    Um well I want to have a phonetic mouth animation but all the tutorials are for adobe after effects I mean yeah I could get the free trail but that would be a waste of money from whatever program I use, I just want to know how to make a Photonetic mouth animation without Adobe after effects (and gimp).


    I dont know what your resourcess are. But, unless you have a sort of image editing program. you could go with some sort of paper cut outs or stickers. Or a head for each mouth sound.

    Often Toturials for some software may be somewhat usable in other software.

I’ll use it again in future brickfilms, but I’m definitely reconsidering the amount of dialogue in future videos. Here’s an example with Photoshop:
