Character Animator

Animation Software

Character Animator enables expressive, high-quality performance-based animation. It’s so fast, it can even be used live.


Character Animator is for anyone who wants to create a character and make it come alive! It helps you to rig a character, create puppets by modifying built-in character templates, by importing your Photoshop and Illustrator characters, or by using new Sensei-powered Characterizer. Character Animator is for everyone from the aspiring to professional animator, video content creator, educators, gamers, graphic designers, or illustrators who work in the media and entertainment industry and require fast-turn animation as a part of their overall workflow. This tool also allows you to host live interaction between characters and fans.
