    animating figure to music: Flash or After Effects?

    paul_james123 Level 1

      Hi All,

      I need to have little figures dancing in time to a music soundtrack. Each figure will be a child movie clip of the main movie.


      I have done a rough version of this in Flash (using cue points in the soundtrack to make a movement happen) but there are some things that make it difficult to time the movements exactly.


      Also: For the dancing part of the movie, I don't need interactivity.


      I can keep working at it in Flash to make it better but I'd like to know: Is After Effects generally considered better for tight syncronization with a soundtrack? So, IOW: I would use the puppet tool in AE, timing movements to music exactly and then export as a FLV and import these movie clips into Flash.


      Thanks for your help.
