Rules of the Exercise

  • 1
    Animation is with the Baker Lite character.
  • 2
    Lip sync matches with the audio clip, giving the illusion that Baker is talking.
  • 3
    Lip sync animation is detailed, natural, and high quality.

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 [simplified] 3D Baker rig. Baker_lite_2.79.blend is located in lib > chars > baker_lite_2.79.

This is the most advanced lip sync exercise in the course. It builds off the "relative method" from the Melvin lip sync lessons and pushes it further in terms of quality. Reference the "High Quality Lip Sync I" and "High Quality Lip Sync II" lessons as guidance for animating Baker's mouth to match with the provided "blow some tiny minds" audio clip.

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