Turn Artwork into Animations, & Vice Versa

With the CrazyTalk Animator 3.2 Pipeline, artists can convert 2D artworks to animatable characters through PSD Templates. Now it also allows Graphic Designers everywhere to quickly repurpose their content with new styles, colors, accessories, and poses.

The new CTA 3.2 PSD export capabilities allow you to freely pose illustrated characters, quickly swap outfits & accessories, and create custom facial expressions prior to composing everything back in PSD design layers. 

All source sprites are exported for compositing and re-editing, allowing artists to save lots of time and effort when using PSD assets to generate comic creations, magazine covers, infographics, banner designs, and much more.

Quickly Create Animated Content

With the capability to launch Photoshop and synchronize updates on character layers, CrazyTalk Animator 3.2 can send props or characters to Photoshop for further custom editing. With this ability users can easily design clothes, alter color shading, or apply filter effects to their animatable assets.

Sending content to Photoshop with logically grouped character assets makes it easy to change skin color, add multiple image segment layers, and synchronously update animatable sprites once you save the file in PSD format. Users can quickly upgrade simple illustrations to sophisticated visuals like paper cutting, hash shading, or add highlights and shading effects to individual body parts.

Animated Accessory System 

Users can freely compose one or several accessories by using several prop items together and assigning pre-made animations which can later be triggered through the Right-click menu. The updated Accessory System also allows you to apply a chosen item directly to a target body part.

Generate a Whole Series of Characters

Once you setup one character, then you can quickly add new assets in Photoshop to generate abundant styles. These assets can be reused, as characters are free to pose and animate.

User Showcases - Digital Illustrator

"My name is Kimberly Larmond, a graphic designer and illustrator based in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. I have been mulling around the idea of creating animated shorts for quite some time now. 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!"
