Hi,

Y.day I bought Crazytalk 8 standard. I have imported image and done all the settings for talking image.
but during talk, when eyes/mouth expression happens, background image also animating..
I tried face fitting wire frames to fit within the image,  but still background image is animating.
how to stop background around image head stop animating?.

Thanks,
Parthoo

For best results you should remove the background from the character image. I prefer to do this in Photoshop (or any other image editor) save it in a format that preserves a transparent background like PNG. You can also do this within CrazyTalk 8 itself (see below) but you may find it easier in an image editor.

I tried mask editor in CrazyTalk 8, it works. but i want to keep my background image as it is for realistic look.
Is there any other workaround ?.
Also , how demo talking avatars and content store , do not have this issue?.

You can still use the original image as the background if you wish. Just copy the original image and then use an image editor to remove the character from the scene in the copy. Then load this as the background.  You should be able to find many YouTube tutorials on removing objects from photos. 

Alternatively, make a copy of the original image and then reduce it slightly in size. Then when you place it as a background it CrazyTalk your foreground talking character will hide the smaller character in the background image. 

Also , how demo talking avatars and content store , do not have this issue?.


Because all the demo characters have had the background removed as I advised previously.
