Different ways of animating lip sync

Started this discussion. Last reply by The Great Pumpkin Dec 7, 2012. 1 Reply

This has no doubt been brought up before, but not in the forum as far as I can see. So,I think it was Nick Park who said that mouth movements make up only 15% of a character's expressions. But it is…Continue

Different ways of animating lip sync

This has no doubt been brought up before, but not in the forum as far as I can see. So,I think it was Nick Park who said that mouth movements make up only 15% of a character's expressions.
