Alongside upgrades to the likes of After Effects and Premiere Pro, Adobe has revealed a new application called Character Animator.

Based on the same facial capture technology than underpins AE's new Face Tracker and Premiere Pro's new Morph Cut, Character Animator takes your facial expressions and applies them to rigged characters. It can also lip-sync mouth movements to audio, animate a character's bodies using your mouse, and create physics-based animations.
