CrazyTalk Creates Virtual Speaking Actors from Photos

CrazyTalk 4.5

CrazyTalk4 is a new software package that enables you to create virtual animated actors from digital photos, just like the virtual newscaster Ananova or Max Headroom of the 1980’s.

All you need is one picture – yours, your dog’s or your mother-in-law’s – plus recorded or imported sound and you’re set. CrazyTalk’s 3D photo morphing Facetrix technology will bring your digital face to life via a fitting process.

Once the image is bonded with CrazyTalk’s 3D head framework, your talking character is able to lip sync with any speech. It can even show facial expressions such as smiling, frowning, crying and laughing.

The speaking actors can then serve as virtual guides and digital hosts to your website or any other multimedia experience like movies, email, even cellphones.
