In this CINEMA 4D tutorial we will learn to create fast and flexible lip sync rigs for CINEMA 4D.

We will go over some techniques to speed up your rigging and animation workflow and create a semi-automatic lip sync performance within minutes. We will rig all the different parts of the face in preparation for lip syncing, as well as get a good introduction to the Pose Morph tag. Because of the automated lip sync, you will stay flexible and agile with any changes that you receive from clients.
