Although the size limitation is 15MB for business subscribers, it’s not a good idea to upload a file that big for dialogue in GoAnimate.

At a minimum, you’ll need to break up your audio files into individual lines. That’s because only one character can speak at a time within a scene. But we recommend breaking individual characters’ lines into smaller pieces.

If you haven’t already tried out the lip sync function, here’s a quick overview of what your options are.

In order to make your character lip sync, first select the scene where you’d like to add the voice. Click on the appropriate character, and then head directly for the ‘voice’ tab on the left hand side of The Stage. This is where the magic happens…

In the Voice Tab there’s a drop down menu with three options for adding a voice into your scene: File Upload, Mic Recording, and Text-To-Voice.

In File Upload, you can upload an audio file to GoAnimate by using the “Import” button in the Full Video Maker studio. Simply hit browse to locate your file, select, and hit “Add Voice.” Your character will now speak its line, and will lip sync.

With Mic Recording, you can record dialogue directly into your GoAnimate video with your microphone.

Or if you’re shy, you can use the Text-To-Voice option. Just type in your dialogue and choose from a variety of voices and accents to help tell your story well.
