I was using Character Animator in a project with 3 puppets, instanced that CH project in After Effects successful, in the next day the AE couldn´t find CH puppets.
I tried began a new AE project and that error message appears:
"After Effects error: Could not connect to Adobe Character Animator 2020. Please Verify that Adobe Character Animator 2020 is installed (86::1)"
I checked all actualizations, and also tried to down one version of AE, without results.
These are my versions.
There are slightly newer versions out now - AE is 17.7 and CH is 3.5. If you update does that help?
Worst case scenario, you can export PNG + WAV from Character Animator to bring into AE, but dynamic link is better if you can get it to work!
Same error here. Both AE and CH are ver 22.0.
Any updates on this from Adobe technical team?
New versions came out this week - I was able to get it to work with v22.1.1 of CH and AE. Can you try updating and see if that works for you as well?
