Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the rig with audio, part of Rigging a Face in Flash Professional.
Now we are going to finally bring speech to our character.…So what I have done is created a couple of very short lines. They are in the…Library in a new folder called audio in your 06_03 exercise files.…So we have a happy line dialog.…(character speaking: I'm happy!) And an angry one.…(character speaking: But now I'm mad!)…Okay, so it's not exactly Shakespeare, but it will work.…So let's make a new symbol to house the animation that we are going to do.…We are going to base this on the dialog first.…
So let's go into the mt A folder, or symbol, right-click on that, click…Duplicate, and we will call this mt A dialog.…And always duplicate your symbols. Never, ever alter these unless you are…changing the rig itself.…If you are going to create a new animation, always make a duplicate and then do…all your experimental work in here.…So that's it, let's just work inside the mouth symbol to do the dialog line.…Double-click on that and here we have the familiar set.…Of course it's a dupe, so always double- check, triple-check, and we need to drop…
