If "real animators" are so scared of this application, then maybe they need to shut up and get better. What you make in this shouldn't be nearly as good as what can be made by the skilled and elite animators we have in the comment section here.

Hello i see that you are using this software even to make the character speaks .. do you have a 3d software makes my characters speaking too ? I know that there is one when am speaking in front of my camra so he will start speaking too !!

I just downloaded character animator and it looks awesome. I can think of several applications. I suppose you could also bring in a photo of an action figure and animate it in a 2D manner like the fish?

Looks like some kind of gimmik, cool for kids and low budget shorts but I can't imagine smth. serious out of it. Adobe, why not concentrate on Animate CC instead?

This is like the iMovie of animating. Yayyyyyyy now skilled animators are a thing of the past and every tom dick and harry can animate! CHEERS ADOBE. Thanks for making the market even more saturated than it already is.
Mostafa Garana (1 year ago)
i don't think that such software can equalize beginners and pros for example u won't get an animating job in some company cuz u know how to animate in CH cc, it takes much more.
Sxmmerville (1 year ago)
no course not haha not worried about that at all, I'm making the point that the easier things become for people to just pick up, the more saturated the market of 'Animators' will become and it makes it harder for animators with talent to get work or be found. Its like how instagram made everyone a photographer... Just a cynical guy i guess

So what do you use now that adobe character animator is gone? I was so excited and then let down once I no longer saw it in creative cloud. And Adobe tech support was no help recommending Flash which I already have....

I'm really confused about the creation of puppets, I can't find an exaustive explanation about the organization and name of documents and layers.
NoGamerYouKnow (1 year ago)
no probs..I havent used any animated stuff..I just do effect stuff..but I wanted to try for the fun of it..its makinf the puppet thats the wprse thing to me..lol..but thanks for insight
Cesare Parmiggiani (1 year ago)
Honestly, I used only 2015 version, and I should test the new 2017. I usually animate with After Effects. I think Ca is a very interesting software, but got some specific and technical workflow and it requires study and time to appropriately acknowledge.  I will dedicate some time to it and I will answer you more properly!
NoGamerYouKnow (1 year ago)
I did,,thanks,,Im gonna try with my own pic and see..I wonder whats better tho 2015 or 2017..I dont know if I should upgrade..Im talking adobe character animator..what do you think?..2017 better? ..easier?
Cesare Parmiggiani (1 year ago)
NoGamerYouKnow it explains how to use some Ca function... I think Ca is an experimental software, so sometimes is a little confusing, but il you are interested you could have a Look at Okay Samurai tutorials on YouTube

I LOVE this. LOVE this and think that Adobe is amazing. I'm a decades long fan. More of this kind of thing please. Would love to see a MASTER Adobe program called workflow, where you could design a folder and file structure as well as an order of execution template for people to follow. Help them track the hours while in an adobe project. Using their software, let them enter a job code, sort of like Harvest. This would be great if you could get them all together, and maybe google or drop box and then, boom. You've got the part of the job quarterbacked that the average creative person doesn't do naturally, but needs desperately. If you want to be the hero of the creative professional, make it easier to use your products by handling the part that drains the most from their job. The structure. Help creatives mind the work flow and you'll help their business explode as well as their effectiveness. They'll need more CC licenses. Just a thought. Like PhotoShop, but WorkFlow. It could open itself up to user generated marketplaces with better workflow design. Just a thought.

Wow, this is sick, it's cool how animation technology helps to make the process easier over time. Still, I hope animation still requires enough effort on the animator's part, rather than the computer.

We already have Facerig, guys. While there is some neat tech on display here, the hubris of saying this tool will 'bring your art to life' is downright insulting to industry professionals and fledgeling artists alike. You can make Family Guy Animator 2016 once you've made a version of Illustrator with an even-slightly-logical UI.

I dont see the point you cant render it you cant upload it so why do we need this program.     +Quick Opinion this is a embarrassing for Adobe.  I agree
David Simons (3 years ago)
+BenRoblox Actually you can render out to a sequence of PNGs and a WAV file. Next stop is usually AE, PPro, or AME.

nice! BUT, it's a bit lagging on my older C2D iMac.. Any chance, Adobe'll fix that in a later, stable, retail release?
I feel bad to who worked really hard on their animations before...

I want this :) Yo quiero esto, <3    How can I get it without Creative Cloud- I own all of the Adobe on my laptop - can I add Character Animator to my older laptop? MacBook. If you want feedback, please don't start trying to force us Mac users to dispose of our equipment, by only allowing one way to access software, reminiscent of Microsoft, no? Truly, stay true to Mac morals.

+Hank and Jed Something like this can not only be very useful for animation, but you can use it for animating your BFFs "facecam" live! Though I figure you might need separate webcams and mics for each one of you, but it would be awesome as hell!

We've been keeping our eye on this software. The Lip Sync is awful but the head tracking is pretty impressive. I can't wait to see more.

Really good for creating quick stories and interactions to help kids with autism improve communications. A level of freedom not found with some online offerings. Despite what the cool kids say.
Jim Le Fevre (3 years ago)
Technically this is very interesting and I can see that the people who made this have had a lot of fun but if somebody was lipsyncing that for me and handed me that as a result of their efforts I would unfortunately have to fire them.

+David Simons Great work so far though. Must be amazing to sit back and think of all the time you'll be saving people all over the globe from mundane vowel swapping.

This is a lot like Reallusion Crazy Talk animator 2. Ive been using that for a year or so. Its pretty good. I will like to see how well ACA integrates with the adobe suite.
Alec (3 years ago)
Adobe, I think you need real animators testing your software or reviewing concepts before making them happen. Live input never wins over frame-by-frame vector animation. That's what we want, right in After Effects.
ZBeckx (3 years ago)
Animation as an industry isn't doing so great. Now you do this. Just wait till Seth McFarland gets his hands on this. Let's not care about basic timing, basic spacing, basic weight and etc. Fuck it.

finlaybg (3 years ago)
I think this really depends on who you're aiming this at. I can imagine allot of generalists using this eventually. I can also really see the value for this when pressed for time (I've heard stories of people having to churn out 5 minutes of animation a week on some projects!) From an artistic standpoint, and to be considered a serious tool for animators,  I think we would really need some powerful editing tools like a graph/curve editor, x sheet  etc(maybe you've already got this?) . Doing the whole live recording thing would create allot of movements to clean up.  Animation also lives in the breakdown positions (still applicable to puppet animation) and recording something can really change that (nothing will ever be as powerful as working right down to the frame I'm afraid). In terms of making  the art form available to a wider audience I must ask what do you mean by that? For students? For smaller teams or indies? I'm concerned that some people would use this and have misconception about the medium. To me the art form is already accessible to people who want to take the time to learn it. Again I can really see the potential value to it. But maybe at some point further down the line, you could give us some sort of workflow demonstration?
David Simons (3 years ago)
+finlaybg More details coming soon. We’re just getting started — the first release is a "preview", not 1.0. By wider audience, we mean two things: 1) way easier & faster to do character animation, so people without the existing skills or time can actually get it done, and 2) for those with the traditional frame-by-frame skills (which will always look better), Character Animator can be used as a real-time performance tool that triggers pre-drawn sequences. And eventually those people in group 2 can give or sell their puppets to those in group 1. That's why I think we'll be _increasing_ the market for traditional character animators. Time will tell.

Sadly, nobody should be shocked that technology like this can impact the low end job prospects for animators (yes this is not really animation but motion capture-driven animation. Same was, and is, true, for small budget photography and video production with clients getting their hands on cheap auto cameras and cell phones. In one of our specialties, drones are doing the same thing to full scale helicopter shots. But we all must evolve or die. Complaining about it won't change the facts that stuff like this is here to stay. :/
Daniel RapidFireArts (3 years ago)
this looks really cool and i think it can help alot of people who do not know how to animate to visualize their ideas in animations =) but wow the hate that comes from some users / comments really surprised me =o i mean comments like "now everybody can animate" are really stupid. if using computers and software to make your work easier shouldnt be allowed, why dont you guys go back to pen and paper and try to do everything without a computer?
