Create 2D animations for live broadcasts, student projects, and cartoons, or just wow your friends on social media. Build your character from scratch in Illustrator or Photoshop — or start with one of the puppets already available in Character Animator. Control gestures like waving with your keyboard or MIDI device. Movements can be saved as buttons, sliders, or knobs so they’re easy to remember. And you can smooth transitions between facial poses for a hand-animated look.
