I was wondering if anyone new what are the best practices
when syncing audio with animating flash graphics. Also when
preparing for a flash project that will incorporate syncing audio,
which should come first the animation or the voice over?
always always always ALWAYS do the audio first. It is much
easier to sync graphics to existing audio than to record audio to
go with an existing animation.
The only thoughts that come to mind when talking about sound
syncing a flash file, is to watch the length of the audio in
proportion to the file size of the project. At my work, we did some
really long SWF's, and had some bad sound synching. It seemed to
stem from the fact that the audio is not held strictly to the
frame-based timeline, and the graphics are. Even when it looked
completely synced inside flash (scrubbed correct as well) we still
had to pick a point every couple-hundred frames, and break the
in-flash sync, so that it would be synced on export.
