About Sound Playback and Display

By default, the soundtrack of your project is represented by rectangular sound clips spanning from their In point to their Out point, with the name of their audio file displayed in it. However, there are different ways to display and preview the audio in your project, all of which can help you synchronize the action in your animatic with its soundtrack, and vice versa. For example, you can enable audio playback when previewing your animatic, you can enable audio scrubbing, which plays a short part of the soundtrack at the current frame when you move the timeline cursor, or you can even display each sound clip's waveform in the Timeline view, giving you a visual representation of their content.
