I've been using Muvizu for a while and I recall that in the past, it was possible to lip sync multiple characters from a single window. You would hit record and, when the appropriate time came for a specific character to talk, you clicked on that character in a special panel. Therefore, you would only run the dialog once. That seems to have disappeared and now you have to repeat play the dialog and click on TALK/SHUSH for each character, which can be time consuming when you have a long clip and lots of characters, as well as increasing teh chances of making a mistake (e.g. clicking too early or too late).

Is there any other was to achieve this with multiple characters?

It would be nice if:

1) What I recall to be the old method was reinstated; and/or
2) TALK and SHUSH bars could be copied and pasted in the timeline, then moved; and/or
3) Each character could have his/her own dialog in the form of a WAV and would automatically lip sync to that dialog, wth Muvzu automatically detecting silences and sounds (I thought this used to happen as well, but I sem to be wrong).

well good news! Each character CAN have his own dialog audio file! But it can only be one file per character per scene, so you have to get the timing right, because you can't slide the phrases around on the timeline, only the whole audio snippet.

Just add the audio snippets individually as you would any other sound effects, then go to PREPARE > DIALOG and assign a character to that clip. You can slide the whole clip in the timeline to time it.

What I do to ensure the timing of my individual clips is to record them in AUDACITY on different tracks. In that environment you can move snippets around until the timing between characters dialog is what you want. Then export each track separately, and import them to MUVIZU and assign them to the appropriate characters! Muvizu does the rest!
