Digital Video - After Effects Abuser Group - Tuesday, November 25



CrazyTalk is an amazing software that has turned all the hard work of animation into something that we regular humans can have fun with and create.

Terry Syndergaard and Bonnie Erdrich are testing the waters of the latest animation techniques with the children's eBook that they are producing. They will give you an insider's look at how you can create characters or use photos and turn them into 2D & 3D animation.

That includes the lofty goal of lip sync that CrazyTalk handles beautifully, from either audio or text. Amazingly, it also reacts to the volume and intensity of yelling or the delicacy of whispering, animating your character's expressions and body language accordingly. They even have presets that you can tweak to make them yours. We are excited about the possibilities that are within our reach to learn and create with this refined technology.
