At NAB in Las Vegas, David Simons, the Principal Scientist for Adobe Character Animator, gave us a demo of what had to be the most fun thing at the show. Coming to Adobe Creative Cloud sometime soon, Adobe Character Animator lets you create your own characters from scratch and animate them using the camera on your Mac and your own face. Eyes, mouth, movement, and more can be as simple as talking to the character on screen and watching them mimic you. Even at the demo level, it is addictive and fun, and the way that Adobe has put it together, you can easily design characters of your own design using simple vector images.
