I have recently tried a lip sinc animation. I just used a very simple yellow blob and made it say 'I am not purple.'
I did a lot of looking in the mirror to decide the sounds. I ended up with 5 mouth shapes, one for rest, one for I and A, one for M and P, one for T and one for N.
Hopefully you can tell which is which.
Then I recorded someone's voice and put it on windows movie maker. I timed each letter in hundreths of a second. Then I did some maths (on 'animation tips' post ) to find out how many frames I needed to take for each letter.
The upper lip is all bad but thats only because the battery on the camera was running out so I had to animate quickly.
The result is here.
