    How can i sync music with animation?

    Dash2005
      I have searched long o nthis topic and I cannot see a perfect solution.

      Music loops nicely if set as a seperate movie clip with the loop feature turned on.

      Calculating the length of an animation and adjusting frames per second so it is the same length as the music buy recording the music at a certain bpm does not seem to work properly.

      What is the best way to have an animation move i ntime to the music and stay in sync forever. Setting sound to stream always results in a nasty gap at the end of the music and the animation runs at varying speeds from preview to browser.

      Does nayone have a tried and tested solution, I have seen some good examples of this so i know it is possible.

          hard to understand why setting your sound to stream causes the animation to vary speed. In fact that
          is the opposite of what Stream does - stream sounds are embedded into the timeline forcing the
          animation to be in sync with it and sacrificing frames in the event the animation becomes to heavy.
          I have been streaming sounds to animation for years as well as thousands of other animators with
          success. Can you provide more info and possibly the FLA?
