Hi !
Yes of course
Fist of all are you using windows or Linux?

Hi Baaz
Im using windows

Here is the download link

Download the win32 version and extract it to a folder
It’s very better if you read the Readme here
Before you start it shows what lip shapes you need to darw (plus some stuff about how to use the program)

Sadly I don’t have windows installed so iam telling this based on the linux version

Rhubarb is a cli (terminal) program so it dosent have a graphical user interface (you can’t click stuff) so at first it may look like a little unfriendly

The files you need for the program are :

A voice file (I highly suggest it to be in ogg format (for converting between formats use a program like audacity ))

A duiloge file in txt format this file contains the text that is spoken in the voice file

Copy this files in to the folder that you extracted at first

So now for giving all this files to the program you need to :

Search and open CMD from start menu
The with the use of cd command you need to navigate in to the folder that you extracted at first you can use the tutorial in this website to learn to how to use the cd command

Afeter navigating to the folder you can use this command to generate the lipsync file (change the file name to your own file names )

rhubarb.exe -f tsv -d dilog.txt Voicefile.ogg -o output.tsv

It will take a few seconds to a minute and then you will have a .tsv file that you can import to synfig

After importing a group with the name of your .tsv file will appear at synfig in that group there are other groups named I guess from A to F and a X that you need to put your mouth drawings in them after that it’s all done

Thanks a ton Baaz :smiley:
Will try it!

Everything worked except for processing the txt document. I created the text document in the same folder that I extracted rhubarb

Sorry. Just realised that I didnt specify the paths correctly. It worked now though. Thanks again

Thats great! :smiley_cat:🤌 ‌ ‌ ‌
