  1. Addition of a new layer to a layer folder in PSD should reflect its duplicate folder in CA

    Hi, I have been trying to shorten the rigging time by only having right three quarter folder layer in the PSD then used the Edit --> Duplicate command to make a duplicate of the folder layer to create its flipped side. The issue I run into is that when I open the source PSD in Photoshop then add a new layer to the original folder layer, the new layer only gets added to the original folder but not to the duplicate folders. It will be nice if the duplicated folders also receive the new layers added to the source PSD…

  2. Locking Layers

    I think that it would be great if we could lock layers that we are not working on. Sometimes I find myself making errors unaware because a layer is not locked. Other than that...I think that the software is AWESOME and I am so grateful for the brilliant minds behind CH. Thanks for all that you do!

  3. Allow Trigger Swap Sets to Remove artwork

    For example, if you want eyes wide open and you have eyelids you want to remove to get that effect, which means you would need to "dis-arm it". If you do it now, you would need to remove the eyelids from the puppet. I just want to remove them for the effect and then put them back on the normal puppet.

  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. Maker for .maker files

    Honestly, if you ever made a character in character makers, most of them are made by people who are doing them for other people, not company. While with maker files, there is a set of puppets you can choose from, and the styles are limited. Making a maker for .maker files would be a great solution! There are artist who will be able to make a custom makers, and Character Animator community would rise! There is a need for it.

  9. I would like to be able to attach or pin one independent layer to another independent layer rather than just the static body layer.

    I would like to be able to attach or pin one independent layer to another independent layer rather than just the static body layer. I would like to be able to build limbs or even body structures that are made up of independent layers chained together, like segments of snake skin all attached to a single spine element. I'm imagining it like a blend on a path in illustrator, only I can now attach draggable handles to that path and animate it.

  10. Ch is way too glitchy and has a mind of its own. I can literally exit out and come back in and it doesn't have the options it had previously

    Fix it..please. I'm so glad I finally use Premiere Pro. CH will driver you insane. Why are the options always changing. Like today....when I click on a puppet I normally get the option to edit the clothes, background etc. Today once I click on it it goes right into a scene as is.

  11. For compute lip sync to audio with transcript, a way to prioritize one or the other when there is a conflict.

    When using an audio track and a transcript, whenever one does not match the other, currently, it doesn't do anything at all. So your puppet just sits there with his mouth closed during those sequences where there is a conflict between transcript and audio.

    What would be immensely helpful would be a way to tell the lip sync process to, whenever there is a conflict, just use the audio or just use the transcript for the lip sync visemes generated, or nothing at all, like it is now. This way, there is at least something to work with in those…

    Many styles in Puppet Maker have color options. Or are you referring to puppets that you've created/rigged originally outside of Puppet Maker that you want to open in Puppet Maker for easler color selection? Or something else?

  15. Add puppets that can turn their heads to STARTER program.

    Add two or three puppets that can turn their heads.

  17. Pocket version of character animator

    We would love a pocket version of Character Animator, to use on iPad or iphone. There are no programs offering this feature with AI real time animation. Adobe, please create it!

  18. 書き出したパペットを読み込むとレイヤーピッカーや視線の設定が無効になってしまう

    レイヤーピッカーを『カメラ入力』にチェックを入れ、パペットトラックビヘイビアのアイコンを押して
    ソースパペットに反映させました。

    しかし、書き出したパペットを読み込むとその設定が無効になってしまいます。再設定をしなければならないので不便です。

    『視線』ビヘイビアも同様です。
    改善してほしいです。

  20. Language support for vowels

    E.g. the sound of an English 'A' is in Dutch the sound of an 'E'.

    It would be nice if there was a possibility to use native letters for sounds.
