Briefly: CrazyTalk 7 app uses audio and text to automatically animate faces

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Like the others, I was drawn by the visual of a Pembroke Welsh Corgi on the screen, its jaw moving in time with pre-recorded speech, welcoming me to the CrazyTalk booth at Macworld.

CrazyTalk 7 is an animation software offering from Reallusion that allows users to easily map pictures to a wireframe model of a face. From there, it's a few easily tweaked steps to animate whatever is in the picture, with the program syncing movements to whatever audio the user records or imports.

The software is impressive to see in action, as it takes static photos and ? with the aid of the wireframe ? makes them move convincingly, stretching and shrinking appropriate sections in order to make the motion look more natural.

There are quite a few kids walking the Macworld floor with their parents, and CrazyTalk held the attention of lots of them, as well as many adults.

Looks high quality with clever algorithms. I hereby Christen thee an Application not an App.

This video is very impressive. I don't have a use for this app but if I did I think $30 is a reasonable price

Google has conditioned us to think software should cost nothing and run in web browsers. I remember was writing software was a worthwhile profession.
