Hi,

I am creating a video where I need to keep my Character to the left of video, I am able to move the Character with no problem but when I play the video the Character keeps moving back to the middle of the screen, is there a way of locking the Character in place?

Thanks

All you need to do is ensure you position your character at Frame 1 of the project. If you move your character at any frame other than 1 you will be setting transform keys and the character will move position. Try starting a new project, load your character, and then position the character on the left side ensuring you do this at Frame 1 of the project. Then when you play the project the character will stay on the left side.

Ok I will try that, if Reallusion could create a locking option on the next update it would be very helpful Thanks, + How can I have a transparent background in crazy talk 8? I have some other video software that I would like to use for a project but I need a transparent background. 

Thanks

Just remove the background from the character image first. I like to do this in Photoshop (or any other image editor will do) and then 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 and more precise in an image editor.

Then export as Sequence Image PNG format if you are using Windows or use the ProRes 4444 codec if you are using the Mac version.
