    Does right click and then Reveal in Finder/Explorer work? If you double click on the artwork file, does it open the right application to edit it? What about choosing the menu item directly instead of the shortcut? The fact that it is duplicating your puppet (which has the Ctrl+D default shortcut) makes me think this is an issue with the shortcut instead of one with the command.

    The most common cause of this is a Photoshop installation issue that causes PSD files to not be associated with it properly. If you right click the puppet and choose "Reveal in Finder/Explorer" (Mac/Win respectively) and double click the artwork file, does it open?

    If not, you may need to set the association or re-install Photoshop to fix that part. Character Animator just delegates to the operating system to open the associated app, so if double clicking does open it correctly, I have more sleuthing to do to figure this out.

    A lot of what the face behavior does is position and rotation on the head handle, so some of those same animations can be accomplished with a Transform behavior applied to a Transform tagged handle at the same location.

    Depending on the nature of the disability, some of those axes of rotation/position could be bound to midi controls or keyframe animated and turned into replays for easier triggering and re-use of those animated movements.

    So, yes, I think it should be possible to work out a method to get the results you want! Happy to help find a way to support your efforts.

    Hi, I think I need a few more details to understand this better.

    Is this a mixamo animation that has an issue? Character Animator currently focuses on 2D animation, so this topic may need to be moved if it is Mixamo related.

    Oh, no, you definitely do not sound like an idiot. 😃 That's a totally sensible request.

    There's a bit of plumbing we need to do in order to directly support referenced artwork in cloud docs like what the iPad version of Ps edits, but we definitely want to get there. Seamless editing of Character Animator puppet artwork in the tablet based apps could be a pretty amazing workflow.

    Which versions of the apps are you using? We had an issue where certain operations in Character Animator would invalidate the internal IDs used to identify scenes for dynamic link (thus breaking the links), but I think that was fixed quite a while ago. I'll have to do a spot check that the issue has not been re-introduced.

    Do you know what kind of change is causing those links to break?

    If it is any consolation, that sounds uncharacteristically bad. Chloe is running at 60 Hz for me even zoomed close in an an 8K scene, so something strange is going on.

    Is there any chance Ch is somehow accidentally choosing to use your integrated GPU instead of the discrete one?

    Still interested in your thoughts on Dan’s comment below:

    “Out of curiosity, what kinds of scripts do you want to add? We’ve considered various sorts of SDK support, but feedback on what ways you want to extend the app would help us decide on how to prioritize those efforts.”

    Where by "definitely on our list for the future", I mean something we agree would be cool and want to do, not that we have a specific plan on when or any implied promises about when.

    I feel like a lawyer saying that, but I didn't want to set the wrong expectations, just express solidarity for the idea.

    Yes, replays are just begging for features along these lines (including a way to control which part repeats so you can have a start, a looped part, and a finish -- like a wave gesture that keeps waving until you let go). This is definitely on our list for the future. Right now the (cumbersome) workaround is to export the parts being replayed and use them to do the same thing with nested Cycle layers behaviors.

    We ran some experiments and the only severe framerate issue I hit was that enabling Transmit when the Ch scene resolution was very high (4000x4000) was slower because with Transmit enabled Ch actually renders at that resolution instead of the necessary resolution based on the scene panel's size. However, that performance hit was not OS version specific (10.14 and 10.13 suffered comparably).

    I don't have the full streaming setup you describe, but did set OBS to consume a stream over NDI.

    If you just have OBS and Ch locally, but not actually pushing the stream out over RTMP, does the framerate still tank?

    Yes, this is an issue with some updates to the puppet warping mechanism that were intended to make it easier to blend takes together, but it had some undesirable side effects for hinge joints. We're working on a better resolution for that issue.
