is it possible to use Adobe Character Animator to design a cartoonish character and then bring it to a video i shot, in After Effects?
Absolutely. It just takes a lot of planning and understanding of rotoscope and layering. Any composite you have ever seen in any movie or commercial can be accomplished with AE and many you see every day have.
