In this episode of the Game Dev Show, Adam Tuliper (Microsoft) and James Martin (MobaCap & Reallusion Trainer) talk about the indie budget tools CrazyTalk 8 and iClone to create 2D and 3D facial animations. Adam becomes the test subject and James takes liberties with Adam's funny and 'zombified' 3D model.

Find them both on Twitter: @mobacap and @AdamTuliper

    crazy talk 8... amazing software, I was looking at there animation creating stuff, but this is just so cool.. Thanks .. can't we re-activate the licence once the trial version expires?

    @neetukhatra:You'd have to wait until the a new version were to release for a new trial to be activated. Otherwise, full version for 30 days, then only a full version will revive the tool-set. Well worth the price for the full version considering the speed and level of detail. A lot of BANG for your buck, for both 2D and 3D!
