Prop Dynamics

and SFX

Give Life to Props - Elastic Motion System

  • Drag a motion effect to your prop and you will see your image, logo, or text instantly animated.
  • Define how your prop gets into the stage, loop and emphasize to catch your audience's attention, and how the prop finally leaves the screen.
  • Further customize your own Elastic Motion Effects such as; making a prop bounce heavier, or adding turns when it pops-in.

The Making of Elastic Motion Effects

By combing FFD (Free Form Deformation), Transformation, Motion Curve, and Opacity Level you can fine-tune their parametric values to get your ideal dynamic behaviors.


CREATE INTERACTIVE COMPOUND PROP ANIMATIONS
Use the Prop Composer to Easily Build Multi-parts Animated Props
  • Combine parts or sprites into one single prop for quick editing.
  • Organize prop sprites with child-parent hierarchy and arrange their layer orders.
  • Assign each sprite part with unique animations, and sequence their playback time.

Reuse Animation Patterns

Completely different concepts can be easily achieved by replacing the sprite elements from other animated props.

Custom Interactive Action Menu

You can custom create your own prop Action Menu by adding new animation elements to the selected prop. In this case, you can use the menu to open the car door, make the siren flash, or make the wheels roll.


Use the Action Menu Editor to add, delete, and arrange the order of your animation list.

Props & SFX Links
  • Set props that link and unlink to any object or actor, i.e. pick up an object in frame A and drop it in frame B.
  • Link SFX to your character or prop to create emotives or disguised effects.

Multi Layers & Visual Effects
  • A Scene is a combination of image layers, props, and background images.
  • In CrazyTalk Animator, you can group layers together and exchange items in scenes with just one click. You may also group and ungroup data during single item editing.
  • Image layers in the foreground can be used to decorate a scene, add watermarks, tiles or headline frames.
  • Simulate lighting effects by using transparent layers to create god rays or spotlight effects.
