CrazyTalk for motion webcomics

A peek behind the scenes at the Reallusion / iClone 5 New York Comiccon booth. Slides, with embedded video. Very interesting. Here’s just a bit of one of the slides, gathering some of the comments on the live Kinect mo-cap demos the visitors could try out…

Also… a very interesting mention of “CrazyTalk Comic Templates from Justice for Hire, ready-to-animate”, based around a motion-webcomic competition. And talk of a possible future ‘CrazyTalk Motion Comic Creator’ edition(!). Want.

CeltX book/guide reviewed

As the free and open-source CeltX drafting / writing / story-boarding software surges toward version 3.0, it’s nice to see documention books appearing. Graham Higson of the Falmouth University M.A. Writing course has just posted a long review of the ebook version of the book Celtx: Open Source Screenwriting Beginner’s Guide.

It’s interesting to see it expanding from storyboards, since I last looked at it. Now it includes templates for comic books, and novels.
