Cartoon Animator 5 Phonemes for Morph Based face
Print Topic | Close Window

By Misery Guts - 2 Years Ago
Hi all,

New to Cartoon animation.

I used the trial version of Cartoon Animator 4 and had no problems using phoneme based mouth movements on a morphed face from a photograph of a real person. It was good and I was able to synchronize the mouth wording with the sound track I imported. I was also able to move the head and eyes. Great !!

So, I purchased Cartoon Animator 5 and have the following difficulty: When I add or edit a phoneme, all the subsequent phonemes on the Voice Clip stop working. The only fix I can add it to click on each phoneme separately, then click on the Lips Editor mouth shape to reactivate the phoneme. That's ok for a few seconds of voice clip at a push but not for over four minutes' worth. 

I read somewhere that I need to Release parts of the timeline. I tried that, but, it didn't make any change to the problem.

 I expect it's just a simple setting somewhere but have no idea where to look.

Any advice would be welcome.

P.S. this is the second time I have posted this request, the first post was sent to Moderators for approval but didn't seem to get moderated?

Thank you for notifying us of this issue. It does appear a bug.  I have passed this to CTA5 team to look into.

Once more is known I will update again. Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

The CTA team have confirmed this is a defect and will  try to fix the problem in the first available update.

For now it is recommended that when you make changes using the Lips Editor, you save your face motion and then load it back in again. This should ten resolve the problem until a permanent fix is ready.

Hi Peter.

I am really disappointed with this forum. My posts do not get moderated until I ask twice, and my time is running out.

I bought Cartoon Animator 5 to publish some projects before Christmas but the defective software is preventing this.

Please can someone respond to my last request.
