Lip synch got out of synch

I imported 5 WAV files, and successfully lip synched them all to the solo puppet/actor. Character Animator did a fabulous job synching the WAV files.

I then turned off the microphone, and recorded a face track into the recording. I played and recorded at 0.75x speed, to make sure I didn't miss anything. Then reset play and record back to 1.0x.

When I played the new recording with facial movements, the lip synch is totally hosed up now. I deleted the head movement track, and the lip synch did not reset back to when it was beautiful.

[1] What did I do wrong?

[2] When I go into the Project > History window, I can go back in time to see the lip synch working. How can I save the project at that point in time?

Here is an update.

I created the WAV files in Adobe Audition. 

I can listen to the WAV file outside of Character Animator, and it plays flawlessly.

When I import the WAV file, Character Animator creates 2 or 3 skips in a short recording (1-2 minutes).

The skips that have been created by Character Animator are what puts the Lip Synch out of synch. The synched lips move as if there were no skips in the audio file. And as the playhead moves down the timeline, each additional skip in the audio puts the lip synch farther and farther out of synch.

Any suggestions?

Additional notes. The entry by Nathan and by Tim are both the same person. Sorry, I didn't realize I used a different login.

I have found that when importing WAV files, Character Animator ALWAYS inserts skip artifacts in the audio.

The only way I can keep the audio and lip synch working together, is to do 100% of the audio recording in Character Animator.

Unfortunately, that is not going to work for me. I will need to use lots and lots of imported WAV files in order to get my project done. I am at a loss as to what to do.

I have tried appending one wave file onto another and another in Audition, and saving it as one single WAV file--THEN importing it. The importing process still creates numerous skip artifacts, which screws up the lip synch.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
