How to Animate Lipsync
Above is an excellent video on how to animate lipsync, showing how to break the process down into easy sections. The idea is to make sure that your work starts off simple and gradually grows in complexity as you layer in the detail. At its simplest, good lipsync is just about opening the character's mouth on the vowels, and closing it on the consonants. But, developing a system to keep it simple and at the same time get a sophisticated result, is all part of mastering the art and craft of animation.
Here at Bucks we believe that the secret of good lipsync really lies in great acting. After all, if you get the acting right, the lipsync is really an afterthought. Still, it's important to get it right, and not get bogged down in the detail.
