Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding expressions to the animation, part of Rigging a Face in Flash Professional.
In the previous movie, we took a simple short line of dialog, and we arranged…the mouth shapes so that we brought this thing to life and made it speak.…(character speaking: I'm happy! But now I'm mad!) Great!…So now the next step, obviously, is to place that inside the face.…So let's go into our Library panel and see how we do that.…And the best way will be to pick our facial acting rig, right-click, Duplicate…this, and we'll call it facial acting dialog, and that will match our mt A…dialog symbol that we've made our dialog in. So click OK to that, and there it appears.…
Let's double-click on that in the Timeline, in the Library I am in, and now…let's make a few little fixes here to line these up.…What we need to have happen is to have the timeline of the face perfectly match…the timeline of the mouth.…So let's double-click on the mouth now that we see it next to the face, and…that's the wrong mouth, so let's go back out again.…I am going to go back into the Library. Happens a lot this, so bear with me.…
