This review covers Magpie 2.04

I've been using Magpie for many years now. I like it for a variety of reasons. Not only can you use it to scrub out sound at any framerate (including 29.97 fps for video sync), but you can build "puppets" in Photoshop to give you a preview of the phonemes you've picked out.

So, after you decide that it looks like frame 5 is an "EE" mouth shape, and frame 10 is an "oo" mouth shape, you can hit play and see a preview animation as you work it out!

You can make your puppet as simple or complex as you want (just add layers) or you can taylor it to fit Magpie's voice recognition mouth shapes.

When you are finished you can print out an exposure sheet with the mouth shapes listed frame by frame.

This is not a "here's the voice, give me the mouth shapes" tool, though you'll find much help with the "recognize" feature. This is for serious animators who need to map out voices so that they can focus on the "acting" part.
