When I record with puppet tool there is no audio playback/preview. I want to use this to synchronize character mouth movements with voice over.
As far as I understand(Re: Puppet tool, live animation, sound file doesn't play - why?) this is a bug in versions after CC 2014.
I am wondering when can I expect this to be fixed and, more importantly, what can I do now? Because I can't seem to be able to open CC 2017 project files with CC 2014 version or older in which this bug is not present.
Thanks for taking the time to plunge into this little problem and any feedback on this will be greatly appreciated.
Yep. unfortunately this bug is not fixed yet. if you file a bug report maybe we can up the votes on this. Feature Request/Bug Report Form. in the meantime you will have to make do. CC2014 is the last version where it worked.
to open you CC2017 in CC2014-15, you can save a copy as CC (13) under file->save as
