Facial morph animation in motion 3?
on Jun 9, 2010 at 5:03:52 pm

I have a project in development that calls for some facial morph animation, to make an inanimate object seem to talk. What would fit the bill is Crazy Talk, but that's a PC-only product. I'm wondering if there is some way to do convincing but uncomplicated facial morphing animations like that in Motion 3? I have done this kind of thing before in a South Park/ cut-paper style using keyframed timelines of independent mouth shapes, keyed over a blank face. And I was doing the Clutch Cargo Synchrovox thing way before Conan did... but this time I'm looking for something a little smoother and rendered-looking, more like real morphing work.

I'm trying, as always, to execute these things without the purchase of any additional software or hardware.

Any suggestions?

It works very well. Well worth the money. Zak Peric has a frame blending tutorial you should watch.
