NodeCanvas Actions for SALSA with RandomEyes

We're very excited to announce that with the release of SALSA with RandomEyes 1.4.0 and NodeCanvas 2.4.0, you can now control SALSA lip-sync natively with the [Say] and [Multiple Choice] dialogue Nodes in NodeCanvas's DialogueTree Graph. If you're not familiar with NodeCanvas, it's a superb behavior designer and state machine from ParadoxNotion. In addition to the native support for lip-sync, we're offering a free NodeCanvas add-on with over 30 custom nodes to expose deep control over complex facial expressions, settings, and more.

12/21/2018 - v1.3.0 Removed deprecated references to [AgentType]. Tested with SALSA 1.5.5 and NodeCanvas 2.9.0 on Unity 2018.2.6f1.

Free NodeCanvas add-on for SALSA with RandomEyes

SALSA expression in NodeCanvas

Be sure to install SALSA with RandomEyes and NodeCanvas into your project before importing this addon. This addon includes an example scene that demonstrates an example dialogue flow with lip-sync and complex facial expressions. The example scene can be found in the following folder:

  • Crazy Minnow Studio -> SALSA with RandomEyes -> Third Party Support -> NodeCanvas -> Scenes

All SALSA with RandomEyes nodes can be found under:

  • Action -> SALSA with RandomEyes

SALSA lipsync works natively with the [Say] and [Multiple Choice] dialogue Nodes in NodeCanvas's DialogueTree Graph. With these two nodes handling lip-sync, and the following two nodes handling complex facial expressions, SALSA and NodeCanvas make it simple to create lively and emotionally expressive characters.

  • Re3D_SetGroup
    • Enable or disable complex facial expression shape groups.
  • Re3D_SetGroupDuration
    • Enable complex facial expression shape groups for a specified duration.    

Other SALSA with RandomEyes public API methods have a corresponding NodeCanvas node. Please reference the Classes, Methods, & Properies section of the SALSA and RandomEyes manuals for more information.
