Thanks. Didn't see the link to the "OkaySamuraiPuppetPack" (with 4 new characters) from Dave Werner's great video above, so copying it here for completeness:

Here are some free example puppets I created to help you get started:

Feel free to modify and use these guys however you want, no credit needed. Hopefully they help you get started with your own original characters!

Hey!

Whenever I try to open the example projects ( Character Animator Examples- Preview 4 and Okay Samurai Examples), it shows the error:

Can't open project, because it was created with a newer version(1.0.4)... Where can I update or what can I do?

Thanks for your reply.

Preview 4 was released a little over a month ago - you'll have to update After Effects to the latest version, 2015.3 - Preview 4 is included with that. You should have a Creative Cloud installer - here's how to update: Download and install Adobe Creative Cloud apps

oksamurai, are all the free puppet examples you provide and those in Character Animator free to use and build upon for commercial purposes as well?  Thank you and the team for the many great in-depth tutorials!

Yep - feel free to use them for whatever creative projects you have! The only thing you can't do is sell them - they're free and meant for everyone to help learn Character Animator.

THANK YOU so much. I'm just getting my head around Character Animator, and it's thanks to all your work! Cheers!

Is there a place you'd like us to share finished work?

Best,

David

Hi, are the puppets still available, because the link is broken - the files are not available anymore.

Thanks.

Hi Swenia, which link are you referring to?  They all work fine for me.

(After clicking, look at the upper right of the page, where it says either "Save to Creative Cloud" or "Download.")

In the online manual you are using a empty template.
I can't seem to find it on my mac or online. Why isn't it build in the app instead of having to do the same routine over and over again.

I create a new puppet now I get the blue guy and I neet to first delete the whole lot to start from scratch. Does not make sense to me.

What online manual did you use? I tried to work with an empty template -- just the layers with all images removed, but found it more time consuming than just replacing what was there. I lost track of where things went in the layer.

So I'd like to try the empty template you mention if you can point me there.

I'm refering to Character Animator Tutorial - YouTube

For me it saves time having a empty layer document or at least a quick way to put in the correct layer names.

I don't think I will understand all of this. I want to make like a Halloween Poster, or highlight words. I think my free trial will end now.

Hi Cheryl - If you're looking to make a printed poster, Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign may be better bets; Character Animator is a video animation program.
