“Papagayo” is a lip-syncing program designed to line up phonemes (mouth shapes) with the actual recorded sound of actors speaking.
Papagayo was originally developed and released as open-source by Lost Marble. The version presented here is maintained by Morevna Project and have following differences:
- Support for various languages (English, Dutch, Finnish, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian).
- Support for various phoneme sets (Preston-Blair or Flemming-Dobbs).
This shows how to use Compositions feature to test how well your artwork is prepared for animation. In this example I will be testing various mouth shapes prepared for lipsync.
Many people love Papagayo-NG because of its support for various languages. But what if you want to synchronize text in a language that not supported yet? Also, things might get even more complicated if you get a phrase with words from different language (i.e. some English-speaking character says word in Russian). This is where Pidgin […]

In the context of our work on the new episode of Morevna we have asked our developer Ivan Mahonin to implement an integration of Synfig Studio with Papagayo lipsync software. This feature is ready now and available in the latest development builds of Synfig. We have recorded a quick video tutorial to demonstrate it in […]
Following by a previous tutorial about making lipsync using Papagayo, here is another one showing how to apply lipsync data to Blender model. We have made a special version of official Papagayo Lipsync addon, which implements a special approach for adding lipsync animation to your models. With this approach you use a Pose Library to […]
Terry Hancock from the Lunatics project made a tutorial showing how to use our build of Papagayo to create lipsync animation. Enjoy!
For a long time we have received many requests to provide Papagayo packages for Windows. I am aware about the Papagayo 2.0 bump from original developers, and I am considering to port the changes of our custom version of Papagayo into their version as soon as possible. Unfortunately, right now I’m busy with other priorities, […]
I am happy to announce that we have made a small update to our Papagayo packages, which fixes the issue with FPS settings value. In previous versions FPS value was internally messed up when you load a new audio file, which was leading to incorrect syncronization results. This update have no other changes and is recommended […]
