Dear Video Gods,
Does anybody here use CrazyTalk?
As a quick intro for those not familiar, CrazyTalk is Windows/Mac software that animates images of faces, and then makes them speak. It turns a static 2D photo or drawing in to a video with sound. Here's the sales pitch intro video for a quick look:
CrazyTalk is probably my favorite software other than Hitfilm, so I thought I'd start this thread to see if discussion of this tool would be useful to members of the forum. If this is of interest, please share your thoughts, experiences, suggestions etc.
(Please note: I have no business relationship with the company who created this software. I'm not even a customer yet technically, as they gave me my copy for free. I'm just a CrazyTalk fan boy, that's it.)
Once you have a general idea what CrazyTalk is all about, I wanted to seek your input on a hobby business idea. I'm considering setting up a little talking heads specialty shop.
As example, say you wanted to have a Donald Trump Darth Vader type character in your next sci-fi adventure film. You send me the image, and the script in text or audio form. I animate the image with the soundtrack and send it back to you. You do your thing with the clip in Hitfilm.
Please feel free to opine on this general idea in any direction. I've been around online business for over 20 years, but know very little about the video arena. Any and all advice of any kind will be most appreciated.
If the subject of CrazyTalk is of interest to anybody, tell me what you'd like to know more about and I'll assist if I can.
