you export it out of papagayo into a clipbaord file, you then load the clipbaord in sequencer and paste to your channels. if you set it up correctly it will go smooth and the channels will lay out properly. If not you will have to move the channel assignments around a bit or copy and paste the individual channels to the proper channel string.

Ok I got Papagayo to LOR and I exported to LOR clipboard, into the sequence editor I tryed many times to paste with no success, I'm not sure about if I'm doing it well when I opened the Papagayo to LOR.

Can someone help me on how to setup the Papagayo to LOR table for my actual faces channels:

1ch. top eye

2ch. botton eye

3ch. top mouth

4ch. middle mouth

5 ch.big mouth

6 ch. round mouth

7ch.botton mouth

The numbering should start with the first mouth channel so I renumbered them

1ch. top mouth

2ch. middle mouth

3 ch.big mouth

4 ch. round mouth

5ch.botton mouth

Put in the below numbers. When you paste... it should always be into the top mouth channel numbered 1 here but 3 in your post.

Also, in SE create a fixed timing grid for .04 and select it. Then in your paste mode on the left panel select paste by cell.

Your channels are like this. Be sure you paste the clipboard into top lip channel. (not eyes... which are not part of papagayo)

The Visualizer lagging is a fault noticed by a lot of people, something in the way it encodes the video I guess, but it's a known problem.

I've run papagayo and exported the voice file. When I open Papagayo to LOR and try to load the papgayo exported voice file I receive an error "object reference not set to an instance of an object" nothing loads to format the channels as shown in Bob's video to subsequently send to LOR clipboard. What am I doing wrong???

Unable to recreate that error. Please be sure that you have permissions set to allow write to the papagayo folder. Please try it again and take a screen snap of the error and settings and PM it to me.

The picture set and channels should be entered before you try to select a file.

Cheers TJ Is there anyway to sort it I have a brand new laptop with i5-460m processor,hd led graphics and 6 gb memory I thought that would run it ok

Sorry Dig, it isnt a matter of hardware.. you could be running a Cray and it'd still do it.. Only way to see what it really looks like, is to run the sequence thru real lights. Saturday I was over at John Slade's place, we were looking at this very thing and the Visualizer lag isnt across every channel or element either, only some of them, so skewing the audio forwards or backwards wont fix it.

Would you be able to share your sequence or video it? We could then see if the lag is related at all to the pasted voice.
