Starter mode is a free streamlined mode in Adobe Character Animator that lets anyone make quick animated videos. Record your face and voice performance, and then add various emotions and actions through an intuitive drag & drop interface.
In both Starter and Pro mode, you can quickly export animations. Use quick export-to-export animations to animate directly in the H264 file. Adobe Character Animator's Starter mode is a free, basic solution that allows anyone to create short animated animations.
Auto swap and Leader/Follower Behavior
Auto-swap lets you automatically switch between different artwork layers, like a hand or arm position, like your puppet moves. This allows your character to have a more customized, frame-by-frame look for certain elements mixed with real-time performance capture.
