I am trying to get 2 characters to have a simple conversation. For example, I want Rory to say "Hello, how are you" by using a stand alone mp3 file. Then Charles responds "Very good thank you" with a different mp3 file. Then Rory says, "Glad to hear it." with yet another different mp3 file.

Rory: HelloHowAreYou.mp3

Charles: VeryGoodThankYou.mp3

Rory: GladToHearIt.mp3

What is the easiest way to assign my characters to lipsync to an individual mp3 file? I am having extreme difficulty getting characters to stick with a particular file, and the dialogue tutorial is out of date. I do not need to use the shush / talk effect, I just want the character to lipsync their assigned mp3 file.

you can only assign one audio track per character.

so you could do the first two parts of the conversation but not the third because of the lack of tracks.
so either join them all together into a single track (wav works better than mp3 in muvizu) using audacity (free and very good) or what ever audio editor you have and use the talk/shush method. or at least have all the speaking parts for one character on a single track. that would mean a bit more editing so you can get the timing right for the conversation. the shush/talk using a single track for both characters is by far the easiest way to go.

Ok thank you. This will take some extra planning on my part. Like I said, the tutorial is a bit dated so I was getting confused.

Having to do it this way seems limiting to creativity. I feel like I will be boxed into my preset dialogue and unable to make changes to the animation later on, as it will disrupt the dialogue. Sounds like the timing would be easy to screw up and frustrating to fix. Hopefully it is not as difficult as it seems.
