46 Colorful Free and Premium Adobe Character Animator Backgrounds

Adobe Character Animator is an amazing addition to Creative Cloud with a great concept in mind. To help you make your own amazing animations without the specialist skillset for animating. All it takes is to import a puppet character and start controlling it through facial expression, lip-synch and button actions. Last time we prepared an in-depth review on where to start with Adobe Character Animator. With it, we included free puppets to start with. Today, we’ll continue the topic with a collection of editable vector-based backgrounds to suit your puppets and give an atmosphere to your videos. These 40 hand-picked Character Animator backgrounds (free and premium) are separated into categories, depending on what your puppet character needs. So, as usual, you can use the overview below to fast-travel to a particular section of your choice.

Adobe has just introduced a new free version of Adobe Character Animator, learn more about it in our article.
