Animating audio waveforms to shapes?
on Jan 18, 2013 at 3:43:23 am

Hello

I have Apple Motion version 5.0.6. With my older version of Motion that came with Final Cut Pro 7 I could select a behavior that would create keyframes from audio wave forms that I could then sync up to shapes like for example a mouth and it would animate to the audio waveform. However the only keyframes for audio I find in version 5.0.6 is fade and pan. Do you know how I achieve this same animation for mouth in my current version?

Thanks

Bryce

It's a parameter behavior called Audio.

[Jeff Greenberg] "It's a parameter behavior called Audio."

That's what I'm under. There is only pan and fade mode.

It's not in the audio behaviors. It's in the parameter behaviors.

Alternatively, you can right click on a parameter (such as scale) and attach a behavior to that parameter.

bug me if you can't find it.

I found it. when I create a separate layer for the mouth to move via the audio behavior the layer moves up instead of down. i have to selected for position Y. How do I get it to move down up apposed to up and down?

Change the scale (you'll have to click in the field) to -1. That inverts the data. You can adjust the scale higher/lower for a greater/lesser effect

Another problem is this. When I mask out the mouth I put a black layer behind it. Theoretically animating the mouth mask should cause black to appear underneath the mouth layer right? Cause it's not.

It sounds like you're animating the mask and not animating the mouth, which should be cut out from the face and be a separate layer. Animating the mask would only make it move over the face.

Forget the mask.

Cut the mouth from the face into a separate layer. On the face, have black where the missing mouth is.

Animate the mouth (lower lip to chin, actually).
