voicing

just wondering, how do you record your characters voices so that they talk when they are supposed to? do you play your cartoon and record while you are watching it? or do you record your sound first and creat your cartoon based on that then lip synch it? it owuld help me out a lot to hear how some of you do it ;D

Music can be added after the fact unless the story calls for really close synchronization to the beat. But dialog is best recorded before any animation because it requires such tight sync. If you start with the dialog tracks you then can adjust your art to match either using manual or automated syncing techniques. -JK
