Activity Forums Apple Motion audio sync issue

    has anybody else discovered if Motion looses audio sync after some seconds?
    Seems it plays back audio too fast – even the audio Waveforms are longer than audible in the timeline.
    So I guess I have to rely on the Waveform?

    Depends on the system speed but yes audio sync is not a strong suit of motion.

    Should work on a dual 2Ghz G5 w. 2,5GB ram and 1.8 TB X-Raid array – or I have to say creating motion design in Motion will have to stick to silent productions…

    Well it’s Motion graphics not Motion sound. Sound is equally poor in AFX, Shake, Combustion etc.

    Does it lose sync with a RAM preview?

    RAM preview is much better but honestly audio is something I’d not put at the top of the list of Motion excellence. Timings and sync should be worked out in your NLE.
