i think that plugin would be realy hard to do,
the plugin maker would need to know what colour the gpig is, and what angle.
and they would need to find a gpig matching that one, or a cg gpig ( but that won't look right )
I think what you need is a plugin that would be universal eg: just a mouth without fur, moving ( still would be hard )
another idea is to frame grab your gpig and use photoshop to make it's mouth move, but that could take a while.
anyone got any idea's

Is it for a live action guinipig, or do you want a CG 1. If its the live action 1, thats almost impossible, as moving the mouth also requires the whole face to move. If its the CG 1, then fur is hard to animate, and it probably wont look real. Might I suggest a puppet, or a very good reliable computer animation company (I think Im overestimating your budget).

Maybe if you want help the best thing would be to post an image from the clip of your guineapig.

no chance you can do that with a plugin... It is possible though. If you use a morphing tool in combination with Photoshop. It will be very hard and timeconsuming. But could be done...

A note on Crazytalk: the results are
far from realistic. They usually end up looking like animated paper cut-outs
