Easily accessing mouth poses to keyframe

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

As I also talked about in my last thread, I'm creating this human rig and right now I'm in the process of creating mouth controls. I have a setup where parts of the lips are linked to a pose morph who are linked to a controller. That is going fine. Though I thought that if I want to do some lip syncing, it would be annoying to remake the mouth pose for every frame. Even if I copy and paste the keyframe I would still have to remake the pose in the beginning.

In After Effects, when you want to lip sync a character (at least how I would do it) is using a composition layer with all the different mouths and then apply a time remap to easily call the needed positions.

In the picture I attached I show the way I would like to have the time remapping-like feature. When I click and keyframe one of the buttons, the corresponding pose morph slider goes to 100% and the others fall back to 0%.

I have to use Xpresso for this but have trouble figuring it out (I know only some basics of it).


Could someone help me with this?

Thank you very much!
