Comic books using Character Animator and InDesign

I was just playing around for fun - I decided to try and see what a comic book would look like from a previous video I made. That is, use Character Animator to pose the characters and backgrounds etc, but then export single frames (as PNG files). I then used Adobe InDesign to crop and frame the pictures. I just used rectangles, but you can use any shape it looks like. Text bubbles were a bit painful, so I kept it simple to start with (rectangles - no little triangles pointing at the character doing the talking). The thought bubbles I copied and pasted from Microsoft PowerPoint.

Hmmm. I wonder what this "publish online" button does in InDesign... https://indd.adobe.com/view/77ad802c-6128-4598-8eca-cdab77f597f0

Cool, I never thought about using it that way, but it seemed like it worked well! I posted a link on our team channel for customer creations.

Looks great!  Good idea. I can see its use for school age children.

In case anyone comes across this thread, I ended up exporting PDF files (rather than using Indesign publishing) and have the first 4 chapters up at https://extra-ordinary.tv/ now. Will publish future ones as I get them done. And I wrote up a blog post on what I did at https://extra-ordinary.tv/2018/08/21/comics-via-adobe-character-animator-and-indesign/

Oh, and another experiment. Turning a comic book version of an animation back into a video (panning around the comic book!) Don't ask me why! Interesting trying things. Extra Ordinary, Chapter 1: Friendship (the comic) - YouTube
