Alex lip-sync animation test

This is my first attempt a lip-syncing a character to the dialog by manually keyframing and tweening. It took a couple hours to match the vocals to the mouth movement.  The voice is from a sample from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

  1. Wow! Very nice! It reminded me of my conversation with Paarthurnax in Skyrim. I always thought that lip-syncing an animated character with a sound file would be incredibly difficult and time-consuming. And then you have to change his facial expression based on the content of his dialog…. Only two hours seems quite reasonable.
