Papgayo verses Magpie

Post by banditsgirl » Wed Oct 24, 2007 7:13 pm

Historically I've used Magpie to create exposure sheets for lip synching. I've recently discovered Papagayo, and would like to print an exposure sheet that I can use to hand draw my animations. I'm wondering if anyone knows how to make sense of the printed document that Papagayo produces. Not every frame is listed in the timeline, so I'm confused about how many frames to record each drawing. Are there anymore magpie users out there?

Hi, I don't have Magpie. When version 1.0 was released they stopped the free shareware version. I know people who still have the free version 0.9 but in searching the internet I haven't been able to locate it. I guess they made everyone stop providing it too.
I also tried to purchase a copy by asking for a competitive upgrade price as I own a few other Lip Sync products and their response was NO! I think that was stupid for them but good for me as the wave for products now is to provide lip sync as part of the program and you don't need a third party product anymore. I believe in the latest version of Poser that is a new feature that is included in the base software.

Open a sound file in Papagayo, any file will do. Next type, ai o e u ect l wq mbp fv rest. Click English, redraw the mouths on to your own chart. Or you can open the file with the jpg pictures that came with Papaqayo. under mouths. Mine's 9x9 with rest in the bottom right corner.

Use Papagayo normally.
Save the file as a Dat. Open up in word pad and print it.

The dat file has the frame numbers and the mouths for each frame. Each mouth is carried to the next frame.

Example:

MohoSwitch1
1 rest
2 rest
3 etc
6 O
8 etc
11 E
13 rest
13 rest
14 FV
17 O
19 etc

frame 4 and 5 is ect. 7 is O. 9 and 10 is etc.
