FaceFX Documentation and support
Notice: The analyze command is only available in versions of FaceFX that permit batch processing. This feature is not available in FaceFX Studio Professional.
The analyze command generates animations from audio files. The analyze command is the interface for batch processing animations. Like all commands, it can be issued from the FaceFX command line or the DOS prompt via the exec command.
If a text file is present in the WAV file directory with the same name as the WAV file, the text will be used in the analysis by default.
|-au||-audio||Yes||Specifies a single audio file to analyze|
|-dir||-directory||Yes||Specifies an entire directory to analyze. The group name is determined by the directory name. Can be used with the -recurse flag.|
|-g||-group||Yes||Specifies the group that the animation should be imported to. Used only when analyzing a single file with the -audio flag. By default or when analyzing one or more directories, the group is specified by the folder name.|
|-an||-anim||Yes||Specifies the animation name. By default, the animation name is taken from the WAV file name. Within a group, all animation names must be unique. As a result, the analysis command will fail if an edited animation with the same name already exists in the group unless the -overwriteedits flag is used.|
|-l||-language||Yes||Specifies the language to use.|
|-r||-recurse||No||Used with the -dir flag to recurse to all subdirectories when analyzing audio files.|
|-ow||-overwriteedits||No||Used to specify that the analyze command should overwrite existing animations even if they have been hand-edited. Default is false.|
|-nt||-notext||No||Audio file(s) will be analyzed without text.|
|-aa||-analysisactor||Yes||Specifies the analysis actor to use.|
|-teh||-textencodinghint||Yes||Specifies a hint to help detect the appropriate character set. Very short files (one or two words) can load incorrectly without a hint. ”Autodetect” is default, or use any of the possible ICU Character Sets .|
|-ie||-ignoreerrors||No||ignores errors from individual files during batch processing. Only used in conjunction with -directory.|
|-m||‑modifiedsourcefilesonly||No||Only analyzes files that have new or modified audio or text files.|
|-kuc||-keepusercurves||No||if the animation already exists and contains owned by user curves, those curves are restored in the newly analyzed animation, even if they overwrite analysis curves; used only in conjunction with -overwriteedits|
|-smt||-skipifmissingtext||No||skips files that do not have a matching .txt file|
