//This script allows you to create facial animation based on characterSet-channel-presets. You are not limited to blendshapes
//characterSet poses for each letter are written to a scriptNode.
//Drag the script into your shelf directory
//1) Make sure you character has a characterSet or sub-characterSet for all the channels of your face controls.
//2) Make sure that all the channel values are set to their default position!!
//1)type the name of the characterSet you want to use in "create presets -> Select characterSet"
//2)Press OK. (A new scriptnode with the default data is created)
//Assign Visemes:
//1)after the initialisation has been done you can assign poses(visemes) to one or more letters
//(normal and Capital letters allowed)

//Create Speech:
//1)Make sure the characterSet to be used is written in the "create presets -> Select characterSet"
//2)Select the word or sentence of your soundfile by setting your rangeslider so it just fits the range
//3)Type the sentence in the "speech -> type speech" ( the "_" sign is used for neutral pose)
