Hi folks,

In my first two making of videos I showed you how to keyframe a character. If you haven't seen them ... look here:
https://forum.reallusion.com/401857/Work-in-progress-keyframing-a-charcter-in-iClone

Today I will show you how to clean the viseme track in iClone and how to use the phonems to get a propper facial expression from prerecorded audio.

I see that thedirector1974 is making the same errors as me. 
Here is why.

There is a misleading cue in iC7, when a viseme is selected you make a logical assumption that clicking on a viseme on the lips editor will cause the highlighted viseme to change but it doesn't.

Instead

The viseme is changed or added to where the playhead is located and that has got to be changed.
It is anti-intuitive, it causes needless playhead fiddling about to align with the viseme that is already selected or causes a lot of undos.
If this is because of the Auto playhead alignment then that feature should be given an exception to viseme editing.
