CrazyTalk 5 live puppets

Reallusion recently unveiled CrazyTalk 5.0, a major update to its 3D character animation and lip-syncing application, adding support for non-human characters, enhanced facial meshes, and more. CrazyTalk 5.0 features real-time puppeteer control through the mouse or other input device, as well as five default puppet profiles, which can give the avatar a wicked, goofy, youthful, attractive, or grumpy demeanor. CrazyTalk 5.0 sells for $50, with a Pro version available for $150.

Users can customize textures on both teeth and eyes, and can add several cartoony effects, such as for comic captions and titling effects. Puppeteer control also gives users control over six emotion styles, with head orientation and tilt control, as well as robust camera control.

CrazyTalk 5.0 also adds 720p and 1080p high-definition resolution output, as well as Flash FLV and YouTube video format compatibility.

    but what is the connection to the Mac world? That you could play the result!

    "2) Does CrazyTalk provide a Mac version?

    CrazyTalk does not provide a Mac version. However, you can export to the general media formats such as AVI, RM, WMV to playback on Mac."

    No Mac version...

    But it can save you 15% or more on your auto insurance.

    Hey JACKASS...

    WTF!!! I get all Jazzed up over this, and watch all the Demos on the site, then I go and Purchase it, and I see There's NO MAC VERSION!!!

    Is this the MacNN or the WindowNN site. You should pull this down, it's an embarrassment to all of us that it's even listed here.

    Krap!!! What A Waist of my Time...

    c*** !!

    I thought this app was rocking too and was thinking about buying it.. Lucky i looked at the requirements. IF non MAc Software is going to be posted here, then why not put a section called " NON_MAC_SOFTWARE". I too get tired of seeing all this windows c*** listed with no mention its windows only until afte investigating myself.

    This is a disservice to the Mac community and appears to be lazy proofreading by someone.
