"Our aim, at Reallusion, is to develop tools that allows everyone with a PC the ability to create animation either with images like in CrazyTalk to make any image talk, or for those who want to step into a full animation environment like iClone, the ability to get started. And within minutes have a character on the screen animating and speaking lines that you're giving it from your own computer microphone or audio that you've imported into the software." With a pet photo for instance…the mouth moves…the eyes blink…you can even change moods.
"Typically with CrazyTalk, we'll see a umber of videos being published directly to YouTube. Our products allow you to really feed that frenzy." You can try it for free at Reallusion.com. A version to animate video avatars for Skype costs 20 dollars. A standard version of CrazyTalk 5 is under 50 dollars. Bloomberg Boot Camp, I'm Fred Fishkin.
