Real Time Puppet animation

#1

Does Synfig have the ability to animate a puppet in real time? I make videos / stream and I am looking for an open source program capable of animating like Adobe Character Animator. Ideally, I would love the animations to be triggered via commands or link to something like a webcam (like Facerig / Character Animator)

Hi and welcome here :slight_smile:
In short: No
The requested features are not even expected to come one day.
Synfig is a 2D animation software mostly done for cartoons :wink:

I work a bit with this idea. But it goes slow… with a project out of synfig
based in n-point deformation (ARAP)

I’m interested in animating 2D cartoons, just in real time. Thanks for your help. I will keep searching.

If anyone knows of a Adobe Character Animator like alternative, please let me know.

The main problem is to generate a render in real time and in what format to record mocap movements.

Small advances…
