Blabberize - Get your images talking

One of the best applications for making your face images talk is Reallusion's CrazyTalk. However if you don't want to buy such an advanced piece of software and just want to throw down a quick talking head to make someone smile then the online application, Blabberize, might be just what you're looking for.

Blabberize will get your images talking in more of an old style, ventriloquists dummy, kind of way by adding a lip-synced lower lip and chin to your face images. Not great for realism but perfect if you're going for comedic effect.

You can trial the service but won't be able to save your work until you create an account. It's free so you may as well. From there it's a simple five step process:
  1. Upload an image (front on images work best).
  2. Crop the area of the image you wish to use.
  3. Define one or more mouth areas.
  4. Record or Upload up to 30 seconds of audio.
  5. Preview and save.
 Once you have your video you can share the link or embed the animation anywhere that accepts HTML embed codes. You can also download your animation as an MPG video file which you can upload anywhere or import into video editing software as part of a bigger production.

You can see a sample Blabberize below that I created as I wrote this blog post.


The above is the MP3 version of my clip but, as mentioned, you can embed the animation directly from Blabberize's site for better image quality that looks exactly as you made it.

As you can see it's pretty basic. If that's all you need, it's a great way to animate faces without much effort.
