Hi Any advice on the best text to speech software?

Also on the text to speech can you pause for a while in between sentences or can this be done on Muvizu?

Hi S7ani, and thanks for trying Muvizu.

Some of the guys and gals in the office have used these converters:

http://www.cross-plus-a.com/balabolka.htm

http://www.caltroxsoft.com/products/a1-speechtron.htm

Most text to speech software puts a break into playback when you use punctuation; for instance you could put the following in and it might generate a decent gap (I have typed the name of the punctuation to avoid confusion).

comma space full stop

If it doesn't generate a big enough gap in the playback you could save the file then edit it using Audacity - which is free and pretty decent.

If you have any questions or suggestions please let us know.

Take care,
-Jim.

Freesound.org has an excellent searchable and ever growing collection

Your missing sfx might be solved by "logging in" within Muvizu which gives access to extra assets

Hi S7ani,

For your character to lipsync to your audio, it needs to be imported into Prepare > Dialogue.

You can only have one dialogue file, so for your characters to have a conversation, it all needs to be mixed into in one audio file.

It might help you to watch Tutorial 7 - Basic dialogue and music:



Hope that clears things up.

Any other questions, don't hesitate to get back in touch.

Good luck and happy animating!

Emily.
