WALLACE & GROMIT CHAT » THE LIP SYNCING TEST THREAD!
do you yuose helium frog
I do sometimes. It is my main one now though
Thats a mould thing for lip sync, marc spess talks about it on his site somewhere.
Ahh! Do you know what it is made of?
Some type of plastic, I'll try and get the link, I think its somewhere in this video: http://www.stopmotionmagic.com/videos/id_194/title_how-to-animate-puppets-dvd-teaser/
It might be resin. I want to make one but I don't know what to use for the mould and the lip-sync model.
All I use for lipsync is about twenty different mouths. I have mouths for:
And it goes on.
Can Chocaspazibunianby staff or anyone else who could help me with lipsincing because i have not done a animation with sound yet i was wondering how you get the software and use it. i've got mouth pieces script, models ect also i'am going to start recording soon though not sure what to do.
So first of all you've got the sound planned ( script) and the models. Good start. Now what you need to do is realise the mouth movement that were needed to make the sound. A good way to do this is to film the recording of the sound so you see the mouth shapes
A good piece of software is helium frog (it's free)- you can get this on http://www.stopmotionmagic.com/helium/ .
I believe with this you can sync it all very well like on Stopmotion pro ( an expensive piece of software).
Umm that's a quick thing of what my tips are and good luck!
Thank Ursrut. though what do you mean with your second bit ( about realise the mouth movement.And by the way i have got stopmotion pro already.
Basically, what i mean is, film the person saying the words on the script as well as record it that way you can match the movement of the lips with the sound of the word - realising the mouth movement
ok thanks Ursrut
Does anyone know how to use stop motion pro for the lip sincing also why are the photos you upload become very fuzzy
Speaking of Fuzzy a new pic is on the Fuzzy idiots site
tried to record but very quiet,why? On window movie maker.
Heres my first animation with sound. This just to test if the sound was working.
You have to export it from windows movie maker because no one can watch it.
does anyone know wallace mouths
The way it is done? Or the different shapes?
any photos of the ouths and what they are representing
Well yes there are a few online... Hold on 1 sec!
Sorry for bumping, but I don't think this thread should get sent down in the depths of the forum to parish (I mean perish, thanks Ian! ) .
Anyways, working on a lip sync test around ten seconds long... Can't wait to show it!
what parish? St. Mary's?
sorry couldn't resist the wordplay there, I believe you meant "perish."
But in all seriousness. what kind of lip sync you doing?
Oh dear, I've been dumbfounded by homophones.
I just went to the craft store today to pick up some plasticine. Got a good eight pounds of it. Also bought some wooden modelling tools.
Anyways, here's the model I am using, during this picture I think his mouth is sounding out "L":
looks good! Is it just a test or will there be an animation with this character?
And I just ROFL'd, I read homophones as homophobes
Thanks GLB! I will most likely just be using this little guy for a test. Actually, he was modeled off of this character: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuekBt4kCZw
And he actually did look exactly like him. But, for lip sync, I added the mouth, and I put bags underneath his eyes because it seemed relevant to the speech clip.
I'm gonna post a link to a Lip sync i did of one of my models tomorrow
And here is the finished test.
Have just finished my first test doing lip syncing and think it was ok but could improve it
so much dust on this thread,cough cough, where have i been? who knows, who cares, but none the less, any young aspiring animator who is new to the site best have a look into this thread, you may learn something.
This is the spazicat, disapearing into the mist once again................................. also the image is animated if you click on it btw.
haha spazicat that animations was awesome!
