SALSA: Simple Automated Lip Sync Approximation for Unity developers

High-quality Unity lip synchronization for your 2D and 3D characters using Sprite textures and Blend Shapes. Audio is processed in real-time to automate four basic mouth positions. This is the basis for lip-sync approximation. Instead of pre-processing or mapping shapes to audio markers, mouth movement is procedurally applied to a minimal set of mouth shapes to provide variation. Results are superior to basic jaw-bone animations and remove the complexity of labor-intensive, phoneme mapping. This is the Unity lip sync asset with the most features and best results for your money.

NOTE: Automatic lip-synchronization is language-agnostic and will work for any spoken language.

Great-looking lip synchronization in 4 easy steps:
  • Attach the component to a SALSA-ready model.
  • Link up the mouth shapes (or use a compatible OneClick setup)
  • Provide an audio source
  • Hit Play = Automatic Lip Sync

A really great solution to lip sync, works great in 2D :) (★★★★★) -Michael (Unity Asset Store review)

Eyes: natural eye and head movement/tracking

Random and programmatic eye movement, blinking, and GameObject-based eye tracking, on any number of eyes for your 2D and 3D characters. Eye animation uses BlendShapes and Sprite texture types.

Eye-movement animations now have a Target Affinity control, giving your characters a virtual attention span. Keep eye movement focused on a target for a randomized percentage of time. This feature loosens up a targeted eye and allows it to roam but still remain focused on the target.
