I've had a frustrating few days trying to work around how HORRIBLE the sound controls are in AS2. Playback is inconsistent on different computers and the sound.position value doesn't even update every frame, for GOD KNOWS WHY. If people like this we'll have to consider rebuilding it in AS3, which apparently would solve all the problems. It's just really sad to be so excited about something where the MOST IMPORTANT PART DOESN'T WORK RIGHT.

You can also do direct links to the syncs:

Let me know if that JohnnyUtah sync looks correct out the gate. It works fine on my Mac laptop but on my PC I need to set the offset to +2 for it to look right. The offset control is to the left of the in-game vote bar.

JohnnyUtah's sync worked fine the first time I played it.
Then when I played it again the face stuck like 1/3 of the way through. Same with every time I tried to play it afterwards.

Thanks!

Since so many people are submitting barely done DOT DOT DOT entries, this thread could be a fun place to share semi-interesting stuff! Here's another one I did a piece of that could be fun:

Wouldn't it be funny if a mod locked this thread because it's not in the animators and creators section?
I think it'd be pretty funny.
As for this tool, it looks pretty time-saving. Don't have the time and motivation to test it though.

It works well for me, although occasionally I will get that synchronization problem. But, I found that it can be fixed by starting from the beginning, playing the track, then pausing and bringing the line back to the start again. The sync issue happens once every 5 or 6 plays, and I'm using Safari on a MacIntosh.

By the way, I'm making a lot of progress on one clip =)

This one came out nice! I had to set offset to +3 on my computer to get it lined up.

I just updated it so you can't save without filling in a few keyframes first. If you have selected DOT DOT DOT, it requires 20 keyframes to save, to avoid infinite submissions that just sync "DOT DOT DOT."

Could you update it so we can delete something we saved before we understood how it worked! D'Oh!

or just delete mine, thanks :P

Also... you should have 'em appear in our 'latest shared creations' section.

can we get a delete (or hide) option for that too, please! lawl!!!

Might take another crack at it later when I have some actual time to do it proper!! Fun stuff! :D

What do you think so far

Nice work! QUESTION: Did you put all those default faces in your beginning frames? Otherwise I accidentally did it this morning when I added the offset tool.

Thanks, glad you like it. The syncing around the end is still a little off and I still need to work on the facial expressions but I should be done with the rest of the song later today.

It needs a standard play button, also, I don't know how to describe it, but it feels incomplete.
