View Full Version : Lipsync- fine in LW, not in comp...

11 November 2003, 04:44 PM
I'm working on finalizing a lip sync project for school. I've got everything how I want it, looks great in a lw preview with the sound file integrated in LW. So I render it out, then when I get into AfterEffects to comp it, the sound is way off where it should be. Any ideas?

btw- this is my first lip sync:)

This might no be it, but are you sure the frame rate is the same with the sound and the footage you exported from LightWave?

Sound doesn't have a framerate :)

Have you checked "Play at exact rate" in Layout's Preferences - General Options?

Got if figured out...

I typically animate at 24fps because that's what I'm used to. When you import an image sequence into After Effects, you designate the import footage's frame rate. Mine had defaulted at 30 and I just needed to change it to 24.
