Animate in real time. Really.

Create a character and animate it with your own performance. Character Animator uses your expressions and movements to animate your characters in real-time. So when you smile or nod your head, your character does, too. It’s so fast, you can even stream your animations live.

Create a character in seconds.

Turn any piece of art into an animated character using your webcam and new Characteriser, powered by Adobe Sensei AI. Or create characters by modifying the built-in character templates available in Character Animator or importing art from Illustrator or Photoshop.

Put your best face forward.

Easily bring your character to life through your own performance. Using your webcam and microphone, Character Animator matches your expressions — from syncing lips to tracking eyes and facial features — to animate your character in real time. Look surprised, happy or angry and your character does, too.

Getting your character to move doesn’t take a lot of work. Control gestures like waving with your keyboard or MIDI device. Movements can be saved as buttons, so they’re easier to remember than key commands.

It’s showtime.

Check out the Hollywood studios, broadcasters and online content creators who use Character Animator to bring their characters to life in real time. The app is powerfully fast and integrates with other Adobe apps for a seamless animation workflow. So you can take your own characters live or bring them into Premiere Pro or After Effects to include in bigger projects. It’s the next generation of animation tools. Available now.
