I have a 52 second long animation as it says in adobe animate though I've timed it and it comes up with a totally different number many seconds off. Also I change something after playing the thing then I play it again and the audio or video is out of time. How do I fix this? I soend forver fixing a single bit only to go back and see that the timing has changed and that what I had before was correct.

First thing to do is select the audio in the layer of your timeline and make sure it's set to Stream in the Properties Panel. By default, it's set to Event which means it AnCC send it off to your machine's sound card and let's it play independently of the timeline. On the other hand, Stream behavior embeds the audio into the timeline and forces the animation to keep up.

Also worth mentioning that playback inside AnCC isn't a fixed frame format. It will always try to maintain the frame rate based on the document FPS settings but if complicated animation is present, lot's of objects moving, alpha, and basically processor-intensive motion taking place, your system's resources may not be able to keep up with the frame rate you intended. Best bet is to export to video format to get a true sense of the animation based on the document's frame rate.

Dear _keyframer. I have the same problem, except I created my animation in Photoshop. Sometimes my graphics and sound are in synch, and sometimes, not. I have posted to YouTube and when I watch it on my pc, it is timed nicely, but when I watch it on my phone it is out of synch. I don't see this same tendency when I watch other animation. What is happening? Thank you.

In Photoshop (the animation was made in Photoshop) when I go to 'properties' there are no 'stream' or 'event' options. How do I set to 'stream'?

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post (like this one has already been moved) if it helps you get responses.

That's a screenshot of your Photoshop timeline - I'd ask this question in the Photoshop community. Unless you are exporting an image sequence from P'shop and importing into Animate and trying to sync sound...???

That is exactly what I am trying to do. Export my image sequence into Animate to synch the sound. I tried and tried....but I guess I don't know what I am doing. Every time I try to import, Animate shuts off. Can you help?
