      Hi, bit of a newbie question here. Sorry if this is covered elsewhere.

       

      Firstly, this is an awesome technology to have access to and I can't wait to get things working properly!

       

      I have had a character made by an Illustrator and they have provided me the .ai file.

       

      I am having issues in Character Animator getting it to work the way I expected (although the layers are supposed to have been grouped / named properly). The file is pretty complex with 3 stage head turn, a head nod, arms that point,

       

      Initial issues are as follows:

       

      The face floats away from the hair that is in a group behind the face.

       

      I also want to get the head to turn by face tracking (I downloaded a sample that did just that?)

       

      I have headline groups of Head, Body, Hair.

       

      Hoping someone can point me in the right direction!

       

      I believe from one of OK Samurai's fantastic video I want my character to work like the sample "Cassadra" as I have seen that working in the way I imagined. When I import the sample Cassandra to see what I am doing differently then I get similar behaviour.

       

      Sorry for sounding such a dummy. I think I have a lot of learning to do!

       

      Thanks in advance.
