Exporting the character as a video or an image
Step 1: Importing an image and fitting a face profile
The first step is to import an image that you want to use as the source for your character. You can use any image format that is supported by CrazyTalk 6 Pro, such as JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, TGA, etc. You can also import 3D models in OBJ or iClone format. To import an image, click on the Import Image button on the toolbar and browse for the image file on your computer. Alternatively, you can drag and drop the image file into the CrazyTalk 6 Pro window.
Once you have imported an image, you need to fit a face profile to it. A face profile is a template that defines the shape and position of the facial features on the image. CrazyTalk 6 Pro provides several face profiles for different types of faces, such as human, animal, cartoon, etc. You can also create your own face profiles using the Face Profile Editor. To fit a face profile to your image, click on the Face Fitting button on the toolbar and select a face profile from the list. You can also use the Auto Fit option to let CrazyTalk 6 Pro automatically choose the best face profile for your image.
After you have selected a face profile, you need to adjust it to match the facial features on your image. You can use the mouse to drag and resize the face profile points on the image. You can also use the Face Fitting panel on the right side of the window to fine-tune the face profile parameters, such as eye size, nose length, mouth width, etc. You can also rotate or flip the face profile if needed. The goal is to make sure that the face profile points align with the facial features on your image as closely as possible.
When you are satisfied with the face fitting result, click on the Apply button to confirm it. You will see a preview of your character in 3D on the left side of the window. You can use the mouse to rotate or zoom in/out of your character. You can also click on the Play button to see how your character moves and blinks.
Step 2: Adjusting the facial features and adding accessories
The next step is to adjust the facial features of your character and add accessories if you want. You can use the Facial Feature panel on the right side of the window to modify various aspects of your character's face, such as skin tone, eye color, hair style, beard style, etc. You can also use sliders to change the shape and size of different facial parts, such as forehead, cheekbones, chin, etc.
To add accessories to your character, click on the Content Manager button on the toolbar and select Accessories from the menu. You will see a list of categories of accessories that you can choose from, such as glasses, hats, earrings, etc. To apply an accessory to your character, simply drag and drop it onto your character's face. You can also use the mouse to adjust its position and size.
You can also import your own accessories from external files in JPG or PNG format. To 061ffe29dd
