  1. I have not been able to switch to pro mode in over a week! I have the entire adobe suite subscription! This is getting very disappointing!

  3. Add a (TTS) text to speech program with animated voices that have emotions and personality

    Add a (TTS) text to speech program with animated voices that have emotions and personalities. There are two that are viable and the ones that are cost a fortune and they still sound like the voice of someone on lithium. We need this more than ever.

  4. タイムラインにレイヤーのフォルダ機能を追加してほしい。

    複数キャラの収録の際レイヤーが多くなりすぎてしまうためタイムラインが見にくいのと、仕上げのためにバラ音声ファイルを書き出す際にも一つ一つ表示非表示を切り替えなくてはならないため不便だと感じます。

    そのため、フォルダ機能かAeのプリコンポーズのような機能があるとありがたいです。

    ご検討のほどよろしくお願いいたします。

  5. Insert Frames into Timeline

    It would be useful if the user could insert frames into the timeline (similar to Adobe Animate) so that it is easier to edit a recording in the likely event that new dialog needs to be inserted.

  6. Characterizer let pick 1088 in stead of 1080 for resolution

    I think it's a mistake. HD is 1080, not 1088.

  10. Multiple scenes open as tabs in timeline panel

    Make the timeline panel behave as it does in After Effects and allow multiple scenes to be open and available at once.
    Of course, you'd need to improve CA's woeful copy and paste functionality to make moving between scenes actually worthwhile.

  11. Add editing sticky notes to scenes

    I'd like to be able to use some kind of notes system, like sticky notes, on the parts of scenes that need editing, and to also see all these notes compiled in a sidebar of the scene.

  13. Smaller icons, half-grid snap in control panel and more...

    It would be nice if there were a size slider for icons in the control panel. Or at least three size options in the context menu.

    I use a midi keyboard, so it would also be nice if icons could snap to a half grid space so it would be a little easier to lay things out like a keyboard.

    Also, it would be nice if icons in the control panel would take the same color as the labels in the triggers panel. Or at least be able to assign colors to icons individually or in groups.

    Also, it would…

  14. Please add a visible (grey) stopwatch to parameters that can be keyframed

    Like in After Effects I think it would be beneficial to see at once which parameters can be animated via keyframes with grey stop watch icons that are visible all the time and not only with mouse over.

    As Dave says in the tutorial video for key framing it is a bit of a “trial and error thing” – you want to make it easier for users as character animation is a lot of work already. Thanks!

  16. Improving user interface

    The user interface color desperately needs to have the flexibility to change like in other Adobe programs. The black background is way too dark!

  17. Puppets and Scenes in Project Window

    I hope if the puppets were sorted with each other and the scenes were sorted with each other and not combined the puppets and scenes.

  18. Light Theme Interface for Eye Health

    Can you please add a light theme interface so I am not straining my eyes to work in Character Animator? This black/dark theme is particularly a problem in an office with sunlight and is causing my eyes to become sore. Adding this option for a lighter theme or just more control will help my eyes working on Character Animator. Thank you.

  19. Exporting Scene and Project for Archiving (including ONLY required files)

    There are so many "Bad" takes, and when I delete a take the TAKE file is not removed. I can't delete the takes, because there is no east way I can find to determine if they are used or not.

    For many reasons, it would be great to be able to export a Scene with all, but only, the assets that are required for that scene. PERFECT for archival purposes. Much like a puppet file, but a scene. Same goes for a project file! I don't want a copy of all the junk files that are no longer used. I…
