How to Create 3D Character Heads From Caricature Faces Using CrazyTalk 8

After creating my previous tutorial How to Create Cartoon Caricature Faces from Photos Using Krita , I wanted to create a complimentary tutorial showing how to rig those faces for animation in an application that is equally easy to learn simply by following a step by step guide. Reallusion's CrazyTalk 8 is a highly under rated application for creating talking head style animations. For example if you wanted to create an animated vlogger character CT8 will let you do that extremely quickly, with auto-animations, and auto lip sync. While it excels at animating 2D talking head characters (created from photos and your own artwork) one of its most unique features is the ability to create 3D Human style character heads from photos.

Real Human AI Text to Speech Voice App by Replica Studios - AI voice actors for games + films

Replica Studios TTS App. Image: Replica Studios It really pays to attend Reallusion's free animation demonstration Webinars. At a recent webinar, host, Kai DeNeve, featured Replica Studio's A.I. Voice Actor system . Replica uses Artificial Intelligence to learn a real voice actor's speech patterns, tone, and inflection, which can then be used with their Text To Speech (TTS) system to produce the most realistic computer generated voices yet (or at least that I've come across). You can even fine tune how individual words are said and more. Their TTS system works through a downloadable desktop app for Mac and Windows. There are also bridging apps if you want to use their system for voices in UnReal and Unity Gaming systems. Sign up for a free account and get 30 minutes of free voice downloads (that's 30 minutes of recorded audio - not 30 minutes to download audio - that you can download a line at a time). After that you can purchase 4 hour blocks for just USD$24.00.
