What is a CHPROJ file?

A CHPROJ file contains an animation project created by Adobe Character Animator, a program used to create 2D animations of illustrated characters. It stores information about a project which includes one or more scenes and any characters (known as "puppets"), graphics, sound effects, music, and voiceovers imported into the project. CHPROJ files do not contain actual media, only references to the locations of media files imported into the project.
