Puppet Shorts makes the magic of character-animation accessible to all, using a brand-new approach: Multitrack Puppeteering.
Users capture a background photo using the devices camera and then record a short line of dialogue, which becomes the soundtrack to their movie.
Choose a puppet-character and start animating! Lip sync is automated, but the user creates all of the other actions for the puppets torso, head and facial features by puppeteering one feature at a time.
A simple input region is uniquely and optimally targeted to each of the 15 animatable channels of the puppet, from head-movement, to eyebrows, to blink, to emotion.
Quickly create short quirky movies and share them with your friends.
