people to choose a much higher quality setting (and let the software run for 10x the current time if necessary). I currently spend many hours fixing the visemes for my dialogue (at least 30 hours for a 30 minute animation). There isn't one string of dialogue that I don't have to fix.

    Is this possible?

  4. 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

    What is the software that’s rendering the information in the upper-left corner of the Scene panel? Is this from the GeForce Experience software’s overlay functionality?

    Can you try disabling that software that’s showing frame rate and other info in OpenGL views to see if that helps? Character Animator uses OpenGL to render content in the Scene and Puppet panels.

    Thanks.

  6. I am getting an error when I import the free puppet Tull.

    I am getting an error when I import the free puppet Tull. I have the latest version of Character animator but I am getting an error code.

    Does this issue occur if you import the Tull.puppet file into a new project, or just an existing project?

    Does the puppet show up in the Project panel after dismissing the error message?

    Another thing to try:
    1. Quit Character Animator, then wait ~10 seconds.
    2. Relaunch Character Animator and immediately hold down the Shift key while it’s launching. This prevents any scenes/puppets from opening in their respective panels.
    3. Try importing Tull.puppet again.

    Please let us know if that workaround works for you. Thanks.

  7. 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…

  8. Snapchat style 3d mask building and face augmenting

    Snapchat style 3d mask building and face augmenting. Soemthing that feels less paper cut. Maybe allow us to mix our real eyes in with cartoon features. I know this is a big ask, but character animator is a bit underwhelming when you see the possibilities in something like Snapchat face filters (lenses)
