NDI doesn't show up in Character animator.

Been through all  I've been able to find of this problem. I have installed NDI tools to the same drive as Adobe CC (both in C program files). Upon NDI tools install I see that some of the NDI files now exist inside the Adobe CC directories. My Adobe/Common... mediacore folder was empty, and trying to manually put various aex and prm files in there does nothing.

Just to clarify, when I go to edit>pref>live output I see only my monitors and nothing to do with newtek NDI.

I am completely lost on what I can do at this point. Can anyone possibly tell me exactly which files need to be where for everything to work correctly? Then I can at least attempt to locate files and replicate the correct system.

Thanks so much for any advice!

Re: NDI doesn't show up in Character animator.

Issue seemed to resolve itself. I was prompted to download a ndi redist when opening either OBS or Character Animator (opened both at the same time and have the obs plugin for NDI). Either way the redistributable install seems to have sorted out the issue for me. One thing I was wondering however... When I resize the NDI output smaller in OBS the image quality gets significantly worse, to the point that using A chroma with screen capture is still more ideal. Is there any way to stop this without resizing the image in the scene?

Re: NDI doesn't show up in Character animator.

Glad it worked itself out somehow!

I haven't tried the NDI/OBS connection yet, so I'm not sure what's going on - I've primarily experimented in Wirecast, which seems to get it without artifacts (you can download a free demo and see if the same issue persists). But streaming from CH should always send video out at 100% quality and size, so my guess is it's something on the NDI/OBS end? Hmmm.

Re: NDI doesn't show up in Character animator.

Hi I had the same problem, managed to find a fix, after you have installed the NDI tools, go to C:\Program Files\NewTek\NewTek NDI Tools and copy the file called  NewTek_NDI_Transmit.prm then paste into C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common CA should then show the option for NDI

Re: NDI doesn't show up in Character animator.

Download NDI Video Monitor from NewTek NDI . If you have turned everything on like explained in New Features - April 2017 (Adobe Character Animator CC Beta) - YouTube , then if it's working correctly you should see your CH show up in Video Monitor. If not then the above method is the only issue I've heard of, that the NDI plugin is in the wrong directory.

Re: NDI doesn't show up in Character animator.

Hi, I have the same issue as well. It seems to be happening with the windows version. The setup file does not include the Adobe cc  plugin for some reason. Installs the rest of the other components though. Any other windows users with this issue? Anyone able to fix this or know why this is happening? Thanks

Re: NDI doesn't show up in Character animator.

I am having a similar issue and I got excited to look in the program folder to find NewTek_NDI_Transmit.prm.

I looked everywhere, it is not installing for some reason as far as I can tell. I have run the installer several times and made sure to check complete so everything is installing, The checkbox next to CC was indeed checked but when I look in the program folder...no NewTek_NDI_Transmit.prm

is there somewhere I can download that separately?

Re: NDI doesn't show up in Character animator.

I'm having this same problem. 

I have Character Animator installed through Creative Cloud on Windows 10.

Downloaded Newtek NDI for Creative Cloud from https://www.newtek.com/software/adobe-creative-cloud/.

(and yes, I made sure to include the options for CC, I/O, etc.) 

The NDI option just will not show up under Live Output under Preferences in Character Animator. 

I've looked around for that NewTek_NDI-Transmit.prm and can't find it anywhere, and I'm having no luck finding documentation of what the plugin should be. 

I've uninstalled NewTek, rebooted, re-downloaded (making SURE the CC options were selected) and re-installed. Still no luck. 

NDI is working - I can run the test broadcast, and I can even get the test broadcast to come in as a source on streamlabs OBS.... I just can't get Character Animator to give it as an option. Seems like it must be a problem with a missing plugin but I can't find it (or documentation for it). Help!

Specs: Character Animator 3.0

Windows 10

NDI loaded 11/24/19.

 

Any help is appreciated!

Any ideas?

Re: NDI doesn't show up in Character animator.

Hi all,

I got some help on the NewTek forums on this. 

What worked for me was installing Adobe Premiere. The necessary  NewTek_NDI-Transmit.prm file wasn't getting loaded when I only had Char Animator installed. The helpful solutions architect over there let me know that the plugin is supposed to be installed into C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore and (this is the important part) that Character Animator uses the same plugin as After Effects and Premiere. 

All I had in the folder was a dummy text file.

So I installed Premiere (thankfully I have one of those "all software" subscriptions to CC), rebooted, uninstalled newtek, rebooted, reinstalled newtek and TADA - the plugin was in the right folder and NDI was showing up as an option in Live Output on Character Animator. 

 

So if you're having this trouble - try installing Premiere or After Effects and then the NDI Tools and see if the plugin shows up.

Happy thanksgiving.
