Hey everyone, 

I posted my forums in Blender and Mod The Sims yesterday and two days ago and I have no single answer from them because they are surprised or love my work.. xD 
Anyway here is my original thread. I should've post my throubleshoot here in the first place.. Not Mod The Sims and Blender because they do not help me a lot! 

--------------------------

Hi everyone,

 

I now make really big animations for The Sims 3 and I use blender to make animations. The preview animation on Blender went fine but when I tested in-game. The sim's lips is not synced with the music. It looks smooth but it's way too fast. Here is my video I just uploaded on YouTube. I had to use slowmotionviz 1 and 2 cheat to slow it down but it still doesn't fix the problem.

 

Here is my video I am working on. At the ending bit is not synced.. :/

Here is my Machinima Animation progress and the lip sync is alright..

This is essiepictures video and he's making a extreme animation like what I am doing. I don't know how he made the lips synced in-game.

I think you did really well!
There is a tool called "Crazy Talk" but not sure essiepictures is using it. Hers is very good, almost makes me wonder if she's importing BVH files.
But yours is very very good.

Essiepictures wouldn't use Crazy Talk if he/she made so many animations on the whole body with Blender. x) Every scene is like 5-7 seconds so I won't get any problems with lip sync. :)

that's what I said, I think it's a BVH or mocap file. There are a few floating around and you can make them with Kinect.

Woah... I bet she was dancing with Kinect! xD 
Oh My gosh.... Kinect will be so awesome! :D If only if it's compatible with children size. :)

@Ansett, that Blender video it shows your animation playing back at 24fps, The Sims 3 plays back animations at 30fps, that's probably why it's going out of sync.

Okay I just noticed! :D It's out of sync when using 24 Frame Rate and I can't believe I did that.... xD Damn good thing I did a preview one first. x) I'll see the results on Thursday. :) It looks like i better make another Trailer video but a best one on Thursday. :)

I should give you something Ballantyne.. You solved my problem! :D Mod The Sims and Blender site never helped me and thanks to both of you. :D And also thanks to Simatography! :D
