Thread: new user has question

    Default new user has question

    This is my first forum post, and I am a very basic beginner. I have a Macbook Pro with a few video editing software programs, but likely do not have what I will need to achieve this:

    I have seen a photograph with talking lips super-imposed over the mouth, where it looks like the photograph is talking.

    How can i do that? First of all, what software would I need, and second, with that software, what is the procedure?

    You need editing software that you can layer 2 tracks one of the photo of the head and the other the video of the talking mouth. Put the photo timeline above the video timeline. You will need to cut a "mask" or hole in the the photo track with the masking tool so you can see the mouth, have some feathering around the hole so it's not a Sharp cut. Position the and size the mouth so it looks right.

    That is the basics of how to do it. I can not teach you the art of how to do it well.

    Good luck.

    For PC users there's an application called Crazy Talk. There may be similar for the white brigade.
