I'm working on an animated feature, where the work in being done overseas. (russia) dialog is recorded and edited here in the US and sent to the animator for lip sync. right now we're viewing the animation in avi files. the final renders will be Tiff files, which will be imported to premier or final cut and converted to 29.97 ntsc. SO how do i RE SYNC the audio to the newly assembled animation? The only thing I can think of is to have the russian team create a blank frame up front with a corresponding beep on the sound track file.

The best way is to combine the Tiffs and Audio in Animation Master. That way you get the Audio to exactly match with the correct frames.

Your system of the blank frame and synched beep should work. However, normally it is necessary to `jiggle` the sound track a few frames to get it to `look` in synch anyway so I don`t think you have a problem. Just match up the first frame of audio to the first obvious frame of the characters dialogue and shift the audio until it appears right. This is how editing has been done on all animation I`ve worked on. I hope I correctly understood your question . ;)

If the avi they are syncing to was at 30fps and is time length identical,
you should have no problem aligning it in Premier.

If you already have a fully sync'd 30fps sound track, just download
the free Audacity 1.2 (Windows, Mac OSX and Linux) and use it to
change the speed by 99.9%.

In case you are interested, the method used to convert 24 fps film to
25 fps PAL, the mian method used is just to play the movie at 25 fps
and the sound track time is shrunk by 4% (usually done by varying
playback speed on a DAT sound recorder.

Audacity can do better then this becuase it allows you to change the
tempo without changing pitch.
