In the recent release of Animate, under File→Publish Settings→Other Formats→SVG Image (checkbox)→Options, there is now a checkbox “Optimize For Character Animator”.
Using it, you can export an SVG image that Character can import, that will have a layers structure that works well in Character. While you can’t yet export an SVG sequence from Animate, right now you can get the image from Animate to Character with minimal clutter and add rigging to it for performance. Let us know if this is helpful and what you want to see happen next!

Adobe Animate is my go-to for creating vector art. A direct connection between Animate and Animator would be an enormous workflow improvement. Currently I have to draw the characters in Animate then import them to Illustrator. The process of converting Animate files to Illustrator files is a cumbersome nightmare involving renaming every layer, realigning the body parts and dealing with optimization issues, not to mention the inconvenience of revisions. A direct workflow would literally save me a day per character.Joe Rothenberg supported this idea ·
