    Hello everyone I am a daz user and been one since 2008. I stopped using daz for animation way back in 2010 switched to Poser but still used Daz models and props. I later moved on from poser to Iclone in 2014 and been with the program ever since . I still am faithfull to daz products and i am a subcriber to plat-club.I only use daz for charcater creation now. I use Iclone,Unreal engine, Blender, and motionbuilder. I do daily Live streams on my channel on youtube you are welcome to come and see how i make all my films.

    a Facebook friend asked me about this

    https://www.daz3d.com/d-talks--realtime-talking-chatbot-for-daz-characters

    as if I would know blush

    not something I would use I think but maybe others would?

    I disabled Cortana and Siri and never would buy Alexa etc so not about to chat to my DAZ Avatars wink

    because I do animations I guess he assumed I would but they are actors they follow scripts

    ( well what I say with Screaming Bee or type into Balabolka)

    I don't want the blighters adlibbing on me devil

    that's how Skynet gets ideas

    I'm far from impressed. You render 23 frames of pre-set animation, then the chatbot mixes and matches the eye and mouth shapes. The "animation" is basically stop-motion, and doesn't even appear to follow the speech all that well. I think even the worst of the available options for lip syncing in DS gives better results than the demo video shows.

    yeah I was just looking at the interactive aspect of "talking" to it, I could use Mimic Live with Cortana if I was so inclined

    Hi friends, thank you for the comments. D-Talks is just the beginning of what we will offer shortly. We are already working on several updates to add more animations and expressions to the avatars. Everyone will also be able to add and edit the content of the chatbot. For now, we want to listen to the community and check what the most wanted features we can add to the software are, both regarding the Avatar and the AI content.

    I love the idea of embedded AI. I hope this means nothing is being sent to you (text, audio, etc.). It's one thing to play around with something like this for fun. It's a completely other thing if my fun is being recorded, shared or broadcast to someone without me knowing.

    As far as the renders go, would the resulting animations be better if they were toons? Animated cartoon versions of a character I created hooked into an AI.

    The price point is just a little too steep for what the demo shows. Now if it was a completly smooth animated character (head motions, hair movement..), I'd be all in.

    I heard about those phone apps with AI friends but I don't trust phone apps for that. I know they're just recording my data, analyzing it for ads and selling it off.

    I just had a conversation with a bot cheeky https://beta.openai.com/playground

    JaguarElla is an anthropomorphic furry, what foods would be suitable for me to offer her for dinner?

    Some anthropomorphic furries might enjoy a dinner of roasted meats and vegetables, while others might prefer a vegetarian meal. If you are not sure what your furry friend would prefer, you can ask her directly or look for clues in her fursona's diet. For example, if her fursona is a lion, she might enjoy a hearty steak dinner. If her fursona is a rabbit, she might prefer a lighter meal of salad and vegetables.

    I am concerned she might eat me because she is an apex predator.

    If you are concerned that your furry friend might eat you, it is probably best to avoid offering her any food.

    but if she is hungry I might look more appetising to her.

    If you are worried that your furry friend might be hungry and might see you as a potential meal, it is probably best to avoid offering her any food.

    the Open AI chatbot is pay for use too BTW, you get a limited amount of use free

    like their other products such as Dall-E 2

    I asume what you are paying for with the product in store is usage of the TTS voices ( those can have very dear licensing especially for Youtube usage so that alone justifies it) and the fact you are getting access to a hopefully secure ai chatbot

    otherwise the product is not actually for use inside DAZ studio, it is a series of renders to use in it's own interface

    you can see examples of this type  of thing on many Reddit narration videos with a talking Avatar and VTubers livestreams mostly using 2D drawings

    I need to figure out what to do about her clothing, because it's not simulating properly, her body keeps clipping through it, and at one point her pants slide down revealing her entire butt. Still, this is where I'm at on this self-imposed nightmare of a shot.

  • GordigGordig Posts: 7,306

    This shot came together much more quickly than the last, despite being more complex in a number of ways. Now I need to tweak the previous scene and re-render it before I can stitch everything together.

    I re-rendered the previous shot after learning some important lessons that I should have learned earlier, improving a lot of geometry, fixing her clothing, redoing the lighting.....

    Looking good! I think the characters move very well.
