CrazyTalk Pipeline 8.12.3124.1
CrazyTalk is the world‘s most popular facial animation software that uses voice and text to vividly animate facial images. The brand new CrazyTalk 8 contains all the powerful features people love about CrazyTalk plus a highly anticipated 3D Head Creation tool, a revolutionary Auto Motion engine, and smooth lip-syncing results for any talking animation projects.
One Photo - Instant Results
The 3D face fitting technology is based on a library of ethnic human anatomies, providing 9 profiles to help you choose the right one to speed up your fitting process. Make your heads not only look real, but also make fun to test by using the same photo under different looks.
Two Photos – Fine Details
Synthesize an entire 3D head by using both Front / Side photo profiles that allow you to precisely define facial contours while providing additional texture placements on the face.
Non-Humans are Welcome
With the new CrazyTalk 8 Head Creator system, now character creation is unlimited. With some creative retouches, you can breath live into in-animate objects in just a few minutes.
Face Photo Fitting
Automatically fits a facial wireframe to your image. You may then further use additional clicks to adjust the corners of the eyes and the mouth. In a short time, you will already have complete control to fine-tune additional fitting points.
Head & Hair Mesh
Facial angles prevent photo distortion during face rotation. The Face Orientation function allows you to edit Front and Side (≦ 45°) images. The hair mesh layer can handle characters with long hair, horns and ears for you to create vivid and natural-looking animations.
3D Face Profile
Facial meshes provide all kinds of different facial contours, especially for non-human character fitting. Face Profile Styles allow you to animate different characters, including human, animal, and cartoon-like faces with realistic performances.
Custom Eyes & Teeth
Facial Settings allow you to fine-tune the color, position, scale of the eyes, teeth, mouth and lips.
Mask & Background
CrazyTalk's Mask Editor helps you automatically remove the original background with a few simple strokes to the image. Later, you can further refine the results, or smooth the edges with the Feather Brush Tool. You may also replace the background with any new color or image, transferring your virtual host from a dull scene to a relaxing beach vacation, or a professional studio set!
Dress Up & Quick Alterations
No matter if you wish to make your avatar into a punk star to celebrate your birthday, or formally dress it to announce your new company product, you can now freely dress up and customize your characters. With the smart accessory slot design, not only will items be automatically applied to the right places but you will also be able to easily adjust their position. Creatively adjust sizes, change colors, and customize textures to create your very own looks.
Brand New 3D Auto Motion Library
Other than the classic 2D Auto Motions, CrazyTalk 8 also includes newly-added 3D Auto Motions dedicated to 3D avatars for realistic motion behaviors. Whether idling, talking, singing, dancing, vocalizing human sounds, reacting, or other scenarios, these premade contents are ready to make your 3D avatars perform perfectly.
From Text, Audio, or Your Own Voice
Import a WAV file or record your own voice with the built-in audio capture feature. Enjoy a vast phoneme databank that automatically lip-syncs to your image. Text-to-Speech offers better quality for all end-users, plus additional solutions for text-driven voice performances. Great audio support for Morph-based, lip-syncing animations.
Smooth Lip-sync Animation
Further adjust the smoothness and strength of lip animation. Work on full mouth, or down to individual parts like lips, tongue, or jaw. Linear transitions between lip shapes now become more natural after the new phoneme-pair design and lips smoothing features.
Puppeteering: Mouse Control over both 2D & 3D Actors
Simply use a mouse or handheld device to puppet your character's animations. With a Solo Feature Selection, you can design custom facial features and puppet behaviors while playing back recorded audio in real-time. The default puppet profiles define instant personalities for puppeteering, ranging from real human beings to cartoonish profiles. Furthermore, 6 emotion styles for each profile provide you with full control over various facial expressions.
Enhanced 3D Motion Key Editing
- Muscle – define different parts of the muscle to animate.
- Expression – create vivid expressions in no time by applying preset templates.
- Modify – customize further facial feature details all on your own.
For 3D avatars, you may endow them with unrestricted head and shoulder movements to liven up your animation results.
