Moho to Lightwave

Translate Moho format phonemes to Lightwave envelope keyframes by pasting your lipsync animation below. Set your frame rate and desired keyframe type, then generate envelopes for each of the phonemes you need.

Best used with output from the lip sync application Papagayo, but will work with translated Yolo and JLipSync output as well. (use the Phoneme Translation Utility for Preston Blair conversion)

Envelope data for each phoneme should be saved in a plain text document and labeled with the phoneme name. In the Lightwave graph editor, right click a morph channel and choose "replace" to load keyframes from the correct phoneme file.
