The Lip-sync feature in Vixen helps to facilitate sequencing singing faces.

(NOTE: In the section beginning at 0:50, I make several references to the “software” not supporting a Pixel Matrix while pointing at the Vixen3 Display Configuration.
I realize after posting the video that this will likely cause some confusion, “software” in this case means the LipSync module code, not Vixen3 itself).

Please note, the desktop recording software was unable to keep up when I tried recording the previews in videos #2 and #3 so the LipSync effect does not look as if it is working correctly even though it was.
