Hi, I've looked at the other posts and feel I'm one click away from getting the imported video to animate a character.
I tracked the video in AE using a mask, setting the set pose and clicking the extract and copy face measurements.
In Character Animation, I imported the aiff and put it in the scene. I selected a puppet template and also put it in the scene. Then with the puppet properties I highlighted the puppet name with the icon in the properties window and pasted the tracking data from AE. I don't see any results!
If you are not having success with the Ae face tracker, there is another way to use your video in Character Animator.
Just use an app that will play the video and that looks like a camera to Ch. I use ManyCam. In Ch I turn on the camera and mic audio buttons, hit record, and the selected puppet in the scene reacts the same as to a live webcam. It's really easy.
Thanks, I was hoping to just use AE, but will try ManyCam. Sounds like the AE tracker is particular.
