Adobe Character Animator Advanced Techniques – Udemy course launch

With Adobe’s release of Character Animator 1.5 earlier this month, I’m pleased to announce a course covering all kinds of tips, tricks, hacks and new methods of using Character Animator in my new Udemy course “Adobe Character Animator Advanced Techniques!”

Adobe Character Animator is a motion capture software making use of your webcam, keyboard triggers and audio input to create puppets that can be animated live.  As it’s a relatively new and growing program, there’s a lot that the novice animator can do but isn’t obvious or apparent from the control scheme. Advanced Techniques covers many of those tips and tricks, from making backgrounds travel to using video cycles to having emotive eyes with clipping masks and rigging an animal like a horse.
