API Example -- SALSA Runtime Setup (boxHead)

This example code works but is somewhat theoretical and includes configuration for demonstration purposes only. Please check the comments for details and remove the additional expression components applied to the viseme expressions if you prefer a more practical end result. Please also change the namespace to your standard/required namespace. This boxhead example demonstrates ShapeController implementation. Please see the Runtime Setup documentation for detailed information on run-time setup and configuration for other controller types.

NOTE: See the SALSA API documentation for API details.

Test Your Runtime Code...

This isn't runtime, but you can use it to quickly test to see if your setup code (above) works (at design time) by calling an editor function...something like the following...

Select the boxhead model in your scene and then select the Unity menu item: GameObject > DemoCode > SALSA LipSync > DemoCode Boxhead SALSA Config (or whatever you have configured the menu item to be in the below script).

using UnityEditor;
using UnityEngine;
using CrazyMinnow.SALSA; // used to setup the audio clip.
using CrazyMinnow.SALSA.OneClicks; // only used to fetch the promo audio clip location...

namespace DemoCode // change this to your custom namespace...
    public class BoxheadSalsaRuntimeTester : Editor
        [MenuItem("GameObject/DemoCode/SALSA LipSync/DemoCode Boxhead Salsa Config")]
        public static void SetupBoxheadSalsa()
            var selectedObject = Selection.activeGameObject;
            // NOTE: BoxheadSalsaRuntime is in the DemoCode namespace by default...

            // An example of loading the demo promo audio clip into the audio source...
            // NOTE: In the above script, the AudioSource was set to not 'play on awake', so
            // be sure to play the audio source when you play your scene. See AudioSource
            // configuration in the BoxheadSalsaRuntime code above.
            var salsa = selectedObject.GetComponent<Salsa>();
            if (salsa != null && salsa.audioSrc != null)
                salsa.audioSrc.clip = AssetDatabase.LoadAssetAtPath<AudioClip>(OneClickBase.RESOURCE_CLIP);
