lipsync and audioscope


Lipsync module is designed for creating advanced face setup – mouth phonem, eyes state, eyebrows state and expression.
For editing Lipsync variables, first load an audio file into the Audioscope module.

The Lipsync window consists of three areas:

- Face Monitor - with face preview and helpful details – frame number, time code and states of the parts of the face

- Variable Source – light-blue area with all available variables can be
set within Lipsync module

- Lipsync Monitor – light-yellow area with columns: Frame, TimeCode, Mouth, Eyes, Eyebrows, Expression and Comment divided to frames based on Audioscope data.

Audioscope is synchronized with the active sequence.
As opposed to Rotoscope files, an audio file is not attributed
to a specific sequence. However each sequence has own synchronization point. The file may contain e.g. an actor’s lines,
a dialog or a musical composition, to which a video clip is being created. One audio file can be used for several sequences.
The synchronization point is set in three ways:

- synchronization to the first frame of the active sequence
- synchronization of the current audio frame to the current frame in the active sequence
- synchronization to the last frame of the sequence

The synchronization point can be changed any time. It is memorized together with the project for each sequence separately.
A comment for every frame may be used i.e. for determining syllables in the statement (phonemes).
This message is displayed as a hint in the left top corner of the 'Mix Window'.
It applies to a frame not yet digitized ('Grab Frame'). That means, on the ground of the comment you can suitably prepare recorded objects and then digitize them to the sequence. 'Audioscope' will
automatically go over the next frame of the audio file and display the next comment.
The comment is memorized in the file created in the project folder. Its name originates from the audio filename; in this connection, you should avoid giving the same name to different audio files (e.g. in different folders). It is recommended that an extra folder be created in which to place all files used in the project. You can copy comment file (*.adi - audioscope info) to other project, which uses the same audio file.
