NEW! Instantly Copy-Paste PNG & Animated GIF

Have you ever wished to quickly place your animations into presentations, web pages, emails and other popular applications? Well, with this new update you can easily copy-paste your animations straight from the main window to any other application.

  • No matter it's an image or an animation, you simply need to select your target objects, press the capture key, F7 for PNG and F8 for animated GIF, and then paste(Ctrl-V) to your daily applications.
  • The practical, transparent background option gives you seamless pasted results every time.
  • You can also further customize the output quality, animation range, looping option and frame rate.


IMPROVED! Enhanced Render Style Panel

Color Adjustment for Image-based Sprites
  • Previously in CrazyTalk Animator, you could only adjust the color of vector-based items, but now you can adjust the color for image-based items as well. It works both for props or character elements.
  • You can directly access the Render Style panel without the need to get into the Composer mode.
Color Toning
  • Instead of adjusting vectors and image elements separately, users can now select multiple elements to update them all at once!
  • You can copy the render style from the selected items and apply them to other items.
Line Width Adjustment
  • No matter if you zoom in/out on a character or scale any body part, you are now free to decide the line width for selected objects.
  • The Line width adjustment is not only for emphasizing characters and props, but it can also be used to edit speech bubbles for a more unique look in different scenarios.


NEW! Dynamic Text Bubbles

  • The text bubbles are now dynamic. In CrazyTalk Animator 2, you can have multiple text changes, in the same bubble, for an awesome dialog.
  • You can assign different text styles to each text along with font, size, color, italics, etc. You can also re-edit them at anytime.
  • Set a Timeline key for your text for precise timing control.

IMPROVED! Empowered Motion Clip Blending

  • With the newly enhanced motion blending function, now you can smoothly combine two motion clips with, a blending range and motion curve, for both 2D and 3D tracks.
  • The same blending feature can help smooth out angle changes when combining two motion clips with different angles.
  • It also makes pose-to-pose animation creation easier and much more controllable.


IMPROVED! Enhancement Over Character Composer

Mirror an Entire Body or a Single Part
In CrazyTalk Animator 2, a mirror function is added for our users to greatly speed up the character creation process. Once they complete one side of the actor sprites, then they can simply click the Mirror button for all adjacent parts to automatically update on the other side.
The Mirror function does just apply to an actor, but it can also be applied to single parts when mirroring poses, and angle settings from left eye to right eye.
This function can mirror over bone transformations, pivot points, and joint mask settings.
Simplified Vector Grouping Tool
Have you wondered how CrazyTalk Animator can change colors by within selected name groups such as; upper, lower, and hair? Well, by using the vector grouping tool you can modify your character or prop with the same render style option, and easily adjust the color tone in one go.
In this new update, grouping vector shapes to named parts is no longer a complicated process. Simply check the “Select Same Color” option when you click on a vector item, and all vector shapes made with the same color will be selected. Then you can assign the same Group Name to them.
Instancing With Transformation
The biggest effort when creating a custom character is usually when generating sprites for facial expressions. Now, instead of drawing individual sprites to complete elements like eyebrows, users can simply apply the same instance to all gesture slots. They can rotate, move or scale individual sprites to generate all kinds expressions.
Using transformation instancing, once you changed the original source sprite, you can have all the instanced shapes updated while keeping their transformation offset value.
The same method can be applied during a pose generation procedure for eyes and mouth.
Universal Pose Transformation
In some cases you may wish to generate a new set of expressions based on the original sprite setting, or may want to just fine-tune custom settings by tweaking transformations.
Applying the transformed results to other sprites in the library is now easy. Simply check “All Post Transform” and have all modifications including; move rotate, and scale, automatically updated to the entire sprite library.
