      Template Puppets

      Templates.png

      • In the Start workspace, click a template puppet to use and modify our built-in template characters.
      • The template character's artwork is imported as a puppet into the Project panel, and added to a new scene. Photoshop or Illustrator is launched so that you can make modifications, save them, then switch back to Character Animator to see the change in the scene.
