CrazyTalk7 Pro: Create Stellar Animations On Your Mac

CrazyTalk7 Pro: Create Stellar Animations On Your Mac | Technology in Art And Education |


We know making your dog talk with your own voice is entertaining and will get everyone laughing hysterically. With CrazyTalk 7 Pro you can take pets, sketch drawings, baby photos or inanimate objects to create fun and interesting videos in minutes.

You can communicate in a fresh way with visual messages, animated holiday greetings, or lively presentations that grab everyone’s attention. Upload your creation to the CrazyTalk app to share and animate on popular iDevices.


“Thank goodness CrazyTalk for Mac has been released. Now I don’t have to restart my mac into bootcamp. CrazyTalk has been the best tool for Facial animation on Jimmy Kimmel live for years for the simple reason: the script can always change at the last minute. CrazyTalk keeps up!” – Jesse Griffith, Animator – Jimmy Kimmel Live, ABCTelevision Group

“I LOVE the new CrazyTalk for Mac! It has finally arrived on the right platform for creatives to explore the boundaries of their imagination. CrazyTalk7 is an elegant and sophisticated facial animation app that will quickly become the secret weapon of animators and storytellers. Finally after a LONG wait CrazyTalk is available for the Mac!” – Eric Rosner, Illustrator


CrazyTalk7 is the most popular facial animation tool that uses sound and text to vividly animate facial images.

With this groundbreaking Auto Motion technology, you just need to import images, specify the facial feature points and record your own voice to automatically generate lip-syncs to create 3D life-like, talking videos.

This computer animation program not only looks like a whole lot of fun, but it would serve as an excellent tool for helping integrate the Design and Technology Curriculum with many Key Learning Areas within the classroom. For example, students may be required to write a report about a particular historical figure for History, or an inventor for Science. Instead of delivering this as an old-fashioned Word document, students could input their report into CrazyTalk and specifically design a character to look like their figure, who would then be able to recite the child's speech for the whole class. Using this program (or indeed any similar voice/animation software or app) would provide students with an opportunity to practise creative thinking skills as well as critical design experience, as they would have to manipulate the character's appearance, sound and so forth to meet the brief for their task.

PowerPoint, Keynote, and Skyrocket can create some great visual aids.  Sadly, many presenters have never been taught the principles of presentation slide design.

Generally, the best answer is NO ANIMATIONS.  And almost never any of the sound effects.  More on this on Monday...
