Specifically for REALbasic animation developers? No, but what
difference does it make what development environment you're doing?
The cheapest mouth animation software I'm aware of is Hash Animation
Master -- a google search should turn it up.

This sounds like an extremely expensive approach to getting a
straight man to me. It could work, but even with sophisticated
software, be prepared to put weeks into getting it working at all,
plus a few hours for each line you want the avatar to deliver,
depending on how experienced you are in character animation.

Has any lip sync software been written for RealBasic animation
developers.

I want to use RealBasic.
I want to create avatars that lip synch to voice audio files.
As a bonus it would be great to control avatar motions in
some simple fashion.

The end result would be that my partner ( who is less technical )
would be able to give management seminars and have an
avatar up on a projection screen that would play the straight
man.... ask leading questions, answer a question if everyone
in the audience is stumped, etc.

Does anything like this exist that is RealBasic based ?
I was looking at software called Red Ted.
www.redted.mcmail.com/
Red Ted appears to have gone out of business.

Any suggestions are welcomed.
