    Default Lip sync onVixen 3.5

    I looked through Ed's videos and I saw a section on making a matrix grid for lip sync phoemes.
    I know this is an older video but I can't seem to find it anwhere on the new release.
    I want to make a singing megatree next year but I can't seem to find the way to do it on Vixen.
    Can someone point me in the right direction.
    I looked on Xlights and that has the options but not really looking to change software.
    See all our videos at:

    The option is still there, it has just changed slightly. Under Tools -> Lip-sync -> Edit Image Maps Here you can map images to the phonemes and create a map. Then when you place the lip-sync effect on your grid, you can choose the map that has the image maps you want to use. You can create many image maps and use them on any grid you have. If you use the new mark setup for laying out the song lyrics, the one effect with map the images to the phonemes just like the regular faces work.

    Hope that helps.

    The grid clicking method was replaced by proper images. The grid system was horribly limiting and slow. So we replaced that functionality with images. If you click to edit the image, it'll bring up the windows image editor. You can draw anything you like in there. If you could draw it by clicking grid boxes you can certainly draw it in the image editor. Or you can import any images you like.
