Hi, I gave character animator preview 1 a go - set it up in photoshop ok but when it came to using the puppet in character animator, the mouth movements didn't correspond to the words I was speaking. I'm using a webcam with built in mic and the mic levels showed to be loud enough. It was picking up movement and the expressions triggered by the camera and also some of the viseme mouth movements triggered by the mic but not all of them and they were not the ones that correspond to the particular sounds I was making. I tried with many different words and sound - for example, if I made a constant "Ah" sound it would cycle rapidly between a bunch of other viseme pictures - none of which were for the "Ah" viseme.
Hi Fred... Lip sync accuracy was improved for Preview 2, including things like trying to hit the "W-Oo" viseme. You can update to Preview 2 from the Creative Cloud application -- it'll appear as an After Effects CC (2015) update. Please let us know if Preview 2 is any better for you. Thanks!
Hi Fred... Have you had a chance to evaluate with Preview 2?
