Lip Sync
show user profile  3D-Dingo
Hey guys, long time no speaky.

I have been a bit quite on the old 3d front recently and i was gona try and give myself a challange.

How easy/hard is it to use lip syncing in max with a simple sphere mouth to say a rock song?
Is the easiest way morph targets? or is there some max script which can help.

Hope to hear from you soon

I like morph targets.
You can load the audio into the max scene and scrub back and forth (you can see the audio in the keyframe area). Just set your key frames to the sound and playback.

hope that helps

You'll be able to reuse shapes alot, so it won't be so bad. And you can reuse sets of keyframes for repeated lyrics for the chorus and such.
