    Grouping Question

    Hey Guys 

    I'm grouping 2 cams one hvx and one "clamshell" cctv cam with audio. The CCTV cam starts out fine and in sync, however every 5 seconds the audio drifts a few seconds and I have to insert an edit and shift everything a few frames to match. Is there any other way to do this or does it just have to be taken slowly (watching all footage, adding edits and moving the footage accordingly to line with the a cam)?

    Tough one! Seems like it has to be taken slowly, if both cameras recorded audio it may help to display the waveforms to catch up the sync drifts.

    Try use Autosyncing.

    I Think that different frame rate and samle rate may influence the sync drift.


    From MC help menu:

    Autosyncing is often used for projects in which picture and sound were captured separately

    •  You can create only one autosynced subclip at a time. You cannot autosync numerous pairs of audio and video clips simultaneously. 

    •  If the audio and video clips do not have matching source or auxiliary timecode, you must establish common sync frames (clapper bord, door slam etc.). To do this, mark In points (or Out points) on both clips before you autosync. When you autosync using this method, the whole clip is taken into the subclip. 

    •  If you autosync clips of different lengths, the longer clip is truncated to the length of the shorter clip; video clips override audio clips.
