Based on this tutorial -

- I'm trying to animate a photo of two people to have a simple conversation:

Person A speaks
Person B speaks
Person A speaks

I have two separate audio tracks (one for each person in the photo). I have also created two split effects (one for each mouth).

Here is the problem: when I click on ONE of the audio tracks and convert it to key frames and then copy the key frames into the split effect, the character's mouth syncs up with BOTH audio tracks. That is, Person A's mouth moves in sync with both Person A AND Person B's audio track.

My question is: How can I animate this photo so that each audio track is only linked to one mouth animation?

Thanks in advance!

That doesn't really make sense if you have 2 audio tracks. If you can save back to CS6 and collect, zip the files and upload(last icon in the reply dialogue), I would take a look at the project.

Otherwise do a screen grab or capture of what is happening with any changed layers twirled open.
