I too can not get PapatoLOR to work in win 7. When I run the executable, I get a dialogue box that labeled "Unable to find INI file" and the error inside the box states "The INI can not be written to the mouth folder. This program must close" and I click "OK" and it closes. What can I do Bob?

This program was QD quick and dirty. At the time I thought people may want to share their mouth settings. i can change it to registry pretty quickly. that is after kids are in bed.

Hi Robert

Which program could you not get to work. The public program Papagayo or my tool program PapagayoToLOR? My program should give you an error message box if there is a problem.

Do you mean dragged the unzipped Papagayo files into a folder? Please remember that program is OLD (before vista) and not written by me. Its public source written in a language called Python.

You may need to grant all permissions to the MOUTH folder which is under the program files in the directory structure.

At work I was reading on a phone size screen so I didnt catch it all. Presuming you have Papagayo installed. You will have a mouth folder under the exe. Grant the windows user write permission to that folder. FYI I am guessing you have not run the Papagayo program yet as it would also need authority to that folder.

I had been running Papagayo for a while now and have been creating .dat files. Being that I am an administrator on this computer I had only checked the permisions for me. I went to the "users" permissions and added write permission and that seems to have corrected the problem. Thank you for the help and for your sharing of your convertor.

Sorry Bob I didn't get back to this thread. The LOR forum NEVER tells me I have a response to my forum questions or responses.

Anyway...here is the .exe error log I get. Sorry...it's long;

This error is definitely from Python so its not from the program I have posted. In another post I just saw that Tim Fischer know python. I have not worked with that computer language. Maybe we can get his attention for some help. The Papagayo program works fine for me so I am thinking that its an install problem. All I did was extract all the files into the Program files (x86) folder. You will also need to be sure that the data files it creates under the exe have all permissions granted.

Thanks for the response.

I may not be doing something right on my end. I took it from the zip folder and put in all in a folder under my documents. After reading your post, I moved it to the x86 folder. It did say something about permissions, but allowed me to continue. Still no joy :-(

I think I missed something... I have installed the Papagayo program and created the voice file (.dat). I load the exported voice file in the Papagayo To LOR program.

What values are expected in the channel configuration? I tried using the unit and channel number (example: "02.1", "02.2", "02.3" ). It took the values and allowed me to export the voice to a LOR clipboard.

When I load and paste from the new clipboard in Sequence Editor, it is blank.

I found the info in another post. The program works great! I have created mouth images from my display and loaded them into Papagayo. Bob, thanks for a great program!

I converted my MP3 to a wav format. I created several different voices for the singing parts. I have entered the text and edited since papagayo has problems with punctuation. However, when I do the breakdown, it starts at the beginning of the music and not at the start of the voices. What am I doing wrong?

Sounds like you are doing it right. Papagayo does not attempt to line up the words with the voices. You slide the words around to line them up. Listen to each one and move it and stretch it to the right place.

If you have a lot of dead no voice space in your song.. then you may want to edit the .wav and create a version just for Papagayo use. However.. this means you must paste the output of Papagayo to LOR into the exact right spot. Which is not that easy to do. Use the trim leading option to help with this.

I'll give this a try. Do you happen to have the Holidaycoro pumpkin faces saved some place?

I thought Bob had included the HolidayCoro face movements into Papagayo?

Sorry I dont recall HC having pumpkin faces. I have a program which extracts the faces from the old animation in the config file. I will try to do it this weekend if someone can point me to the config.

I'm not very musically inclined, so this might take me some time to do this. I am wondering if I might be a little easier for me to break the song down into smaller parts based on the singers? I can take the smaller files and stitch them together. I can also remove the instrumental sections. This might cut down on having to move sections around.

Yes you can do pieces at a time. I print the lyrics. Using a audio editor I take one line or one verse at a time (cut off all before and after and make a copy). import into Papaguyo and do the necessary adjustments (important: adjust the beginning and end points BEFORE fixing the movements). Save and import into into Bob's converter then paste into LOR. Same for next piece etc. with a little practice it gets prety easy, thanks to the great work of Bob.

New video on using the translator program

Thanks Bob, That cleared up my confusion as to what the 2nd and 3rd channel columns were in the translator. Great job.

Bob, I appreciate the work you have done with the tutorials on Papagayo, but it's just not getting through my thick head. There is good news, though. I've been messing with the singing sequences that I have purchased from Holiday coro so much to fit them in my current light sequences, that I have picked up how to manually input the mouth animations. I'm currently working on Rob Zombie's version of "Boogie Man." I'm making what seems to be quick progress on it and am about 75% or so done. It might or might not take longer than using Papagayo, but I'm getting the work done. Thanks again for your work.

Need a little help here. I cant get the PapagayoToLOR program to launch without giving me the following error........

Im also having major issues with words being deleted from the end of the song by the time I work my way down to them. I already cut the songs into 3 different 1 min sections. Do I need to cut it down even further for Papagayo to handle it correctly.

OK so moving right along :P I went and got the original installer of Papagayo off the net. Version1.2 I think. Installed it then took the contents of the mod zip folder from the above link and replaced all the contents of the original install program file in C:programfiles with the mod files. Tried launching the papagayo to LOR sofware again and woohooo this time it loaded. So one step closer to the edge I labeled the mouth movements 1-5 then went to load papagayo exported voice and get the following error...............

What in the world does that mean? Help Please. :o

It must be getting close to Halloween ! Sorry Papagayo is old and finicky. Maybe someone here who knows Python can fix it.

I did mange to correct two bugs in my program. PapagayoToLOR.exe Now will
