Rules of the Exercise

  • 1
    Animation is with the Melvin Rig.
  • 2
    Lip sync animation follows the relative method.
  • 3
    Lip sync matches with the audio clip, giving the illusion that Melvin is talking.

This exercise is directly tied into the "Demystifying Lip Sync Animation" course. You'll need to download the project source files from the downloads tab on this page in order to get the 3D Melvin rig. Melvin_rig.blend is located in lib > chars > melvin.

We're diving into 3D lip sync with this exercise. Use the "Relative Method I" and "Relative Method II" lessons as guidance for animating Melvin's mouth to match with the provided "unicorn" audio clip.

When you're done animating, render out a video, post to YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia, and submit for grading!
