Unit II Lesson IV --Create an animation PT III add text to animation

From KNILT

Introduction

When you add speech to your animation you need to considered carefully what you will say and pace out the dialogue so that the characters aren't talking over each other. Watch the tutorial below, notice in the first dialogue between the character there is a lot of text on one scene, then note how the pace changes giving each character an opportunity to speak.
