Sing a long bouncing ball? How would i do this?

Ok I have a concept for a music video where one of those white balls bounces along the screens to the song with the lyrics. Since AE is crap for audio syncing how would I complete such a task? I'm currently using Vegas 10 as my video editor, thanks

Unfortunately this is one of those things that is very time and labor intensive. There's no way around doing it manually. If you search The Cow for "karaoke", you will fins some expressions to help some, but there's just no way for the computer to know the timing and placement of the lyrics.

There are some stand-alone apps that may also be useful, but then you might have issues trying to customize the look exactly like you want it.

You can use Soundkeys

to generate keyframes that can then trigger the animation for your ball.
