I've been thinking. It seems like it would be really hard to do voices then animate to them. I guess that's the best way, the way the pros do it.


Not much more to say, really.

thoughts?

With doing voices first, you know how long to make things last, but it involves a little more work on your part.  Doing it the other way around means you have to work carefully to make things fit right.

Funk's right. Even with the action figures I try to get the voices first so they can react to any words the actor might have emphacised or stuff like that. It helps a ton. I had a problem with it on HSA. They even did it on Corpse Bride. Take it from the pros.

Yeah, I think so.

Just wanted to hear some about it as this is my first real attempt at it Smiley

Yeah, pretty much any animated film is done with the voice acting first and is then animated to fit the performances.  But on occasion the animation will be done first and the actors must match their performance to what's already set.

That's generally on lower-budget and older animations.

Actually, I first saw that on a doc about a Disney movie.  It was only one or two scenes though.

Seriously, it's either for both cast and crew to have the recordings first and animate around it. It takes no extra effort and the work in the end is dramatically reduced.

Plus, like I saw in a ROTS doc, if you want to get a feel for how people's lips move to certain lines look in a mirror and speak as you're animating.
