    Do you have Fixed-tagged handles (e.g., created with the Pin tool) on the mesh that the legs/feet are on? Would you be able to share a screenshot of the puppet’s structure (layers list with the group that contains the Fixed handles selected) in the Puppet panel?

  2. "joysticks and sliders" like option in character animator!

    this would be a game changer for CH. something like this after effect script: https://aescripts.com/joysticks-n-sliders/#

    for controlling facial expression non-live, maybe even the rigging system can improve the live option, this really gives a 3d illustion to 2d animations, and it seems pretty simple in after effects.

  3. Export nulls from Character Animator to After Effects

    Just getting rolling with CA so please forgive if my terminology is way off. It seems to me it'd be very helpful if we could create Nulls in CA that we could export to AE. Then we'd be able to use the nulls in AE to attach objects, use as emitters, center points for effects... all kinds wacky of stuff.

    I'd think we should also be able to assign these nulls in CA to our eye's performances and any draggable handles.

    Dogging CA so far... thanks for the cool tool.

  4. More mouth constants. "Th", "K", "P", "Ch", etc.

    Complex mouths look pretty bad when synced to audio, and it becomes very noticeable that some sounds don't have proper lip pronunciations such as "Th", "Z", "K", "P", and "Wh".

    Getting the 12 essentials would be a massive improvement and allow for more complex designs.

  5. Support for Rear and 3/4 views

    Hello,

    It would be great if CA would support Rear and 3/4 views of characters along with walk and run cycles for movement.

    Thanks,

  6. Walk Behaviour: Add hip sway walk behaviour & walk forward behaviour like Wonder boy

    Hi,
    1. As most of my characters are woman, I'd love to be able to give them a hip sway to their walk behaviour.
    2. Would be great if you can have a Walk Front behaviour like Wonder Boy. Also include a hip sway with this behaviour.
    Thanks

    For #1, the just-released Version 2.0 has support for separate Left/Right Hip tags and a Hip Sway parameter in the Walk behavior that can move the handles to simulate hip sway, more so for quarter-drawn characters. See this tutorial for more information: youtube.com/watch?v=b1GLkNVVEGk

  7. Incorpation with Fuse?

    Maybe be able to animated characters made in Adobe Fuse with Character Animator?

  8. Getting dangle and collision effects to work together.

    To have objects that dangle be able to collide properly with other objects when they dangle. At the current time the object just appears to be dangling but actually stays in the same spot.

  10. Webcam using my own phone (using Droidcam or IP Webcam)

    My webcam is messed up (very blurry because i put on a tape on it before)

    I want to suggest if I can use my phone as a webcam. Droidcam is what I use (using USB), I hope Character Animator detects it too although I know that it is not listed in the 'Camera' or 'Imaging devices' in Device Manager.

    I am really hoping for this to be added.

  11. Send raw characterizer captures to Photoshop

    Characterizer system is awesome but, it has trouble recognizing and masking a couple of things like beards and certain skin tones even with lighting.The capture process is incredibly useful though and it would be awesome to be able to send those initial captures to photoshop to do things like edit what is masked out, manually draw faces based on the captures, and manipulate the captures themselves.
    OR
    at a minimum add a step between the captures and characterization where you can tell characterizer what it should see as face, head hair, facial hair, etc. Similar to the process when adding…

  15. Connecting face triggers to other elements - or - Creating emotion sets

    The problem i'm having right now with creating different emotion sets (sad, confused, happy etc.) is that it's something very basic and important, yet time consuming and complicated to do on a live performance.

    my idea is:
    if we could somehow for example, connect between the "smile" behavior that the camera tracks from the face, and connect it to other elements created for a smile set like eyebrows, eyes, cheeks etc. which will be triggered automatically.

    if you make a sad/smile/surprised face, the camera detects it and automatically triggers sad eyes, eyebrows, maybe even body poses!

    basic emotions that are…

  17. DOUBLE CLICK TO RESET THE SLIDERS

    Premiere Pro has an option to reset the sliders of Lumetri Color when you hit twice on them.

    Your developing team could add this functionality to all the sliders of all the effects of all the Adobe video & audio apps.

    It could be awesome ;)

    TKS, Adobe

  19. Parenting to Dragger etc.

    Would be nice to be able to parent items to a null or dragger. For instance if I want to parent both pupils to dragger, I could then just move the dragger around to control them.

  20. Manual Multiple Images Option for Characterizer

    Characterizer offers 3 way of building a puppet:

    1) Automatic Webcam where you sit in front of the camera and follow the instructions

    2) Manual Webcam where you sit in front of the camera and follow the instructions (but instructions are more detailed and numerous)

    3) Image where you submit one single image with minimalistic rigging

    I am suggesting that Characterizer should offer a fourth option that sounds quite simple to me which is:

    4) Manual multiple images where you can enter several images or photos following the same instructions as Manual Webcam but instead of having to sit yourself…
