In this video, learn production issues to avoid and how to create lip sync when using prerecorded audio.
- You don't always have your voice actor in your studio, but luckily you can use prerecorded voices, with character animator. (upbeat tunes) In order to get the best lip sync possible from your prerecorded audio, you need to make sure that it's as clean and as loud as possible, without clipping. So, one of the things I like to do is when I take my audio clip, here's what it sounds like right now. - [Audio Clip] Joey, do you like movies about gladiators? - So, I'll take out any noise that's in there, first.
But, then I'll go under favorites, and I'll go to normalize to minus 3db, that brings the whole thing up, but keeps it from clipping. Now, let's listen again. - [Audio Clip] Joey, do you like movies about gladiators? - See, it's nice and clear, nice and loud. I'm going to make sure I save that file, and then we're going to bring that right into character animator. To get your audio in, you can simply just drag it into your project folder, over here. As you see, I have my prerecorded audio wave file, there. Or, you can go to file, and import, and just select your audio file.
Now, I'm going to grab my audio file. I'm going to drag it down into my scene. See it there, loaded up. Move in closer on it. There we go. Now, I'm going to select my puppet, the Bob 2D puppet. Make sure that's highlighted. Then I'm going to go to timeline, and I'm going to select compute lip sync from scene audio. That didn't take long. And, here we see lip sync underneath, and let's take a look and a listen. - [Audio Clip] Joey, do you like movies about gladiators? - And there we go.
It's that fast and easy. It's really easy to use prerecorded audio in your production. And, then to finish your animation, just disable the lip sync, and record all of your other actions. (upbeat tunes)
