I would like to do 1 of two things, but if both are possible I would like to learn how to do both.

1. As the title suggests, I would like to import a video to play as a background, and have my character talking with the background behind. Is this possible?
2. If not, is there a way to export a transparent background video, so I can use it as an overlay using other video editing software?
Thanks,

I figured out how to add a green screen background, and I was able to chrome key and take out the background, so that worked.

I still would like to know the answer if you can import a video, that would be even easier, but this way worked fine.

Unfortunately you can't import a video background into CrazyTalk 8. Only static images are supported as backgrounds.

Ok thanks; I didn't see a way, I can just see it saving 1 step if you creating an 'Overlay' type effect.

I can't be the first that asked for this feature am I?

I also wish the scene backgrounds that are included with Crazytalk were not purposely out of focus. That should be an option to show the bar or the bookshelf type scenes clearly, or let them blur to the background.

It isn't my name on the software, so I can only wish.

Thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the feedback. Video backgrounds are being considered and may be an option in future versions.

The blurred backgrounds is a design choice to give a DOF appearance. Of course for your own custom backgrounds you can choose to keep the background sharp and in focus if you prefer. Smile
