By far, you must have already heard of Adobe Character Animator but have you seen it in action? The software is relatively new and allows even non-skilled people to make an animation in a matter of hours.

Talk Show Live Animation

The team behind The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has been brilliantly using Adobe Character Animator to introduce famous politicians as cartoon guests who actually interact with the host. Having started over a year ago with the live-animated series, the show has been generating large success with the cartoon versions of Donald Trump, Putin, Hillary Clinton, and even the Vatican Pope (second video).  Тhanks to the software’s innovative technique of bringing live animation in the studio, this is by far one of the wittiest ways we’ve seen that somebody has used Adobe Character Animator. Awesome!

The first time the show used this technique was not with a celebrity actually but with a blue bird. The cute puppet “flew into” the studio and had a conversation with the host. The show’s debut of using Adobe Character Animator did not go flawlessly, as the lead animator explains in an interview published by Adobe. However, they contacted one the software’s main creators right after, and both teams have been tightly collaborating ever since. Two days after the blue bird puppet appeared on the show, cartoon Trump also made his debut. Actually, you will find Adobe Character Animator video examples by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, so dig in to explore!
