Lip Sync 301

Advanced Techniques:
If you've made it this far, you should be able to handle the majority of scenes that you will be faced with. However, there are a few instances when a character will be moving its head all around the screen while speaking, or there is just so much action going on that you simply cant use those techniques. There really isn't much that I can help you with here, as you may need to use a variety of different methods, depending on the scene.

One thing that may work is to try slowing down and speeding up the clip at various points.

Another thing that may be helpful is to create an overlay of the mouth like in the previous lesson, and then move the mouth up/down/left/right so that it fits on the character in the appropriate place.

In some situations, the best bet may be to just try drawing the mouth yourself. This is highly NOT recommended though.

If you come up against a scene that looks impossible to lip sync, don't give up. Just keep trying everything you can think of, and be as resourcefull as possible, and eventually you will get it.
That's about all I have to say on lip synching for now. If have any questions or comments, or if you found this guide to be difficult to follow, or anything of that nature, you can email me at this address:
