Ah, I see. Ok, thanks for that, a new horizon.
Would also suggest you start a thread on this topic in SketchUcation forum
Thanks for this suggestion. I’m generally aware of that site, but hadn’t gotten around to engaging there yet. Will check it out.
Not sure what I would do with a talking character but it would be interesting to see one.
Well, here’s a general philosophical point. Architecture is created to serve human beings. But the human component of Sketchup land is pretty lifeless. Thus, from an artistic perspective, one wonders what the point of the buildings are?
Anyway, to quickly illustrate a talking character, here’s a quick vid I made years ago when I was just getting started in all this.
I’ve since learned how to layer talking heads on top of moving characters in Hitfilm, which is rather more interesting.
Here’s another old one.
The above talking head videos were made in CrazyTalk, one of my favorite softwares. The above examples were made when I first began learning CrazyTalk and don’t really do justice to what the software is capable of.
I see CrazyTalk is currently selling for $50, but if you get on their mailing list and are patient you can get it for less, $30 or so. This is for the 2D version.
They have a 3D version at a higher price, but while I LOVE the 2D version, the 3D version didn’t seem ready for prime time. Best I can tell they’ve stopped developing it and have shifted focus to their other 3D products such as iClone.
