CrazyTalk Animator 3 literally caters to all skill levels of 2D animator from the complete beginner with no drawing skills whatsoever to the power user who loves nothing better than to bring their own original artwork to life with the least amount of effort.
The focus of the Animation@Work competition is creating animations for a work/professional environment but that doesn't mean hobby animators can't enter. The idea is to showcase how CrazyTalk Animator 3 can be used in specific work situations. There are three categories;
The most obvious use of animation in a work environment, business explainer videos are being embraced by organisations large and small. Your animation doesn't have to promote a real product or service but if that's how you use CrazyTalk Animator I'm sure Reallusion would love to showcase your animated video.
This category is for those of you that create your own original characters and bring them to life through animation. It's not necessarily, literally talking comic book style characters but if you are a cartoonist and have always wanted to see your characters animated then this is the category for you. Animate your characters doing something funny and you're bound to be noticed.
Do you have a YouTube Channel with more than 1000 plus subscribers? If you do then this is the category for you. Animation and YouTube has a long history with independent animators (if 12 years can be considered long?). CrazyTalk Animator 3 makes it possible to include animated content right in your videos without the long production times. Animation is known to be very engaging with any audience so adding it to your videos is really a no brainer. Create your own cast of characters and start animating.
