Can't hear sound track in the time line to sync w/the puppet tool
on Sep 27, 2009 at 9:19:00 pm

Imported a .dng photo file into AE CS4.

Recorded some VO in Soundtrack Pro and exported it as .mov then imported it into CS4.

If I dbl. click the .mov sound track in CS4 a little sound track window appears and the VO plays fine.

If I drag the .mov sound track file down to the time line under the .dng photo it does not play.

What I want to do is use the puppet tool to move the dogs mouth to the VO sound track but unless I can hear the sound track I can't do that.

What am I doing wrong?

Unless you're RAM previewing your composition, After effects won't output any sound.

In general, doing anything in AE to sync with sound isn't that easy. My usual plan of attack is to get very familiar with the audio file and the sound waveform. Remember the lines and what they look like on the waveform, then animate to that.
