Harmony can automatically map drawings in an element to the mouth chart you have generated for a sound. This can save time when you are lip-synching a voice track.
In the Layer Properties view, you can identify each lip drawing of a character. Harmony then automatically labels all of the cells in the character's element with the appropriate name.
- To open the Lip-Sync Mapping dialog box, do one of the following:
|‣||In the Layer Properties view, click on the Map button.|
|‣||In the Timeline view, right-click on any cell in the sound sample layer and select Lip-Sync > Map Lip-Sync.|
|‣||From the top menu, select Animation > Lip-Sync > Map Lip-Sync.
The Lip-Sync Mapping dialog box opens.
- From the Destination Layer menu, select the layer that contains the mouth positions for the character's voice track.
- If the selected layer contains symbols, you can map the lip-sync using drawings located directly on the layer or use the symbol's frames. In the Symbol Layer field select Don't Use Any Symbol if you want to use the drawings or select the desired symbol from the drop-down menu.
- In the Mapping section, type the drawing name or Symbol frames in the field to the right of the phoneme it represents. If your drawings are already named with the phoneme letters, you do not have to do anything.
