Effect3D 1.0- ZDNET 5 STAR AWARD

Ziff Davis Publishing has reviewed and awarded Effect3D five out of five "stars" on its ZDNet.com web site. Reallusion's Effect3D lets users of all skill levels produce professional-quality animated 3D objects in a matter of minutes, complete with animation and super cool 3D effects. Effect3D's slick wizard-based interface takes care of all the hard work, and its library of over 500 images and templates gives you plenty of room to let your creativity run wild. Just open a project, select an object, choose an effect, set the effect's parameters, pick a background, adjust the lighting and environment settings, select an animation, and you're ready to export your creation as an animated or static .gif file or a .bmp or .jpg file.

CrazyTalk
Reallusion Product Upgrade Released
 

Reallusion has released an upgrade to CrazyTalk 1.0, our photo-animation software that allows any digital photograph to speak for itself (click here if you are unfamiliar with this product!) Imagine being able to animate ANY digital photo to bring your subjects to life! CrazyTalk is an easy-to-use piece of software that makes any picture "talk" by transforming text into synthesized voice messages, complete with synchronized lip movements and dozens of facial expressions. CrazyTalk can then save your animated message as an .exe file to share with others without the recipient needing to have any additional software!

If you have previously purchased version 1.0, you can upgrade FOR FREE to version 1.01 by clicking here. Version 1.01 improves CrazyTalk with the following added features and functions:
íP ADPCM Audio quality selection
íP TTS only output option
íP New export options (avi, bmp, wav)
íP Image size/quality selection
íP Cancel button during export media
íP More hotkeys

In addition, there is no need for a 'stand alone player' with version 1.01! Join more than 50,000 other users in giving life to your digital photos! But don't just take our word for it. Arthur Mrozowski, President of Media Galleries of Aptos, CA wrote us: "As a developer of interactive multimedia titles, I use a variety of professional tools to create titles containing animations and interactive content to improve the user experience. I have never before come across a product that is so easy to use and yet produces such professional results! My hat is off to your development team!"
