LIPSINC for the LAZY on Blender.

Episode 1: Tweened Cartoon.

A quick and simple way to animate dialog.

This would be ideal for a youtuber who wants to represent themselves as an avatar, or quickly animating a cartoon that mostly consists of dialog.

On later episodes I'm going to look at using more realistic characters (EG from Makehuman), and stop-motion - style characters, with replacement mouths and faces.

  • 09:22 Animate expressions
  • 10:17 Why don't we use actions for the body?
  • 11:52 Setting up a pose-lib

A slightly more advanced version of the character can be found here.
