Hi, I'm new here; just to add to the point about the standard version being "crippled":
How annoying to find that Cut & Paste, features which you'd expect as standard in any self-respecting graphics editing software, are only available on the Timeline in the Pro version!! Which means that, unless there's another way around the problem, I have to enter all repetitive Timeline events individually! Sad
Also, the fact that an external editor should be needed to create substitutes for actors' body parts - but that's a lesser gripe.

Thank you for the feedback.

Unfortunately there has to be some differences between the Standard and Pro versions to compensate for the price difference. However we always make this clear in our version comparisons so the user knows which Pro features are not present in the Standard versions.

The CrazyTalk Animator comparison is below:

Crazy Talk Animator is a fun program to work with, getting even better with the upcoming version 2.

There are some great assets to use, if you have the dosh to spend. Though some of it seems to have jagged edges even with anti-alias on. I haven't made a movie to see whether that is still the case.

I have to agree with flatcap as well.

I bought CTA1 about a year ago, and also bought some training videos, and spend many weeks and couldn't figure out sqat about CTA1 so I gave up in frustration. I too find that the (paid for!) videos fly by at 100 miles and hour and skip most of what he is doing and only show the results, so I couldn't follow what he was doing or figure out anything. I just bought CTA2 thinking from what I had heard that it was vastly improved, but sadly, it is just as frustrating! The manual help files are useless to me, they seem to assume you are familiar with the program, and I can't figure out how to do the simplest of things at all! It is so frustrating. I use anime studio 9 pro successfully, as well as carrara 8 and daz studio, no problems.

For example, I am trying to figure out how to move a character's start position. Whenever I click on the character to move it, it moves the bounding box but not the character. I am at the first keyframe. Of course if I advance the playhead, it will move that character. But I am trying to reposition the character at the start. If someone could please explain to me how to do this, I would be grateful.

And of course I gave up trying to use my own content a long time ago, and I still can't figure out whatever steps are needed to do this.

I would appreciate it if reallusion would make help files or video tutorials that back off from the hyped sales pitch and "wow, aren't these features great" and make some help material that is of more use to anyone except psychics and polymaths.

Sorry if this offends. Just being honest.

I just purchased CTA2 and it's totally useless, someone said you need to have to wait for the upgrade! Well that's really sweet! Why put it out when it's not ready?
