How does Cartoon Animator 4 access the previous version DRM contents?

All CrazyTalk Animator contents are compatible with Cartoon Animator 4. There are two methods available and we recommend Method #1.

Method #1: -
The easiest way to bring in all your previous version CrazyTalk Animator content is to simply reinstall all your content packs (via Universal Installer) as this will directly add them into your Cartoon Animator 4 folders.
During content packs installation, simply check Cartoon Animator 4 for specified version.

Method #2: -
1) Manually copy all content from CrazyTalk Animator previous version to Cartoon Animator 4's corresponding location. Please DO NOT replace the files with the same name in order to avoid any version mismatch.

2) Since these digitally protected content were not installed using their original installers, nor downloaded from the BackStage, then they need to be re-verified for use in Cartoon Animator 4.
Please go to main menu, "Help" -> "Activate Entire Library", this will help you verify all your templates and custom content in a single go.

After clicking "Activate Entire Library", a confirmation dialog will pop up. Read the information carefully and click on "OK" to begin the verification process.

Please note that the verification requires an internet connection.
