I bought a new program this week at a good deal ($24.98). I now wish I would have gotten the Pro version, but was unwilling to part with the cash. It was a great deal though, and it has given me a lot of fun. It’s called Crazy Talk, and it makes regular portraits come alive. To make a picture become 3D (and then output it to video), you just have to drag some little dots to show where the facial features are–eyes, nose, mouth, and the outline of the face. You can also mask the background and replace it with another background or choose which part of the photo you want to be animated. There is a text to voice editor, but I don’t have but 3 options for voices. I’m sure I can find some voice profiles somewhere on the internet.
