I updated After Effects yesterday. I had been playing with Adobe Character Animator from inside After Effects and figured there might be an update. I have a Creative Cloud subscription. So, I uninstalled and reinstalled After Effects. Now, I open up After Effects then go to open Adobe Character Animator. It launches for a few seconds, I can see the Ch icon bouncing for a moment in my dock then there is a flash of the goldfish title screen, then half a second later it flashes off and crashes - without an error message. Please help. I was loving creating puppets with this software. I have reinstalled, restarted...the lot. Still nothing. How can I fix this?
I fixed it. I went to Library>Preferences>Adobe>Character Animator>Preview 4 and fixed the permission settings by hitting "Command i" and changing it from "Read Only" to "Read and Write." Woohoo!
