Play sound by dragging frame indicator line

Jun 24, 2012 5:18 AM

I'm doing a lot of lip sync in a video in CS4 and can't find a way to play the sound while dragging the frame indicator line along the timeline. Without hearing the exact frame where certain vowels and words start and end it's really time consuming winging it. Any suggestions on settings? Or, can it be done in CS4? I remember that it was possible in older versions of Flash. Thanks in advance.


I posted this in "General" but got no reply. So, I thought I'd try here.

    If the sound is in a layer in the timeline, select the first key frame for that sound and set the sync to "stream". Then you can scrub the sound using the playback head.

    When you click on the keyframe that holds the sound, go to the Properties window. You'll see a section for sound. The sync options will be there.
