A couple of questions about Mimic Pro
i'm thinking of getting Mimic Pro, but i've got a couple of questions. any help from existing users would be welcome:
firstly, it doesn't say so in the blurb that i could see, but i guess that you can drive it by using sound files as well as mic input? i want to get voice actors to record the lines in wav (or mp) format, and then use those sound files to drive the process. is that feasible?
secondly, i've just switched from DS to Carrara for animation, but i may go back to DS again at some point. i don't want to buy two copies of Mimic Pro, so the question is: which app to buy it for?
there are drawbacks to both. if i get the DS version it will be yet another add-in that will probably need recompiling when a new version of DS comes out. and if i get the Carrara version it will only work in Carrara. no real way to use the output anywhere else i guess?
i'm leaning towards getting it for DS and then exporting the face/pose files from there into Carrara. it's not a great solution workflow-wise, but it might offer the most flexibility. has anybody any advice to offer on that?
