I want to produce a series of about 50 head and shoulders dialogues to teach human interaction skills, the successful ones and the failures. These would cover frequent conflicts and successes between spouses, parent-child, worker-boss, and friend-friend.
what's your target? print? the web? mobile app? computer program? something else?
Character Animator, which comes installed with After Effects CC 2015, allows you to take artwork structured in Photoshop or Illustrator and control them with your webcam (controlling facial expressions), voice (lip sync), mouse (dragging parts of the character like arms and legs), and keyboard (switching to different views of a character or triggering artwork to appear or disappear). You can check out some examples of Character Animator on our Video Tutorials page at Character Animator Tutorials. Hope this info helps.
