CrazyTalk Animator on the Ultrabook Touch

Want to get all touchie-feelie with your cute lil’ toon characters? You’re a perv in luck. CrazyTalk Animator has reportedly been optimised to work with the touch features in Intel’s Ultrabook touch (a neat-looking PC laptop/tablet hybrid)…

“Reallusion had early access to develop on the Ultrabook and the company was able to kick-off development of CrazyTalk Animator for the touch capabilities of Ultrabook. “After you’ve created your character from a photograph, you can now work on the emotion using touch. It’s a lot like digital puppeteering. You can animate everything based on touch.”

Remixes legal in the USA

Possibly spurred by Reallusion’s new dance video competition (maybe…), the U.S. Copyright Office has this week announced some new exceptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act…

“the [U.S.] Copyright Office ruled that it is legal to use music or clips from copyright media for personal or educational use.”

Your groovy remixes are apparently now safe until 2015. Let’s hope that someone tells that to the YouTube music-wiping auto-bot…
