After Macworld, began testing the trial version of the animation tool called CrazyTalk 7. Early on, I ran into a stumbling block that prevented the program from starting up using OS X 10.8.
After I entered my email address and password in the CrazyTalk login screen, I couldn’t proceed further and was greeted by a cryptic parameter error message.
I contacted the developer (Reallusion) via the company support page and waited for a reply. In the interim, I removed and reinstalled the software program a couple more times without success.
On a whim, I decided to see whether my Security & Privacy setting was preventing the application from launching normally. I opened the Security & Privacy pane in System Preferences, entered my admin password to release the lock, and changed the radio button to allow installation of applications downloaded from anywhere. After changing this System Preference setting, I was able to log in using OS X 10.8 and try out some of the basic functions contained in CrazyTalk’s animation tool.
