Yea I’m having a hard time finding a wav converter, Maya only doesn’t read this audio file


hey egeman, would you have any websites or references that could help me with lip syncing, never done it before, like I said I’m a noob. lol thanks


hi man, about the wav i am sorry i didnt try in maya the sound, but any program you ca nconvert ,next time i wil lbe careful about it. about lipsync. you can check digitaltutors, then have great 2 video training, and other, there are some pdfs( which are normally books) you can read, but it is quite long difficult subject i dont think quickly you can be success,but if you are enough stubborn about character anim. you can be sure, first of all check google photos, infos, about lip synch then you can get basic idea, first thing first : never make the shape of every letters of words) ,we nver speak as this…just search these ways and will be successfull i am sure


its cool man it’s just I’m new to animation, I’ve mostly done some 2d stuff. Im in school but its a generalized program so so i only know some texturing and modeling stuff. All i can really do right now is a basic ball bounce. That’s why I was stressing the need to start as small as possible.
