It can't be found. It was for original purchasers of a program called People Putty and that company who created it is out of business.

A few people still own their original version which they originally paid for but it can't be bought any longer. Sorry!

In the world of AI it's the thought that counts!

The people Putty Program does not seem to be available any more;
There was a release of the source code for the Haptek Player! Which does need to be recompiled to work on Windows 10. Any products you use with the ActiveX control (needs to run as Administrator) .

There is a file with all the skins etc inside it as it was shared by myself and another member of the forum many years ago.
By creating the skins its possible to wrap the skin around "most body's/heads" utilizing the people putty program.
The problem with the haptek was the charges were actually too high-(higher than the market could bear) .... today the price would be valid .

I was able to reverse engineer the product by focus-ing on a 3d Wire-frame model as a base displayed in a picture-box with a skin wrapped around!.

As well as reverse engineering Microsofts Agent  (Which is a series of GIFS) as i had made an agent for the knight rider char before also .
that was much easier; as a collection of animations stored in the resources and displayed in a transparent picture-box, (with speech balloon Tag-Popup).

Today we have Adobe Animator and Cartoon Studio as well as reface ... these tools also enable for the development of lifelike characters in an animation rig for creating the GIF required.

you can message me offline to grab a copy of the haptek if in need!
