Fun with CrazyTalk
It has been awhile since I last did a video.
As I have been talking a lot recently to the Reallusion guys about their CrazyTalk product I though it was a good time to dust the cobwebs off my recording software and dip my toe in the murky video making waters again.
Incase you haven’t heard about or used CrazyTalk before, it’s an avatar product that gives you the ability to talk part in SkypeVideo calls without having a webcam.
You can either be represented using one of the standard supplied images or you can download the CrazyTalk Studio product directly from their website and create your own avatar based on your own photos.
Using the studio it’s very simple to create your own avatar, you just give it a few guide points to mark out the eyes and the mouth and in 4 or 5 clicks of the mouse you have created an avatar that blinks, moves it’s eyes and has lip-syncing during a video call
You can also animate your avatar during a video call using the standard Skype emoticons. For example the emoticon:
If you don’t have a webcam or if like me your webcam points to the ceiling most of the time then take a look at CrazyTalk.
