About This Class

Bring your animated character puppets to life with their own unique walk cycles in Adobe Character Animator!  In this class, we cover rigging characters with 2 and 4 legs.  

Adobe Character Animator is a powerful motion capture software packaged with After Effects.  Using puppets assembled in Photoshop or Illustrator, once can do live streamed animations or simply created animated content for shows and advertisements, having pre-programmed behaviors controlled via keyboard, webcam, mouse or MIDI.  For further exploration of the potential of Character Animator check out the many other classes I have on the topic on my teaching channel!
