Thread: Vegas 8.0: Audio's out of sync

  1. Default Vegas 8.0: Audio's out of sync

    Alright, it's amateur hour here.

    I have captured some interview footage, but the audio is out of sync.

    Can I tweak the audio to get it in sync?

    Or is my problem more foundational i.e I have got to re-capture properly?

    All comments/abuse etc. appreciated

    OK, let's start with the basics . . .

    You should have a 2 tracks:

    One Video Track

    and

    One Audio Track

    Yes? Are they aligned? Meaning, are they both perfectly vertically aligned thru' their length with each other? If they are bot 10minutes long do they start and stop at 0:00 and 10:00?

    The audio and video tracks are pretty damn close in length.

    To the naked eye, they do look perfectly aligned.

    It is like the video and audio are .2 seconds off the whole way, if that makes sense.

    Cheers,

    Miggy

    OK, post a screen grab here, zoomed way into the ENDs of the Video and Audio and let's see - yeah? Also a screen grab of your workspace.

    How are you registering this lag? Do you see a door slam and the sound isn't in sync? Are you watching lip sync? Or What?

    I am registering the 'lag' by watching the lip sync...

    As for screen grab, ah, er...like I said it's amateur hour: let me get back to you on that one!

    If it is Lip Sync from the timeline, with Media you have not altered in any way, meaning straight from a camera capture source, yes (?), then look to see if you are getting full frame rate. Have you set up your Project to match your Media: PAL Media and PAL settings. NOT PAL media with NTSC settings. Are you watching in review in Best <>Good<>Preview "quality"?

    Alright, I have been doing my homework, trying my best to get a grip on this.

    As yet, no dice.

    I experimented today with a short clip.

    I set the capture rate at 25fps to match my project specs; the detail box at the end of the capture indicated I got 25fps.

    I placed the clip onto the timeline. The video comes in at 22.13 seconds, but the audio comes in at 23.00 seconds. There is lag.

    Like I said, I am trying to do my homework. I've been hitting Vegas Essentials video tutes on lynda.com, and been digging into the forum archives.

    Any help/comments etc. much appreciated.

    OK let's look at this another way:
    What is your source - I'm guessing a camcorder, right?
    Now, what format does your camcorder record - both the file format (which you may not know) and the media (tape, DVD, hard disk, SD card)?
    What is the make and model of the camcorder (then we might be able to confir/find answer to these questions)
    How EXACTLY are you trying to capture? - Are you connecting via a firewire cable? A USB cable?

    I have a hunch you have are trying to capture via USB - this may well be the cause of your problem, but I'll not get ahead of myself.

    - Just where are you reading these figures off? Where are you getting them from?

    I am unsure about the file format to be honest.

    As for the media, I am using an 8mm Digital 8 videocassette.

    You're right on the mark.

    Tell you the truth, I feel a little stupid for not doing research on the camera side of things: my bad.

    Appreciate the feedback.
