The CrazyTalk Animator 3.2 update provides a total Photoshop PSD in-and-out solution to not only help 2D Animators, but also Graphic Designers
If you’re a Photoshop user looking to get into animating, or perhaps an animator who uses Photoshop for designing characters, CrazyTalk Animator is a software package that can provide a user-friendly interface and quality results. In the new 3.2 update though, CrazyTalk is even more in sync with Photoshop; export your character library, motion library and pose generation to Photoshop, and export your fast content design, graphics editing and image effects from Photoshop to CrazyTalk Animator!
With the CrazyTalk Animator 3.2 Pipeline, artists can convert 2D artworks to characters through PSD Templates. Now, it also allows graphic designers to quickly repurpose their content with new styles, colours, accessories, and poses. CrazyTalk enables you to launch Photoshop and synchronise updates on character layers, meaning that you can send props or characters to Photoshop for further custom editing. With this ability users can easily design clothes, alter colour shading, or apply filter effects to their animatable assets.
“I have been mulling around the idea of creating animated shorts for quite some time now,” says Kimberly Larmond, a designer and illustrator based in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. “However, I have been a bit reluctant to undertake this task in After Effects, as it seems monumental. I stumbled across CrazyTalk Animator 3, and I was flabbergasted!”
