Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating vowel phonemes: O, U, and Y, part of Learning Character Animation.
…Let's take a look at a few more vowels. We're going to look at O, Ooh, U and Y.…And these are all kind of in the…same family, so they'll be animated fairly similarly.…So let's just take a quick look at these.…>> I'm going to start with O, so let's go ahead and play this.…>> Oh.…>> As you can see its similar to most vowels in that it opens…pretty wide, and is louder at the beginning and then gets softer at the end.…So, lets go ahead and…start by going a few frames before the…sound starts and locking in a neutral pose.…
Then,…>> going to probably the first major frame of…the phoneme, and then starting with the first pose.…So I'm going to go ahead and open the mouth, and get more of a round shape.…So it's, oh.…And it'll end kind of more of an oo-ish pursed lip…sound, but it's going to open with a wider mouth.…So I'm going to go ahead and select that and set a key.…So now…>> So as it closes down, it goes into more of an ooh kind of shape.…So I'm going to go ahead and close the jaw, but keep the lips fairly round.…
