This is the first time I've needed to render with sound (I have titles on a text layer over the action), and I was actually able to figure out how to do that. When I Ram previewed, the action was jerky and even froze for a second. Then the sound went out of sync. Needless to say, that's how the rendered clip looked, too.

Is there a way to fix this? I'd ask what's going on, but I probably wouldn't understand the answer.

Thanks,
Pat

What version of AE, what OS and what codec is the clip with audio?

In addition to Ted's clarifying questions, I'm going to add this:

If you've timed out your AE animation to sound effects, and all is good after repeated RAM Previews, forget the audio. No fooling. Just render video.

Bring the AE animation into a video editing application along with the sound effect files, sync everything up in it, get the audio levels right, and you're good to go. Export for final delivery from the editing application.

You have a LOT more control over audio in an editing app than you do in AE.

Hi Dave,

Sorry for taking so long. I imported a shorter clip and applied the animation. When I exported that as Quicktime, the clip still played all jerky and with out-of-sync sound. I don't understand the electronics behind things like this, but thanks to you I went ahead and imported it into Final Cut without the sound track and pasted it on top of the existing footage. It played perfectly in FC and when I exported the whole project to Quicktime. Thanks!

Pat

I'm pretty sure it's CS6, OSX, and ProRes422.

Clear cache - I remember that fixed some audio issues once in CS6. However, Dave's advice is the way to go- render the video and sync up audio in an editing package.
