Is there a way to trigger a talking animation for moviemaking purposes? I know it's in some of the emotes but I'm looking for a steady lip-moving animation that can be bound to a key and synced to audio old-jackie-chan-movie style. :)
I'm not quite clear on what you want, you mean OUTSIDE of a cutscene?
It would be for filming movies. So say I want someone to "talk" their player would press this button that would play a talking animation, and I would add sound over it later. I want an animation for recording purposes.
I personally do not know how that could be done but maybe it could be one of your characters taunts?

Play around with animations.cfg. The way to ensure the mouth moves without moving the body is to set the taunt animation to the stance you want the character to be in while talking. Then simply taunt repeatedly (which moves the mouth, because the model is talking while taunting).
