I made a quick self portrait in ArtRage to test out my newly purchased piece of software -- CrazyTalk 5.1.
- Opened CrazyTalk.
- Imported the painting.
- Placed the Mouth, Eyes, and Nose points.
- Masked out the background with a single click.
- Recorded a voice track.
- Chose an emotion.
The entire process took less than five minutes. And the little 30 second vid below is just the tip of the iceberg. There's so much more I can do with the software.
Suffice to say that I'll be finding a way to incorporate this into my visual facilitation practice.
The little speech bubble containing the link to my visual facilitation portfolio online is something new to YouTube -- video annotations. You can place them wherever you want in a video. Also amazing. Very useful. Makes YouTube a very good teaching tool.
