I have a character with front, left & right quarter head turns & body turns. Is it possible to do all this with a character in Character Animator? I get blinking on and off of the chracter in record mode. I can do head turns with a single body, but not all of them. Right now, I have three separate characters for each of the body turns, and plan on editing it all together...but that is going to be time consuming. Is there a better way that I have not tried yet?

Yes, you can do it, but they would all be the same character.  Check out this video to help you understand better. https://youtu.be/g1wbw6-7zM4 cheers, mark

There are sharable puppets you could look into - i think you can have a head with turns as a shared puppet then include in each profile, but i have never tried it myself. I just rerig it when i need to make such changes - but my puppets are fairly simple.

 

You can definitely mix walk profiles and head turns. I would look at some of the sample adobe puppets to see how they did it. Also the top of the second column in https://www.okaysamurai.com/CHFAQ/ has videos on turns and walks etc.
