About This Class

In this fun course I show you how to utilize Adobe Character Animator to add superpower-like behaviors to motion capture puppets.  As examples, I explore 4 of Marvel's X-Men characters and how to express their powers using the functions of Adobe Character Animator and After Effects: Cyclops, Wolverine, Jean Grey and the Blob.  

I also walk you through how I designed the puppets in Adobe Illustrator and organized them so they'd be Character Animator-ready in Adobe Photoshop.
