How do I make animals / custom props talk? (Workaround)

Vyond Studio does not currently support lip-sync capabilities for animals or props; however, this workaround may allow certain items within Studio to imitate a similar lip-sync effect.

1) Access the Props tab in the Asset Library and click on the desired prop to add it to the scene. Custom props are allowable in most cases - check this article for instructions on how to upload assets.

2) Click on the prop in the scene and copy the color code or use the color eyedropper tool.

Tip: If Business Friendly is the current style in the video, change the top to "shirtless". This ensures the neck is the same color as the rest of the body.
