What it does: Facial animation creator software with which you can take any photo and make it speak, smile and a host of other emotions.
+ Loads of features.
- A little hard to navigate.
+ Upload to YouTube straight from the programme.
Ease of use – Easy on the whole with the option to keep it simple in basic editing and effects, but with loads of features and configurations to play with if you are feeling more confident.
- Design – A little tough to navigate, but after a while you get the hang of.
Once installed, it was easy to start a new project either choosing my own photo, taking one with a web cam or using one from the programme itself.
Then there are a few step by step processes to crop, rotate, adjust the colour levels and mark the points which at movement will be centred around on the photo.
Once you have suitably adjusted the picture, you can make it talk through a text to speech function with the ability to adjust volume, pitch and speed; or you can record your own voice. Then you can adjust the emotion on the face and the lip sync key to make the character talk more naturally.
You can then share your creations in a full screen viewing on your computer, or upload to YouTube in HD from the programme itself.

Conclusion: An astonishing amount of features to play with creating great animations, all at a great price for the standard version.
