Paying Lip Service

As promised, here is a video tutorial on how we do lip sync for the series. It shows how easy using Papagayo (the freeware phoneme generating software) is and how quick and fast it is to incorporate this into Anime Studio.

One thing to note: Vimeo is notorious about having audio sync issues, so if the lip sync looks "off" to you when playing this file I would suggest downloading it and playing it on your own machine to see that it is indeed correct. But the good news about lip sync is that you can easily adjust it yourself (in your own files) to be whatever you want it to be in terms of timing.

Next week I'm planning on doing a tutorial to demonstrate some of the principles of Richard Williams superb animation book "The Animator's Survival Kit" as they are applied inside of Anime Studio. If you don't have this book already you must get it -- it's that important a tool to the budding animator. Here's a link to it:
