How do people here go about check sync?
I work a lot with animation and either get an OMF from the editor or Tracklay cut the dialogue for me. This would all be done to a crappy sized H264 Quicktime. I use it to mix and review a show (using a Mojo to a CRT TV.
Now I get a DNxHD Quicktime from the online editors here and play this back on my computer monitor (removing the QT offset) and watch a show before putting it to tape to ensure I'm perfectly in sync and check for any final picture changes.
Sadly I can't watch back 24p from the HDCAM-SR deck as my TV can't cope and this work around has convinced management not to fork out for some nice HD monitors for the mix studios.
I appreciate that sync is pretty easy to check with live action, but I've come to learn that in animation it can be fairly subjective especially when it's traditional animation and not photo-realistic along the lines of Pixar.
I'm fairly happy with this workflow but I'm curious how other people check for sync, if they do at all?
