Head Turns & Parallax (Adobe Character Animator Tutorial)



Character Animator has the ability to move your facial features around as you turn your head. The main two methods for this are the Head Turner behavior, where you draw up to 7 different views separately, and the Face behavior’s parallax parameter, where you move various elements in different directions and speeds to create a sense of dimension. It takes a little bit of work to get either working well, but either direction will help your characters feel less flat and more expressive.
