High realistic lip synchronization for 3d animated characters

Keywords: 3D animation - Graphics - Speech Synthesis

Functional Description: Dynalips provides a solution to synchronize precisely and automatically the movements of the lips of a 3D character with speech (we address 3D animation movies and video games). We have developed a demonstrator that illustrates the whole process: from audio + text to the generation of the animation trajectory, and controlling the animation of a 3D model (e.g. an avatar). The demonstrator is composed mainly by the player developed in Unity 3D (but can be used with any other system) and plays the animation synchronously with speech in realtime. It is possible to generate an animation for Autodesk Maya 3D.

News Of The Year: The player has been extended to be multilingual thanks to two developments within two projects. In fact, within the METAL project, a lipsync for German has been developed. In addition, within the ATT Dynalips, we have built a lipsync for English.
