Voice-O-Matic is available for 3ds max, Maya and Softimage.


Voice-O-Matic is simple, intuitive, fast and delivers beautifully on every one of it's high promises. Having worked in film, television and games, this is without a doubt one of the most impressive plug-ins I've ever used.

There is absolutely no way we could've animated the thousands of lines of dialog on our tight production schedule while still maintaining a high level of quality.

I recommend Voice-O-Matic to anyone trying to animate lipsync in a quick, easy and quality fashion. It's artist friendly and best of all, it actually works !

Javier Rodriguez,

Every single shot of our CG feature film has been using Voice-O-Matic to create a preliminary lip synchronization directly in Spanish. Of course we sometimes had to perform fine-tunings but the way Voice-O-Matic works, adjustments can easily be made afterwards by the character animators.

At Beenox/Activision, we rely heavily on Voice-O-Matic in our production workflow for both important first-pass lip-sync shots and crucial up-close sequences that we can adjust manually. When working on Dreamworks game projects like the Jerry Seinfeld ‘Bee Movie’ or ‘Monsters vs. Aliens’, many of our junior animators benefitted from the automated functionality that Voice-O-Matic offers.  At one point, we received over an hour of production shots to complete in a very short time. Voice-O-Matic helped us meet the deadline and avoid production time and cost overages.
