I've been playing with the preview version of Adobe Character Animator for a month or so. Animator is designed to create animation from your live movements in front of a webcam and lip sync from your live voice into a microphone. But it can be hard to get everything just right when you have to do it live. I found out on the Adobe forum ( https://forums.adobe.com/message/8400368#8400368 ) that you can also create animation and lip sync in Character Animator from a video clip. Then you can either make a video of the animation directly, for example using Adobe Media Encoder, or else bring the animation into After Effects and continue to work on it.

Here's how:







You can download the "puppet" here:

Well, that's nice.
However, if I had heard even the slightest breath of people using Character Animator during the period since it was announced and today, your kind offer may have actually meant something.

I know of NO ONE who uses Character Animator. I have seen absolutely ZERO questions on its use. And this is a forum where you see questions on using the Stroke effect.

This leads me to believe that the thing doesn't work, and I am not the least bit surprised.

If you have evidence to the contrary, by all means please share it.

constructive as ever 😃

it doesn't seem like many people are using it but that's no reason to not experiment with it or talk about it. And of the few who have used it, one was THE SIMPSONS...
