I have an idea for a short animated film and I want to start learning how to animate with DAZ.  So I wanted to know if anyone can give me some feedback on using AniMate2, Graph Mate and Keymate.

Do I need all three of these?  Do I need just AniMate2?  Will the previous AniMate add-on packs for M4 work with Genesis?  Is the lip synching feature included or is that part of an add-on?

Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks.

All you need is AniMate2 the others are for fine tuning. The older AniBlocks work okay if you get the free Genesis Foot fix from GoFigure. And lastly Lip sync is included in the 32bit versions of DS only. But It works very well.

TIP: Load your scene into the 32 Bit Prg and only do the Speech clip in it. Do all others in 64 bit if you can.

Ack!  Why is the lipsynch not in DS 64bit?

Yeah I only have the 64bit installed.  Won’t it cause conflicts to install both 32 and 64bit versions?

Nope they install just Fine, I have both installed. The Lip sync is a 32 bit thing. That’s all I know.
