Hi KrisisB,

When you say "background," do you mean the background of your scene or something within a puppet, like the background color of the eyes or face?

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Kevin-Monahan

Sorry for not being that precise

I meant something within a puppet.

Example:

eyeball or skin color changes depending from eyebrow height.

Krisis ^^

Hey Krisis,

Oh, most definitely. You can get some ideas from this video. Making Your First Character (Adobe Character Animator Tutorial - Archived) - YouTube at around 16:00.

Hope that helps give you some ideas. Check out the section about Cycle Layers.
Come back with any questions.

Thanks,
Kevin

We can't change artwork color based on another layer's position at this time. One possible way to do it is that you have a trigger that raises the eyebrows (e.g., a Cycle Layers puppet) and also swaps the artwork for the eyeball or skin with the colored version.
