LipSync MX is software that allows web designers and animators to create realistic lip synchronization animations. It has a highly intuitive and user friendly interface. LipSync MX computes lip syncs using sound files and mouth shape images (called visemes) already predefined for male and female voices in different languages.
LipSync MX has language support for English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and others. It also supports all the major file formats including BMP, JPEG, PNG, TIFF and SWF. It can import and export MP3, AIFF, and .WAV files. Phonetic support of up to 40 phonemes is also available. LipSync MX provides a real time preview of animations.
The lip synchronizations achieved are also of high quality. Complete lip synchronization can be achieved in 4 easy steps.
1. Import your audio sound
2. Import your graphic character
3. Fine tune the sound waveform
4. Output in your preferred format
Talking characters can be created or published into an SWF file, that can be used in Adobe Flash Player. So action scripts are not necessary any more. The animation can also be saved as an .AVI or as an image file sequence.
What I liked most about this program was its ability to create SWF files quickly and easily. With this program, you can create web ready characters.
