Today, we're releasing Character Animator 4.0 which is available for download from the Creative Cloud desktop application.
What's New in Character Animator 4.0?
New example puppet:
"Hopscotch the Frog" is a new example puppet in the Home screen with posable limbs. Drag near his neck to make him squat. Try out the different triggers or make him hop away.
New robust project file format:
This release introduces an updated project file format that is more resilient to power loss and file-syncing conflicts. Your newly created or Saved-As projects will now be saved in a faster and more compact format.
NOTE: All changes made to projects in version 4.0 are incompatible with older versions of Character Animator.
How do I update Character Animator?
Open the Creative Cloud desktop application and click the Updates tab on the top-left. Find Character Animator in the list and click Update.
What should I do if I don't see the update in my Creative Cloud desktop application?
Click Help > Check for Updates from the Creative Cloud desktop application to refresh it.
We have received several reports where some individuals in the community are posing as Adobe Employees. These individuals are falsely representing who they are to gain your trust, and possibly access to your computer or personal information by offering to help troubleshoot issues.
Here are 3 Easy ways you can identify Adobe Staff:
➊ All Adobe Staff have a RED ADOBE BADGE below their profile picture and an Adobe logo after their username. This staff badge is visible on Adobe Staff profile pages, original posts and reply threads.
➋ Genuine Adobe emails are always email@example.com
➌ Adobe Staff will never ask you to share your passwords or sensitive information in the Adobe Community. Adobe employees will always direct you to communicate through an official Adobe channel to set up support sessions.
Report abuse or suspicious behavior to: firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE (March 19)
Thanks for your patience. We've been busy processing your requests.
We've started notifying schools who are eligible and have been provisioned successfully. We're hoping to complete the current set of requests soon.
We'll update this post soon. However, we also received many requests, where the information provided was duplicate, incomplete, or incorrect; it's taking us a bit longer to go through such requests.
We really appreciate your patience, please bear with us as we work through all the requests.
With rising health concerns, many schools are moving to online learning. We’re giving our global K-12 and higher ed institutional customers the ability to request “at-home” access for students & faculty.
