Comtatible webcams that work with Adobe Character Animator . Compatibility List 2023

This has especially been the case with Logitech Webcams under Macintosh OS. This list features devices that have been confirmed to work with Adobe Character Animator.

Is there any difference between 720p and 1080p?
Adobe Character Animator works flawlessly with webcams that offer a 1280×720 pixel resolution. Even pupil and eyebrow tracking works as intended.

Is there any difference between 30fps and 60fps Webcams
I haven’t experienced any difference regarding frame rate in real life use. However if you want to track fast movements or produce animations in 60fps you might look for a native 60fps webcam like the Razer model listed under Premium Webcams

What can I do against latency?
Adobe Character Animator offers a setting for offset – you can enter an offset value in ms (milliseconds) to keep video and audio in sync.

What field of view works best
Recommended field of view is 60° to 90°. All our recommended webcams are in this range. Below 1m distance from webcam to actor you shouldn’t go below 90°. If you are closer to the webcam and still need to capture arm movement the Asus Webcam with it’s bigh FOV listed under Budget Webcams might be the best choice for you.

Even while I have a supported webcam it still is not getting recognized in Adobe Character Animator
Adobe Character Animator has to be in the list of apps that are allowed to access the webcam (Go to Windows -> Settings/Privacy/Webcam and allow Character Animator to access the webcam)
