A while back I was asked if I would review Crazy Talk 6 from Reallusion. Then the PC died.
Crazytalk6 pro is a facial animation video suite, where you can create animated videos with just a picture, a microphone and a few moments of your time.
The software installs Promptly. Once installed it's very easy to use with an easy going tabbed interface,
Within ten minutes I had created a video of my daughter telling the world about chocolate and her missing piece, pilfered from her hands, which will be uploaded soon. If you want to discover how to use it there are many templates you can use to practice with, including facial expressions, scripts and other goodies, have a play yourself. You won't be disappointed. Once you feel comfortable add your own images, use the step by step tools to model the face as you want the eyes mouth and head to do what you want them to, Fun for everyone to have a try
Here is a quick video review and ramble from old ted.
I will be using the software a lot more over the next few weeks,
If you want to buy. I suggest buying direct from Reallusion, you could make a saving on bundles.
If you want to try the software before buying here is a link to the Crazytalk 6 trial pages,
The software comes complete with dedicated forum access, with help for all levels and abilities, for instance. I asked for help with red lines around the video of my daughter, which seems to come down to a fault caused by my graphics card's awful RAM compression methods. However uses had a workaround without having to purchase a new graphics card. This brings me on to the only issue some will have with the software.
Crazytalk 6 Pro requires a bit of grunt to get it to work efficiently If your machine is older, or like mine using a (very) low end graphics card expect the odd glitch from the software, which causes struggles at times. I've only experienced glitching when Windows 7 is in aero mode and lots of programs are running at the same time, so bear that in mind.
If you want me to try some videos out with it drop me a comment and I'll see what I can do.
