I am making lego stop motion animation films and the lego guys are going to be talking and even though there is some way to do this without alamdv2 (which takes an extremely long time to do) it would be really cool to have a plugin that could make the same effect.

that's quite a good idea - with the mouth in several expressions, or just opening and closing, should be quite cool

Can somebody please make that into a plugin because it would be a great thing to have in a movie so anyone who looks at this request could you please give me some feedback on whether you will make the plugin or not. thanks

Alright, I'll take a stab at it now. What do you need? Just a black mouth moving like the lego dudes? Give me a detailed description.

Would something simple as a black line work for their mouths in the closed position? I'm drawing up some things now, I'll post some images in a couple minutes to see if they'll work.

if i were u - instead of giving them a yellow background, i would make the background transparent, otherwise, they won't match with his lego men's skin colour
Also - the things u want black, make them slightly off black, otherwise they will go transparent in the plugger

Aww, just when I thought history was going to be made...
Anyway, those Lego mouths are lookin' good, Hajiku_Flip
You'll probably need one for each phoneme, or at least enough of them to cover the entire phoneme range

Yeah, sorry, I've been busy. School is coming up, and I had lots of things to do. Just finished it up, and submitted it. Should be uploaded and on the site within the next few minutes, depends on how active malone is
. Give me some feedback, and let me know how it is.
