Okey dokey, I am tired of hearing folks say they cannot do animations.
it is not rocket science.
The easiest type is lipsync.
just a face closeup.
so I am putting up a couple of simple tutorials
Wendy style
Part one click here
plain grey Genesis in a t-pose
too easy

do one and post it here
get a youtube account or put it on facebook whatever, add a link.
ask questions
just try it


sorry, I only have Windows, Mac much the same but save as .mov rather than .avi
save uncompressed in Windows at least and compress using Windows movie maker for best Youtube file size

(to use free lip sync . need to install d|s 4.5 32 bit ver  about windows.
I do not know about MAC ds,,)

I installed ds 4.5 32bit ver, for lip sync only. I can use every contents and one CMS
by 64bit ver too, so just install 32 bit daz studio aprication only. not need to install otehr contents again.

( when install ds 32bit, check the default contents folda is same as usuall you installed the contents)
ofcourse 32bit aprication need to be installed different directory C:\Program Files (x86)\ 
in windows 7 )

gif animation tute coming
more suited for those posing pretty Daz dollies
as it is simply an image series rather than a video
You can use better render settings, nice lighting etc

I need to go look at the tut again.  I made a face, recorded a couple of sentences, thought I put it together, and nothing happened.  No sound nor movement,

Did you have the figure selected or just its head?
can you hear the sound file if you press play instead of analyze in the lipsync tab?
when you pressed analyze did it do anything, put up any messages?
does the figure if not Genesis, have phoneme morphs?
did you record a seperate sound file or try to use the record function in studio? (the latter is very dodgy and I would avoid it like the plague)
does one of the example files that come up when you press load work?

Good troubleshooting technique Wendy smile

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

Only the head selected.
no.
no
Genesis figure
separate sound file
yes

Therefore, it must be something I’m doing wrong.  Could be my mic although I tried an external and the built-in.

Best guess:  defective user

I have physical therapy this morning, but will try again later today.

sounds like it must be your sound file, try opening it in Audacity and resaving it

Aaaarrrggghhhh ... “easy” ha!

She turned out GREEN. Hair, skin, eyes, lips, everything GREEN.
Everything looked to be set up ‘just right’. Spot renders were correct. Waited HOURS for the render to finish. 3,898 frames but who’s counting.

Part way through the rendering I noticed that the AV had reactivated itself so I turned it off again ... and then she was ‘normal’ colour.
But Windows Player wouldn’t play the entire film clip, just 3/4 quarters, some nonsense about not recognizing a non-existent compression codex. [for uncompressed files] Pinnacle could play it fine.

If anybody is interested, the only change I made was to change the background colour from white to a colour ... the time per render between 32bit and 64bit is about 2 seconds. It’s possible that the colour takes an extra second per render.

Cheers grin


edit: Well take 2 was no better. The really odd thing though is that an avi render of just the first section is fine. But when the entire project is rendered, the first part is ‘not’ fine. Take 2 was green with a pink background. Then static. Then as it should be [except for the lip sync which wasn’t exactly but ....
