  1. Allow pasting of external lip sync data from After Effects

    Hello! Character Animator is amazing, however I have a lip sync workflow in After Effects I prefer over what's included in the software. It would be great to be able to take that keyframe data from after effects and paste it into a lip sync layer. As of now, even if I copy the keyframe data from Character Animator, paste it into a text document and change the values manually, I can't even paste that back in. Would be great to be able to do so!

  2. Trigger and Replay Artwork Creation

    Would like the ability after creating a trigger to be able to create artwork for it from within CA. Replays can get quite long. Maybe being able to select a specific frame from the timeline and then similarly to premiere's export frame (ctrl+shift+e) the frame could then be instantly applied to the selected trigger.

    Hi everyone !

  4. Mic audio with NDI stream

    I use my main PC for games and rendering my character. Then the NDI stream is captured by a streaming PC. Since the audio doesn't come with the character's NDI, the mic has to be streamed by a different app. I have to manually sync the mic audio to the character. This would be easier if the mic audio came included with the character video.

  5. Relinking (Audio) Files within Ch

    If you change a source clip's name or location, there is no way to rightclick > replace, which is a pain if you have a bigger project

  6. My Wishlist

    Would really love if the characters were more business oriented. I would love to incorporate CA more into my projects, but I find that the characters are too cartoony or the existing characters appeal to a much younger audience.

    -business casual clothing
    -older aged characters
    -blue collar clothing
    -ability to generate a custom logo for shirts. A simple text generator will do.

  8. Fujifilm X Webcam 2 support

    I'm using a Fujifilm camera (XT-4) as my main webcam. It's recognized by the system through the official Fujifilm X Webcam 2 application. It's recognized in Skype, Zoom, Discord, Google Meet, and pretty much anything I've tried. However, the webcam isn't recognized at all by Character Animator.

    I didn't found any way to make it happen in settings or through the general interface. Using the latest version on Windows.

  12. Additional trigger keys

    Not sure why the keys associated for triggers are limited to numbers and letters on the keyboard. I ought to be able to use other keyboard characters or even combinations of keystrokes to execute various triggers. I know I can add more using MIDI but that seems kind of silly when there are still so many keys on the keyboard that should be able to be programmed for trigger use.

  13. Execute trigger from latched trigger

    I like being able to latch triggers and end with "stop/sustain" so my characters can hold a pose with the push of a button. But I don't like having to unlatch the trigger before executing a new trigger. I would like move from one stop/sustained trigger to another without having to unlatch in-between. Basically I want my triggers to override and any latched behavior so I can move from one dynamic pose or motion directly into another.

  14. Jitter reduction In Body Tracking by interpolation.

    Hello. I was trying out the new Body tracking and i thought two parameters could help greatly with eliminating jitter.

    Interval and Degrees.

    While the body is tracked at all points at all time, the system would allow you to remove tracking issues that only last a few frames.

    interval would allow you to set a timeframe, that the software would then use as keyframe positions for the limbs and interpolate the tracked limbs towards those keyframe positions.

    The degrees function would use the live tracking and at all times be tracking the number of degrees your body tracker limbs…

  16. Add a middle wheel drag for timeline

    In After Effects you can click the middle wheel and drag through the timeline. Can you please add a similar feature to Character Animator?

  19. Closer integration with Stream Deck

    It would be very useful to have a closer integration with Stream Deck than there currently is. I easily run out of keys on my keyboard to use as triggers and to extend functionality to Stream Desk I need to run it as a midi device.

    Whilst this does work, it is laborious and having a direct integration would be ideal. This is not only for streaming but for general performance controls.

    should move simultaneously one after the other so you can basically type the word out instead of having to move to move the mouse
