Text to Speech

Anonymous 2 months ago updated by Peter - Soxware Developer 2 months ago 1

Hello Everyone:

       Can UMotion do Text-To-Speech for a character at play time? And

    play the sound files with the facial animation?

  

    Thank you,

               Geoffrey

Hi,
thank you very much for your support request.

If you animate the facial expressions manually, then yes:

1) Create a Unity timeline sequence with the sound file and your animation

2) Sync UMotion to Unity timeline to edit the animation file

3) Make sure that in Unity timeline you have audio preview enabled (to actually hear the sound file while playback)

There is no automated way to do this in UMotion.

Please let me know in case you have any follow-up questions.

Best regards,
Peter
