When I set the streaming on to a monitor it works fine, as long as Character Animator is the latest active window. However, if I select anything else, such as OBS, Chrome, or a game, then the live streaming of the puppet stops and won't work again until I have CA selected. I need to be able to keep CA running while I use other programs. It worked just fine on my old PC and now since I got a new one it just doesn't work the same any more. Anyone else have this problem and find a solution?
It was something they fixed I thought. I would check the version numbers of the software you have installed on the two machines as a first step. There were a number or reports of things stopping when the window lost focus so they addressed it. However, if ch loses focus then it will lose the keyboard input. I think it kept midi signals though, so you could trigger via midi even if window lost focus.
So, could you report what the two software versions are and how you were controlling the puppet before (webcam, mouse. keyboard, midi, etc)
