    If the puppet tracks are armed (red record button for the track is enabled), then all of those puppet tracks will respond to the webcam and microphone at the same time. You can select multiple puppet track Arm for Record buttons by Shift-clicking them (or Command-click on macOS, Ctrl-click on Windows).

    Can you tell us if you are trying to control 2 characters simultaneously with 2 performers? If you want to do that, you can do it by running 2 instances of Ch and bringing both sources into a program like OBS.

    Are you wanting to horizontally scroll the Timeline? Try holding down Shift while spinning the mouse wheel or swiping vertically on a trackpad.

    For zoom in/out, hold down Alt/Option while using the mousewheel/trackpad.

    If you increase Mouth Strength (and have the Mouth group as independent) it should do some parallax. Mouth Strength will also scale the mouth, though.

    If you started the project in version 1.1, then opened it in the version 1.1 again, you'll get a prompt saying that you'd lose any changes you made in 1.5. You should be able to uninstall 1.5 and reinstall 1.1 by selecting the Other Versions option for Character Animator CC in the Creative Cloud application.

    If you could share a copy of the project folder (just zip up the project folder, and also include any artwork files if they weren't copied into the project folder), we can try to diagnose what might be going on. You can either post it here or e-mail me a link at almasol at adobe dot com. Thanks.

    Thanks for the screenshot. So did the problem happen again, or was this just a one-time thing? We haven't been able to reproduce the issue so far.

    Hi Axel, able to upload somewhere and share a link, or clarify which menu this was?

    Also, are you on Mac or Windows?

    Thanks.

    Could you assign the different backgrounds to triggers in a swap set, each trigger associated with a different key, so that switching is immediate?

    For opacity, could you use the Fader behavior (with trigger key assigned) to fade in the background? Position X for Transform associated with a MIDI slider could be used as well?

    Thanks for the feedback. It'd be helpful to have these as separate ideas here so that they'll be easily tracked.

    Interesting idea for having a cycle-based trigger drop zone.
