video clips of Disney birds to help with lip sync.
these are what i can draw inspiration from. As birds cant move their beaks while speaking, I can use their wings like hands an fingers to emote what they are saying. Disney break this beak rule by giving scuttle a flexible beak, which seems to me more like lips.
I also have a clip of Zazu's morning watch, same thing, good reference.
i found a clip on youtube of some excellent match moving or motion tracking. this i beleive is done in boozuu (not sure the spelling) and maya has a feature called maya live, involving using markers to match the camera to the footage.
I will have a go with maya live and a free rig Stephen pender managed to get from either turbo squid or creative crash.
