Read my lips, well don’t look too closely…

I’m testing out some software from Digital Curiosity. I’ve got a new Star Wars animation that I’m working on and I’m going to be doing it all by myself. This software is supposed to automate the process of lip syncing. I don’t think that it does a perfect job, but it’s pretty good. I didn’t change or adjust the animation, this is the way that it came out of the software. Now to clarify a bit, I drew the character and then had to draw every mouth shape. I saved each mouth shape as it’s own drawing and then the software translates the wave file and assigns a mouth shape to a sound. The audio is me from an old project that was never funded.

*NOTE* I have hosted the video on a site called Revver. You may notice a pop-up box on the bottom of the video and then another ad on the end. It is through this advertising that they can provide their video hosting service and compensate their contributors.
