Adobe Animate’s Auto Lip-Sync feature matches mouth poses to sound inflections – a quick and easy time-saver for animators.
Draw mouth shapes
Draw all the mouth shapes you need for your character.
Convert each one to a Graphic Symbol.
Create a master mouth symbol
Auto Lip Sync references from this master mouth pose.
Drag each viseme to its own keyframe
Align each one so it’s centered on the stage.
Mouth poses need to be present on different keyframes of a single Graphic Symbol. Keeping each mouth pose within its own Graphic Symbol is a matter of choice, and may be useful for organizing the poses.
In the master mouth Symbol, consider adding frame labels to each keyframe for easy identification of mouth poses later on. The labels also appear in the lip-syncing dialog, and assist while mapping the visemes (shown in Step 5).
