Lipsyncing
Hey guys, i watched the tutorial how to lipsync , but it doesn't work for me, maybe because the update, can someone tell me steps how to do it ? Thanks.

Im using default TF2 models of SFM.

Make sure you load up the TF2 models in the HWM folder as they are the ones that have lip sync controls, the ones that are not listed as HWM do not have lip sync controls at all and are just plain standard basic lower quality models.

Once you have the HWM ones loaded, the extract Phonemes should work fine to audio clips etc as described in the tutorials, if you are dealing with custom models you can load up phonemes in the same sort of process as the tutorial but you may need to either manually program the lip sync animations (ugh) or use the HL2 Facs controls.

The HL2 Facs controls don't seem to work to well with the TF2 Models that I could see, but it should work for HL2 / Left 4 Dead 1 & 2, Sadly will not work with chell on portal 1 & 2 as her default model has no facial controls at all, but you can get around that by using a custom modelled chell etc.

All are viable but the manual programming takes totally ages to get right and is the most spot on usually to sync to words.

The lip sync automated in general is hit and miss that I have found through testing.
