Note: This information pertains to the upcoming Preview 4 release. Syphon support is available only on the Mac operating system.
You can send a live feed of a Character Animator scene to any Syphon client. Syphon is an open-source Mac OS X technology that allows applications to share video frames with one another in real time.
No additional configuration of Character Animator is necessary to enable this functionality – just open the scene in the Scene panel, then run your Syphon client (e.g., a live video application) and choose the Character Animator “Scene” as its frame source (Syphon server).
As you perform in front of the webcam or control your puppets with mouse and keyboard, the Syphon client will show the scene as it appears in the Scene panel.
