    Recording Question


      How do folks!


      I'm interested in creating a character and using it within youtube, like a host, maybe live streaming/ game plays etc.

      So my question is, is there a way of recording a character while recording said game play? or would this have to be

      done on a separate system? ie one recording CA and the other recording something else?


      any info, or examples of this being done would be great!!!

          Hopefully someone else can comment in the technology side (how to merge the different streams). But a first test you could do is to stream the game and just use CH in the same machine. I suspect, unless your machine is a BEAST that CH or the game will get sluggish. Both CH and video capture need to be real time in the same machine, which I suspect will be too much for most machines.

            I have a pretty beastly rig to be fair, so i'm not too fussed on lag.

            As far as i can figure, I can record CA in the background while the gameplay takes place and to animate the puppet accurately afterwards. I can add those bits in later problem is - recording both at the same time...  :/

            this is most perplexing...

              I have not used it, but CA can be used for live streaming Adobe Character Animator Help | Stream a scene live . I suspect you may be able to feed it into OBS studio and use it to merge your game play and CA and stream that out live to Twitch/YouTube etc.  There was an Adobe ”Tips and Tricks” episode a while back that talked about people using live streaming of YouTube channels I think it was.


              Or as you say, record a long CA session, then use Premier Pro to merge the screen recording with superimposed puppet recording later. (If you do this, turn off the CA “scene” windows while recording - it chews up quite a bit of CPU.)
