I bought a 13" MacBook a few weeks back with a waccom Cintiq 16 so I could use all the adobe programs and learn with professional software. However, I have come across an issue with character animator. The I try and record or move the head everything is very glitchy and delayed. Is there a way to fix this?
I don't have an easy answer sorry. Have you tried a few different puppets? Some of the Adobe puppets? (Is it one puppet that is slower than others?) Sometimes complex puppets do just slow down if overly complicated.
The other thing to check is are you running antivirus or cloud sync software that might be slowing down the CPU or disk? There is probably some performance monitoring tool for Mac - I would see what else is running. Where is all the CPU going? I would start there anyway.
