Hi community,

I'm not sure if this is a possibility, but here goes.

We use Zoom to run education sessions for students and I think the ability to live stream with character animator is great.  I'd like to see if it's possible to run meetings/educational sessions as the puppet character.  Has anyone else has any experience (or whether it's possible) to deliver a live meeting using Zoom.us as the puppet character from character animator?  Would it work similarly like live streaming? (I haven't done live streaming before).

At the moment, we use Zoom as a host and deliver the session with the webcam.  And I'm wanting to know if there's anyway that instead of using the webcam to show myself, that Zoom.us would take a stream of the puppet character instead?  Using Zoom because of the security measures.

Thanks!

Thanks, Alan....

 

I've done everything from changing the preferences in my computer and CamTwist. Do I need to add CH 2020 to my "Screen Recording" on the Security/Privacy Preferences?

 

As for the camera needs, I need my camera to work in CH, Google Hangouts, FaceTime & Zoom. I can use my built-in camera, when I'm not on CH..... The funny thing is that it works on my friend's computer, but not on mine. FYI, he has OBS but he's not using it. Should I download OBS?

 

Apologies... for all of these silly questions, I'm just pulling my hair out (over here), to get this to work.

Yeah, it is frustrating at times. I wasted almost a week getting NDI working on a Mac. Turned out because the hostname was not set correctly and could not be resolved. Once I fixed that, it started working! So not silly questions at all.

 

From your description, I am going to assume that none of the other programs that need cameras are seeing the results either.

 

Should you enable screen capture in the security settings? I would give it a try!  Logically the answer would be "no, not needed". But who knows! Maybe there is a bug in CamTwist! So I would give it a try.

 

Should you need OBS Studio installed? Dunno. Again, try and see if it starts working. I do have OBS Studio also installed.

I'm not sure if the original question was solved here but I'm loosing my mind trying to get this to work, I've tried everything.

   Preview in Camtwist works, I can see my puppet there but Zoom cannot see my siphon from there no matter what I seem to do: changing frame rates in either app, resolutions, re-installing everything, restarting, trying every setting I can think of. I can't get it to work and the internet basically just gives me the most obvious couple drop downs to click that I've already tried. I'm in Zoom 5.0.4 and camtwist 3.4.3 on a mac and also character animator 3.3  . Any thoughts? what else can I try? is this something with newer "secure" zoom that doesn't allow it? is there something besides camtwist I can use to make a virtual cam? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

It works great, actually. I just went through this process on a new machine last week wtih no issue. Can you be more specific, showing screenshots, with the issues you're having so we can help you? And yes, it does involve downloading additional plug-ins, but this is the best and easiest way to use Character Animator puppets with Zoom.

Oh hey thanks,
yes it works for me now. I never got it working until a couple Zoom
updates later it finally just started working. I had been doing every step
properly it was some random conflict that I was never able to see. Works
now (even if my computer trys to lift off while doing it)
