Di-O-Matic, a Montreal-based developer of user friendly character animation software, has announced the launch Voice-O-Matic v2 (Maya Edition). Di-O-Matic heard the call from animators. Spending hours creating lip synch animations for CG characters can be tiring and manually generating every single lip movement can be a long and tedious task.
Once integrated with Autodesk Maya, Voice-O-Matic only requires an audio file to automatically produce accurate lip synch animations in minutes instead of hours! The results can later easily be tweaked to match any style of animation perfectly.
“There is absolutely no way we could’ve animated the thousands of lines of dialog on our tight production schedule while still maintaining a high level of quality without Voice-O-Matic. I recommend Voice-O-Matic to anyone trying to animate lipsync in a quick, easy and quality fashion. It’s artist friendly and best of all, it actually works!” already mentioned senior animator Abel Salazar.
Voice-O-Matic works with any type of character setup and with virtually any language. Voice-O-Matic has already earned its stripes with its use in leading feature films, popular television shows, commercials and award winning video games. Some of the most admired CG franchises including Batman, Spider-man and Superman sport what Voice-O-Matic can achieve.
