Today, we're releasing Character Animator 3.5 which is available for download from the Creative Cloud desktop application. This release includes the following new features:
Timeline snapping options:
The Timeline menu options, Snap to Frames and Snap to Objects, let you control the snapping of tracks, takes, and markers to frame boundaries and other objects in the timeline.
Pin Feet When Standing option now defaults on:
Pin Feet When Standing, the parameter that lets you pin the character's feet to the ground when not walking is now set to on by default. Use this parameter when you have a single left or right view that is sometimes walking and sometimes standing.
For details, visit the What's New page.

I updated and now I am getting this message. Any Thoughts?
That’s unusual. Try option-clicking on the Refresh button at the bottom of the scene panel.
It looks like this:
Thanks. It didnt work, but... I went ahead and rebuilt the puppet in a new file. that worked, but the original puppet did not. It's the first time this happens. Hopefully it was just a glitch and isnt a problem for anyone else.
If you still have the problem puppet and you're willing to share it with us for diagnostic purposes, please send me a link privately.
