Introducing Audio2Gesture.

New to Machinima is an addition to the digital human suite of tools with the introduction of Audio2Gesture. Audio2gesture is built upon a neural network trained to generate body motion that is derived entirely from an audio source. A2G can be run in Machinima as an “Offline pipeline” that can be re-targeted to your own character and outputs usdskel anim clips to be composed in the sequencer. Or it can be run with the Streaming Audio pipeline for use with runtime Speech generation solutions.

Hey, I tested rendering in RTX real-time with CC4 character.

Speed is very slow with this new realease:

Old 2022.1.3 is so much faster:

This has nothing to do with audio 2 gesture :)
All animation comes from iclone8.
