Using Fuse Character Creator with SALSA Lipsync

This all new workflow brings 1-click SALSA setup to Mixamo Fuse Characters. We leveraged features in 1.3.3 to create our CM_FuseSync script, along with a custom inspector, that provides a unique shape group capability that creates a great default setup, while also extending full shape group customization.

PLEASE NOTE: These instructions require you to download and install the appropriate 1-Click asset scripts in your Unity project. If you skip this step, you will not find the option for 1-Click in the menu.

2019-06-23 -- v2.0.0 released for use with SALSA Lipsync Suite v2.

2018-04-21 - v3.8.0 Fixed a bug that could prevent shapes from returning to zero. Cleaned up the inspector.

Documentation for SALSA LipSync Suite v2 -- located here.
