Lip Sync Pro is a software application for planning ("breaking down") dialogue for animation into Exposure-Sheets. Otherwise known as X-Sheets. This helps you match the mouth shape of your stop motion puppets with the voices you recorded.
Simply record a .WAV file of your or an actors voice that you would like your puppet to speak. Then open it in Lip Sync Pro and choose how many frames per second your animation will be.
After opening you will be able to move through the frames, listening to what the mouth shapes should be. If your actor speaks the word CAT, then it may look something like this:
Click the corresponding mouth shape and play back a test to see if the audio lines up with the exposure sheet. If it does, print it out or use it on a computer next to your puppet that you plan to animate.
Then, once your puppet is where he will speak the word cat, check off the frames on your X-Sheet as you go. Your animated mouths will sync up with the voice actors voice perfectly. This is how voices have been added to animation since the beginning of sound on film. Only its super simple now with programs like Lip Sync Pro.
LSP has many features, including...
- zooming into the audio track
- looping, scrubbing
- utilizing different frame rates
- adding notes
- allowing custom mouth shapes for testing
- exporting into different file types
