So what program are these files for,if not DrawPlus or CTA2?

To open the Dummy_Template.fla requires Adobe Flash to edit and customize. The file Dummy_Template.swf can be loaded into CTA2 Pipeline from Character Composer (ALT-Q).

A DrawPlus version of the Dummy_Template is coming mid-January. Smile

Question: does every member of the team need to have the Pipeline version? Or can I give Pipeline to my character creator and Pro to my animators and let them open the custom characters in Pro to do their animation work?

Only one team member will require the Pipeline version to create the characters. Any created characters can then be opened in any version of CTA2.

After loading in composer ,I get this error tag thing.

After this template is loaded ,what can be done with it,because it just looks like the standard G2 Dummy found in characters.

The Dummy_Template.swf is the standard Dummy character that is already included in CTA2. The way it works is that you would edit the Dummy_template.fla in Adobe Flash to create your own character and then generate a new Dummy_Template.swf. Once the new file is opened in CTA2 Pipeline you will have have your own character instead of the default dummy character.

Thanks for notifying about the error message when loading the Dummy_Template.swf. It appears the left ear sprite at the 270 angle is missing?? Obviously this is easily replaced with your own character parts but I will notify the CTA team so this can be corrected.

Thank you for clearing that up.

Since I already have Drawplus, should I just wait for its template or is it best to get SWiSH Max4 or some other flash creation program to do these characters?

Thank you

We currently support Adobe Flash with the current template and DrawPlus will have its own template in mid-January. We can't really comment on other software as yet until further testing has been done. For this reason I would advise waiting for the DrawPlus version.
