I have a client asking for something I don't have experience with. They want a video that looks like this:

So I'm looking for plugins for Motion that will do customizable animated people. I've found mCharacter:, but not much else. I'm not digging the look of the characters in mCharacter, but it would work. The characters in the example video are more refined and slick looking. Are there any other options like this for Motion?

And the animated buildings in the beginning...are those likely stock animations?

Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

You can edit the characters from mCharacter in Motion, as well as making custom objects and backgrounds - I have used it in a few projects, and it can be very convincing!

The puppet tool in AE is a definite advantage for this sort of thing. As is the way AE deals with parenting. Linking in Motion can achieve the same thing, but parenting is much easier to use IMO. mCharacter is the only real solution I've seen in the motion side.
