CrazyTalk provides special lip synchronization tools to make sure that the lip movements match the words being spoken by the virtual actor. A viseme is a generic facial image that can be used to describe a particular sound. It is the visual equivalent of a phoneme, or a unit of sound in a spoken language. Using visemes, CrazyTalk provides lip synchronization which can later be adjusted for different sounds as required.
The lip-synching keys are stored in the Lips track, which belongs to the Voice track. You may open it by clicking the button on the Voice track.
