I'm trying to morph a voice into a second one, for an anticipation movie (there's a brief resume of the movie in the beginning of a previous question I answered about how to make futuristic cars here : Futuristic cars )
The protagonist can change his appearance, and choose his voice. So, he's in front of a mirror, speak and by changing parameters he change his voice to another : his alter ego in virtual reality.
In the movie, there's 2 actors, the real and the virtual. The first one's got medium voice, the second got very low-deep voice. During the shooting they just say "Test...Test...Test.... Test" (4 times), and the idea is to morph from one to another,
This is what I (unsuccessfully) tried :
- Perfect alignement of source material
- Of course crossfade doesn't work : we hear 2 voices
- Using Melodyne, I tried to progressively pitch down the first and pitch up the second using the formant tool to make them natural, and tuning them to be in unison.
No, Voices are too sensitive, we perceive that it's not natural...
Any Ideas ? I don't own Kyma and don't have time to learn it, but If a Kyma user want to try it, I can send the 2 files ;-)
If I can't find solutions then I will do the opposite : making them artificial but I thought it was a good (not so obvious) question.
