Update 17/04/2018:
  • Lip-sync capability
    10 different mouth poses. One hand gesture and one blink animation for lip-sync.
    (The lip-sync is based on the same principle as in George DIY Kit. See the end of the preview video of George DIY. Have in mind that the lip-sync animation wouldn’t look as smooth as in the begining of this preview video where it’s animated in 3D)
  • One new Wink animation included.


  • For After Effects CS4 and above.
  • Works for 1080p and 720p projects. (the animations are in 1500×1500)

  • Easily change the colors of the 3D character’s skin, hair, eyelids, eyebrows, shirt, pants, shoes and the shadow opacity in all animations together with custom controls.
  • All animations can be combined with each other.
  • The accessories work smoothly with all animations.
  • It’s possible to use a few accessories simultaneously. (e.g. a cylinder hat and glasses.)
  • All colors of the accessories can be changed. (e.g. change the police hat body, eye-shade and shiny element separately)
  • On the badge and sign you can add your logo, text or image.
  • Full control over the idle time. (e.g. control how long the character stays with her hands on her hips or how long a text is presented on the board)
  • Unlimited number of placeholders in the animations where the character is showing content on the board and catching texts. You can add texts and images inside the placeholders (videos are not supported).
