H there, Is there any way to have a video preview in Audacity...I'm trying to edit audio fx to sync to a video clip...it would nice to be able to hit play then both my audio plays and the video clip Im doing the sounds for to play....Is there a plugin or anything like this...?

Currently Im playing the video clip in quicktime looping then manual timing the
i hit play in audacity to see how the audio & video feel together in sync.

No, and you didn't mention the next obvious problem. You'll need a video editor to put your finished work back into the video. Audacity can play and edit many video formats—more with the FFMpeg add-on, but it will only produce a stand-alone sound file when you get done.
