Magpie saves the synching lips

Phil South - November 30, 2006

magpie_screenshot.jpgMagpie and Magpie Pro are very specialist software. What they do is allow animators to figure out what mouth shapes to animate when adding visuals to avoice. It’s called lip sync. Actors record voices, and animators hear those words and draw or fashion from clay,the expressions and mouth shapes of the characters. Sounds simple, but it’s really not.

Magpie and it’s big brother Magpie Pro make this easy by loading the sound file up and breaking it down into frame sized pieces. Then you can assign a mouth shape to the syllables you hear, frame by frame. Then you can play the sound and watch the mouth. If it matches and looks good, you’re done, if not it’s back to the old drawing board. Magpie makes it simple.

    What I wouldnt give to possess a new discussion with you about this. You simply say a lot of stuff that arrive from nowhere that Im somewhat selected Id have a very fair shot. Your weblog is terrific visually, I mean people today wont be bored. But other individuals who can see previous the video clips in addition to the layout wont be so impressed collectively with your generic comprehension of this issue.
