I own adobe animate cc 2015. It came with Media Encoder, and Character Animator. When I go to open Ch I get a window
saying that Ch requires an active After Effects CC license. Why do I need a license for After Effects if I have Animate CC? Do I need After Effects? I don't understand why if I have Adobe Animate CC?
I'm not aware of Animate coming with Character Animator - was this a package deal you got somewhere? If so, can you let me know where you saw it or how you got it? Currently the only way to get Character Animator is through After Effects CC, which is why I'm surprised you were able to get it on its own!
