Is there a way to open more than one instance of Adobe Character Animator on one PC?  

I've found methods of adding "-m" to the end of the .exe shortcut (doesn't work), and am wondering if there's another way.

I'd like to run multiple puppets in real time without using LDI and requiring multiple computers.  This appears possible by routing virtual cameras/audio to multiple instances rather than requiring two people with two computers.

Try --multi (this is only needed on Windows; on macOS you can already launch more than one instance via the command line). Warning: we don’t test the app this way, and you should make sure each instance has a different project open otherwise any changes to the project will conflict between the instances. You can pass the path to the project on the command line to prevent it opening the most-recently-opened project.

This works, thank you. I tried a 3rd party app (Sandboxie) which allows multiple instances and doesn't have issues opening the same project multiple times.  Looks like both will work.
