What is a .PUPPET file?

A .PUPPET file is a type of file used by Adobe Character Animator, which is a software application designed to bring illustrated characters to life through animation. The content of a PUPPET file is typically a character or object, often referred to as a "puppet." These puppets are made up of various graphic layers that represent different parts of the character, such as the head, arms, and legs. Each layer can have animation behaviors applied to it, which dictate how the puppet moves and reacts in the animation.

The PUPPET file format is specifically tailored to store all the necessary information for these animated characters. Users can create these files by importing and converting artwork from Adobe Photoshop (.PSD files) or Adobe Illustrator (.AI files) into Adobe Character Animator. This process allows users to utilize detailed and complex illustrations from these programs and animate them in Character Animator.

To open a .PUPPET file, you will need to use Adobe Character Animator. This program is part of the Adobe Creative Cloud suite and is specifically designed to work with PUPPET files. It provides the tools necessary to animate the characters stored in these files, enabling animators to create dynamic and engaging animations for various media projects.
