Crazy Talk from Reallusion has long been a popular facial animation app on Windows PCs. With the release of version 7, Crazy Talk is now also available for the Mac.
Crazy Talk 7
Crazy Talk lets you create animated characters from original images or photos you import, and auto lip-sync voices from text or audio files. You can have your pets talking to you in a matter of minutes.
Creating a character is as easy as importing an image and letting Crazy Talk automatically fit a wire frame model to the image. You can also add, change, and customize eyes, teeth, and other facial components. Add an audio track or text for the character to speak, and you have a fully functional character.
New features in Crazy Talk 7 include smart animation for face puppeteering, muscle-based motion control, timeline editing, and layering.
Crazy Talk is easy enough for first-time animators to use, and full-featured enough for pros who need to quickly create characters and storylines.
Crazy Talk 7 is $29.99.
