About A, E, I, O U, What are this?

It was a symbolic device coined by Frederick III (1415–1493) and historically used as a motto by the Habsburgs. Frederick habitually signed buildings such as Burg Wiener Neustadt or Graz Cathedral as well as his tableware and other objects with the vowel graphene.

How A.E.I.O.U Works in Animation

Animating lip sync can really frighten the beginning animator, and rightly so because it is one of the most difficult techniques for an animator to master. Live-action people have it easy; they just point the cameras at the actors and ask them to speak.

Facial animation has a lot more than just moving the mouth. When a character speaks dialogue, the shape and position of the mouth are perhaps 10–20% of the total effect. Much more important to the audience is the movement of the body and head, as well as the expression in the face and eyes. For the purposes of this article, however, we will start the process with the mouth.

The Eight Basic Mouth Positions

First, you must understand how the mouth moves when it speaks. Dozens of different mouth shapes are made during the course of normal speech. Animators usually boil these down to a handful of standard shapes that are used repeatedly. Depending on the style of animation, some animators get away with as few as three or four shapes, and some may use dozens. For most situations, you can get away with approximately eight basic mouth positions. These eight positions usually provide adequate coverage and give you the ability to animate most dialogue effectively.

It is the closed mouth which is used for consonants made by the lips, which specifies the M, B, and P sounds. Typically this can be made by pushing the open jaw to pose into negative territory to close the mouth. In this position, the lips are usually their normal width. For added realism, you could mix in an additional shape, to get the lips slightly pursed, for sounds following an "ooo" sound, as in the word room.

This is a closed mouth used for consonants made by the lips, specifically the M, B, and P sounds.

The mouth which opens with the teeth closed is a common shape and used for consonants made within the mouth, specifically sounds made by C, D, G, K, N, R, S, TH, Y, and Z. All these sounds can also be made with the teeth slightly open, particularly in fast speech.

The mouth is opened with the teeth closed.

This is used for the wide-open vowels, such as A and I. It is essentially the same as the fundamental shape for an open jaw.

This is used for wide-open vowels, such as A and I.

This is used primarily for the vowel E, but it can also be used for C, K, or N during the fast speech.

This is used when mouth wide open in an elliptical shape which is used for the vowel O. It is created by mixing together an open jaw and the "oooh" sound. Sometimes, particularly when the sound is at the end of a word, you can overlap this shape to close the mouth.

The mouth wide open in an elliptical shape

This is used for the vowel O, which shows the mouth smaller but more pursed which is used for the "oooo" sound, as in food, and for the vowel U. It is one of the fundamental mouth shapes.

This is used for D or TH sounds when preceded by A or I.

It is essentially an open jaw with the tongue moved up against the top teeth. If the speech is particularly rapid, this shape may not be necessary.

The mouth wide open with the tongue against the teeth

This is reserved for the letter L which can be used for D or TH sounds the bottom lip which has tucked under the teeth to make the sound of the letters F or V is a highly pronounced speech which is necessary for the shape could also be replaced with more casual or rapid speech. This shape is one of the extra shapes modeled previously.

The bottom lip has tucked under the teeth to make the sound of the letters F or V.
