Playblast audio off<Solved>

I'm using Windows 10 Maya 2018 and when I playblast my animations I get different audio sync for every type of program I use to open the .avi file. Windows media has a blurry image, quicktime has different audio timing, and the "movies and tv" Windows program will never loop correctly and the audio starts in the middle.

Does anybody have a good recommendation for a reliable video player/codecs to view my playblasts? I want to get the lip sync right but I don't think the current setup is going to work.

I wouldn't encode to avi, use QT H.264.  That would be the first thing I would try.  If that doesn't solve the problem, i'll do some more digging.

Thank you Ryan! Using the Quicktime option with H.264 codec worked great.

I seemed to get slightly zippier playback in windows media player compared to quicktime player for anybody looking for the same info.

Thanks again!

Glad it worked for you TaiBo!

(SORRY FOR CAPS LOCK) I WOULD RECOMMEND VLC PLAYER AS WELL VS USING WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER.  ITS MUCH MORE ROBUST.
