2D Animation Lip Assignment

Within one single day you get the lips files in the format you need as well as a control video if needed.

3D Animation Lips Assignment


In a first stage we process a serie of free tests based on one or more character rigs (Maya scene, etc.) and on a scene sound sample.
We only need the lips positions, you don't need to send us the complete rig.

  • We provide you videos that allow you to preview lipsync style and set it according to your specifications for the whole project.

    We can correct and adjust the lipsync following your comments and requests until the test matches your specifications.

On the production pipeline, for each episode or film sequence, you send us the audio files, the animatic,the scene list (Excel file or EDL) and the dialog script. Our track read will be based on these elements.
Within one single day you get the lips animation curves as well as a control video if needed.

Documentation is also provided. The visualization and selection among mouth libraries is very simple (mood, face position).
