Di-O-Matic Announces Voice-O-Matic for Autodesk Maya and Softimage XSI

Montréal, Canada - Di-O-Matic, a developer of character animation software, announced the release of Voice-O-Matic for Autodesk Maya and Softimage XSI.
Voice-O-Matic has been a leading lip synchronization extension for Autodesk 3ds Max for more than years, providing clients with an approach to getting some of the most well-known CG characters -- including Spiderman, Batman, Superman, and Sonic -- to talk and entertain audiences worldwide.
Based on the same underlying technology as the award-winning extension for 3ds Max, Di-O-Matic is engineering Voice-O-Matic to operate in Autodesk Maya and Softimage XSI workflow environments.
Maya and XSI users will soon be able to automate the lip sync process of their productions with Voice-O-Matic, which uses an intelligent phonetic engine to cleanly break down audio files. Voice-O-Matic automatically assigns phonemes to give voices to characters in little time. Voice-O-Matic delivers automatic lip synchronization for any type of character setup in virtually any language, including English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. 
Voice-O-Matic (Maya Edition) and (XSI Edition) are currently in the final development stage. The suggested retail price is set at $349.
