This year I've been working on a youtube video series using Character Animator & After Effects. Character Animator has been a godsend in creating the lip syncing for the characters. After Effect is still the best option for creating the scenes. The entire process of creating the animation took about 4 months of part time work, that was after 2 months to create the characters in photoshop and then build them in Character animator. Now that the characters are created it'll be easier to knock out new episodes. Each episode requires a script, audio scratch track, lip syncing, animations, music & sound effects, editing, and then publishing, so it takes a hot minute to do all of the above on my free time.
