Why is CrazyTalk Animator Unique?

2D cartoon animation is used by almost all design teams in every professional art studio. Usually animators need to have enough skills to draw characters from scratch. They also need to be experienced in keyframe animation, motion logic and other crucial aesthetic concepts. Reallusion’s CrazyTalk Animator now changes the way you work with 2D Animation, with its innovative character generation and puppet control. Creating 2D animation has never been this quick and fun as now literally anyone can animate – with amazingly good results every time!

CrazyTalk Animator, the next-level of 2D Animation, focuses on total animation production with actors, props, scenes, camera and a complete time-line for precision animation.  Anyone with the ambition to make their own custom cartoons, e-learning media, short-films or commercials can create studio-level animation with CrazyTalk Animator.

CrazyTalk Animator is the seventh version of Reallusion’s award-winning 2D facial animation technology with a tenth-anniversary mega upgrade offering total 2D actor puppeteering and unparalleled automatic lip-syncing. The real difference with CrazyTalk Animator and previous versions of CrazyTalk is you get full characters with a talking head and full-body motion, plus full interactive staging for props and scenes.

CrazyTalk Animator enables you to combine your actors on the stage with props, special effects, text and scenery to set up your scenes and record all the action with the live camera. Ultimate precision editing and animation is provided by CrazyTalk Animator’s timeline with deep access to every character and prop in the scene.
