    Hi all, I have changed my singing trees from 8 channel rgb to pixels. I am now struggling with the mapping. All I had setup before was, top lip, bottom lip, mid lip and so on. Now we have all the different mouth movements, eg mouth L, mouth e, etc. Does anyone have a map of how they have set theirs up that they could share. Thanks in advance.
    I am using xlight's.
    Ron.

    How did you go with this process Ron? I have a local here @Josh87 who has made a pixel based face and needs a hand setting it up and sequencing it.

    I found a model for a tree and puzzled out the import Ron. Can help you out if you need it still. No idea how to do the serious sequencing with it but can get them singing.

    Hi Ron
    I ended up downloading the file from http://www.nutcracker123.com/wk/index.php?title=File:Singing_Tree.xlsx which has a coro tree format. I renumbered the tree to match what Josh had and based on that under the custom model that was created and under "faces" for it you create a table of node ranges to suit your face. Attached is a pic of what the table ends up looking like to get your phonemes and also the raw custom model which I created from the excel table.
    I can't find the excellent video I worked the process out from but hopefully the above is enough info.

    Alan
