Hi DepphYou can record the lip sync of two separate characters at the same time, provided you want them saying the same thing. Just select both in the Record stage and turn on record for both. I doubt that this would be considered best practice though.There are some backgrounds offered if you click the See More button on the Start area. These are just jpg files.Regarding software to create the character it depends which one you are or can become most comfortable with. They do have different feat...

Moving this from After Effects​ to Character Animator

1) No, you can only target one puppet at a time. That being said, you can try to create a single puppet with two characters in them. If they're both rigged properly with the properly tagged mouths it's possible that you can achieve what you want.

2) You can create a city background in either Photoshop or Illustrator, it doesn't matter. If you're not a designer then you can buy a stock illustration or photo from any number of stock sites. There are also plenty of free assets around. Mmake sure you check the license of the asset and how to properly credit it if it's free.

3) You can use Photoshop or Illustrator equally well to create characters. They each have a slightly different workflow, but it depends what type of character or art you want to create. Illustrator is great for creating vector art characters, Photoshop can make it easier to give your characters more of a stylized or textured look. Character Animator offers template puppets in both formats so you can see the differences.

4) What you said here is the proper workflow. Dave Werner from the Character Animator team recently posted a complete workflow for how to create a character animation: Complete Animation Workflow (Adobe Character Animator Tutorial) - YouTube

He also posted an in-depth video about making a puppet in Illustrator: Creating An Illustrator Puppet (Adobe Character Animator Tutorial) - YouTube

These videos should get you started.

There is no best tutorial for After Effects or Animate. It completely depends on what you want to do with them. I think you need to look up each program and read about them to see which one will work best for you. I like to use Character Animator and After Effects, and the tutorials I linked to will walk you through that entire process.
