Bad News for Voiceovers?

Posted on:
My attention has been drawn to a recent presentation, made at the Adobe MAX 2016 conference in San Diego, which I believe has major implications for those of us working as voice overs and those thinking of getting into voice work. Xeyu Jin took to the stage to demonstrate the new VoCo software.  Apparently once the software has been able to analyse up to 20 minutes of dialogue it... read more »
