I've mostly recovered from my turtle finger crushing incident.. and so I decided to test out another animation program. This time its Adobe Character Animator. Basically, you sit infront of your webcam and act and it will use that to make your puppet speak and move their eyes, and blink and what have you all animated in real time similar to that 3d face rig thing, but in 2d.
I had this fever dream about.. like.. "what if Nebula Jazz was a live animated show.. " And so this is a test of a real time puppet animation with my interpretation of cartoon Adam. Honestly I realized that there is probably no way this is feasible because it would require everyone having adobe aftereffects(if you have AE, it comes with it) and what not..
Anyways, this is obviously not me speaking.. I imported some dialogue from Blade Runner and had it do auto-lip-sync... I had to do a bit of fixing and the technology is probably still not quite there.. but.. hey.. dare to dream.
I have no idea why he keeps on winking. I assume i need better lighting on my camera. shadows confuse it.
