New York, NY (PRWEB) July 27, 2010
Reallusion, Inc., an award-winning developer of video creation software for real-time 3D animation, takes center stage this week at SIGGRAPH inside the Intel Visual Adrenaline booth where show-goers can experience Authentic Stereo 3D powered by Intel's advanced 2010 family of Core processors.
iClone 4 and CrazyTalk 6 add the new 3D Stereo video export capability to create Authentic 3D stereo output. The result transforms any desktop studio into a miniaturized James Cameron media lab where user-created digital actors come to life in eye-popping 3D.
"Reallusion software and Intel Core i technology get regular folk past the humdrum often tedious parts of character creation and setup straight into the fun of animating," said Steve Pitzel, Host Intel Software Network TV (ISNTV), "Digital Arts."
"Whether you are an industry veteran, gamer, a student or boutique studio, Stereo 3D is the next frontier for entertainment, with massive manufacturer support enabling Stereo 3D into most next-gen hardware," added John C. Martin, VP Product Marketing, Reallusion. "With the launch of this product, stereoscopic 3D is set free. No longer the sole domain of Hollywood directors with 200 million-dollar budgets, Reallusion's iClone and CrazyTalk, enhanced with Stereo 3D capability, greenlight everyone who dreams of making their own 'AVATAR.' We give 3D content creation to the masses."
CrazyTalk transforms any 2D digital portrait into a real-time 3D animation. The popular animation creator places the power of puppetry in the palm of the filmmaker's hands. Crazy Talk 6 adds multiple actor animation, a new dynamic Vivid-Eye editor, and a camera to move & film all speaking characters.
