Chapter 9. Designing with Audio > Creating Audio Sync Points

Creating Audio Sync Points

As you design, it’s often much easier to ensure that graphic elements are properly timed to music or narration by using sync points. An audio sync point is nothing more than a marker applied to a layer or composition (we often create an empty adjustment or a null layer to hold them all). Typically, sync points (Figure 9.3) are added to indicate where different events are supposed to occur based on cues provided in the audio track. For example, a motion graphics designer would mark where the music reaches its peak to match the big reveal of the graphics. Similarly, a character animator would add markers to indicate areas for lip sync.

Figure 9.3. Soundbooth projects and their markers will seamlessly import into After Effects and Premiere projects.
