In Part 4, Dave Legion shows us how to set up the lip syncing for your puppet using Mamoworld’s Auto Lip-Sync solution. He also shares some interesting tricks and techniques along the way.
Mettle`s FreeForm plug-in for After Effects is a key component of Dave`s character animation. It streamlines the workflow in AE, and lets you control your character more like a puppet. A key feature is the ability to rotate your character`s head 180 degrees in 3D space.

Dave Legion put together this tutorial series because of all the positive feedback and inquiries from "A Story of Hope": vimeo.com/76355324 - an animation that he and the amazing folks at Funky Medics put together for the FH Foundation. It was all done in Adobe After Effects using Mettle's FreeForm + MamoWorld's Lip Sync. Great animation and a great cause. Dave wants to send out a big thanks and shout out to Daniel Gies, whose work and tutorials inspired and helped him tremendously.
Mettle would also like to thank Dave for using our FreeForm plug-in, and for creating such inspirational work!.
