Bring characters to life with easy-to-use performance capture technology.
You don’t need the full-body motion capture (mocap) suits used in filmmaking and video games to track movement. Turn your acting and facial expressions into a 2D cartoon or virtual reality character using equipment you already have. Bring a character to life with motion capture software in Character Animator, and customize how that character looks, walks, and talks.
Start by sitting in front of your camera with your head centered in the frame. Character Animator will assign tracking points to your face.
Character Animator comes preloaded with a variety of colorful characters called puppets. Choose one and get rolling.
Character Animator puppets are fully customizable. Fine-tune your character or create your own in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.
With machine learning, Character Animator tracks your jaw, eyes, ears, and pupils. Move your head and your puppet will too. Talk into your mic and the puppet will lip sync in real time or even mimic recorded audio.
Add body movement to digital characters.
Character Animator gives you the tools to apply human motion to your puppets, like walking, running, or dancing, as well as how they interact with forces like gravity and wind.
Set up an animation rig.
Tag a puppet’s hips, knees, and other joint angles. With those points in place, an animation rig can add human movement onto your puppet.
Control how a digital character’s hair, clothes, and accessories respond to the laws of physics. Character Animator lets you play with gravity, wind, and add other VFX.
