I'm getting no camera on a MacBook Pro's built-in FaceTime camera.
Glad to say that the recent update fixed the problem.
I am using a Kinect camera and it does not appear in the Camera and Microphone list. I have also been previously trying to get some sort of MoCap to work using KinectToPin but it always crashes when I hit record and even before that, I only see a blank screen. I saw that Character Animator now does full body recording as this is what I want to do - I want to make a music video of a band playing as a cartoon. It would be great to just use this program and then improve the keyframes in AE afterward if necessrary.
Is there support for the Kinect? What is the best camera to buy for Character Animator? I am on a PC, Windows 8.1, GTX980 graphics card 64bit. I don't know much about PCs as I have just transferred from years on a mac. It would be great to get this to work as I am really looking forward to it!! Thank you

Character Animator doesn't support full-body tracking at this time. Where did you see that it was mentioned it does?
There is no support for Kinect at this time, but we've heard requests before for it. Here's the request on our Ideas page on Aha.com:
As for camera use, any recently released webcam (preferably HD for improved resolution) should work. Some users have mentioned that the Logitech C920 works well for them, but there might be others that might work for you.
