Reallusion, Inc., a pioneer in advancing 3D animation and imaging technology, have released Version 5 of CrazyTalk, an innovative yet easy-to-use software application known for the ability to make any photo or image talk. CrazyTalk 5 adds hands-on movie animation interactivity with the power to puppet facial expressions and animation in real-time. With the software, novices and experienced users can turn photos into life-like digital puppet performances for films, web videos, podcasts, blogs, machinima and classroom projects.
The technology in CrazyTalk 5 is much like the tools used in Hollywood films, children’s television and major brand commercials to create live, talking characters and animals. With the software, users can transform their PC into a face-animating movie studio for producing entertaining movies and videos for training, e-learning and websites. Any digital photo or image can be used to create a talking character that comes to life as an actor, automatically lip-synching to the recorded audio and enlivened by a broad range of emotions.
Consumers and professionals alike can enjoy the increased productivity enabled by new CrazyTalk 5 features such as the ability to edit keys and the ability to explore/save motion clips without having to purchase expensive extra equipment. In addition, the character animation feature has been enhanced to add more personality and emotive control. When combined with the CrazyTalk 5’s revolutionary real-time puppeteering panel, these capabilities enable users to perform character animation and record their mouse movements, resulting in facial motion-capture control using any mouse or human interface device.
