I'm trying to do some cartoon lip sync.. I have 8 mouth shapes in a nested comp.. Is there an easy way to switch between the mouth shapes, so only one at a time is displayed?

Scrub the audio layer to find points where the mouth should change. Add markers to the layer at those points. You can even add text descriptions to the markers. Use the markers as both the points at which to add new mouth shapes and to trim the out points of the previous mouth shapes.
