Using Automatic Lip-Sync

The simplest lip-sync solution switches between the available sublayers in a Switch layer based on the amplitude level of the associated audio file. This method is called Automatic Lip-Sync. For example, if you create three mouth graphics showing the mouth closed, half-open, and fully open, then the Switch layer will switch between these graphics showing the mouth closed graphic when the audio is silent, half-open when the volume is mid-level, and fully open when the audio is at its loudest. This isn’t an exact match, but for some characters it is close enough to show the character speaking.

Note

Automatic lip-sync is available in both Anime Studio Debut and Anime Studio Pro.
