View Full Version : Adding Dialogue in Layout

04-08-2005, 11:38 AM
IS there a way to add dialogue in Layout? A recorded voice to match lip syncs to?
If so, how do I do it, and what do I do if there isn't a way.
I know there is a way in Maya, but I'm trying to find a way in lightwave.

in the scene editor on the top there is a button that says "Audio" just click and go down to "load audio".. find your file and open it.. it'll open the visual wave lengths down in the time bar..

Only partially true.

Loading audio in LW allows you to ONLY use an audio file as reference for lip sync or scene timing purposes. It does NOT allow you to save an animation with audio! If you are wanting to export an animation with dialogue/audio included, you will need to use AfterFX or Premiere or some other editing software to combine the two.
