Rating What's Hot:
There is an assortment of models
such as people, animals, cartoons, objects, and paintings to get you started and inspire you to get your own. After my first session with CrazyTalk 4.5, I found myself walking around Chicago with my camera, looking for full-frontal faces of any kind to bring home to new projects.
In addition to the usual graphics apps features for changing brightness, contrast, and color levels, there are facial objects
to pick, such as teeth and eyes. Don't stop at just a selection of teeth. Use the image manipulation options to make them the right intensity for the selected model. Then select happy, sad, mad, fun, or other facial expressions.
Use the background
mask editor to highlight the portion of the image you want transparent and bring in your own background image. Use a video frame snapshot to have the CrazyTalk clip blend into your movie project.Audio
features let you change the text and let the model read your customized words with a text to speech converter from Microsoft. Add background audio (think music) and change the relative volume of the reading and music. Use the audio recording feature to capture from your microphone or sound card.

include a wide array of options: instant messengers, greeting cards, website pages, video clips and mobile devices such as cell phones. For video files, you can save to AVI, RM, WMV, still image sequences, animated GIFs, and audio WAV files.What's Not:
The text to speech editor, the background audio, and the audio recorder are limited to 30 second files when using the CrazyTalk 4.5 trial version. The full version supports much longer audio tracks.
The recorder saves files as mono, even those being saved from the stereo mix option of the sound card.
Output options don't easily support making widescreen 16:9 clips for use in a video project.
