Lately I have been working on doing 2D Adobe Flash looking animation. I have figured out how to do a lot of stuff and I got this extremely useful script:
But what I haven’t been able to figure out is lip sync and stuff like that. I don’t mean just lip sync technique or anything like that, but actually how to do it technically. I have a few different drawings for mouth movement, but I haven’t figured out how to do really animate it.
What I tried to do is to animate just the mouth by putting in different mouth pictures in frame by frame and save it with alpha, but that seemed to be extremely tedious and didn’t really work.
I found a 2d cutouts tutorial here on blenderartists, but all the links on it are dead, so its not much help.
