  1. User Defined Cache location & Dynamic link with AE Audio stability

    Hello. I am used to setting the CACHE location of PS, PrP and AE to a specific, fast external drive. I like having one place that I can empty if I need to, instead of hunting down multiple cache locations to trash whenever anything goes awry with dynamic link, etc. Is it possible to add a user-defined cache location for CH? I imagine trashing CH cache files will be a work-around when dynamically-linked CH files suddenly stop playing audio in AE with the error, "After Effects warning: audio conforming failed, check media cache preferences." I imagine this would also allow…

    You should be able to simply COPY the assets on a scene and PASTE into another.

  3. Some sort of 'TakeMaker' panel

    Inserts a take of x length with blend in/out of x frames. Ability to adjust the length of take and number of blend frames in a panel. Similar to 'record take from work area' but without the looping.

  4. 動画のインポート機能やマスク機能を追加してほしい。

    動画を見ながらCHの動きがコントロールでるので便利だからです。
    また、Prに装備されているマスク機能があると便利だと思います。
    ご検討よろしくお願いいたします。

  6. Create new version when going back to old version

    Make it so that it automatically saves a new version or prompts you to save a new version when you go back to an old version. I just lost several hours of work because I went back to check something in an old version and forgot to create a new one before I did...

  7. 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.

  8. I have a steering wheel I want to have one arm in foreground of it and one in background but if I add it to my character it distorts it.

    I have a steering wheel that I want to have one arm in foreground of and one in background but if I add it to my character it distorts it. The torso goes into mid air not connected to the rest of the body. If I add the arm as a separate Ai file it keeps putting it back to default position when I switch back to my character.

  10. Add Effects

    I would like can add effects that you add before at illustrator like blur and blending layers mode, because when you used in illustrator, then CH doesn't take that effects

  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.

  18. Add lighting.

    Add lighting based on a puppet's features to create normals. Like reVisionFX's ShadeShape or Stefan Minning's Normality, except that the normals except that ChA auto generates the normals (maybe based on Characterizer's code?) Good to generate reflections and depth FX as well.

  19. Masking to hidden layers

    What would be really handy is if you could mask to hidden layers. At the moment, unless Im mistaken, you can only mask to layers that are exposed (if you alter the opacity it affects that which is being masked to it) and you can only mask to a layer beneath. This is an issue I bump into time and time again

  20. ¡Puppet tags dissapear every time I open the project!

    I have to redo all the rigging every time I open a project because when I reopen the project I get an error, and then when I check the puppet all the tags are gone!
