Hi. This is getting frustrating. I am doing a multi-camera edit. It's going well, but I am having some issues. Working with 4 different cameras thus 4 different formats. Two are avi - one HD one SD. One is an .mtc and the last are .mov. These were shot on a canon D60 and look great, but for some readon they drift out of time and I have to do numerous edits pushing the clips ahead to stay in sync. My audio file is my time line. The other files don't do this. So, for instance, I edit a .mov clip into place, say 1.5 minutes long. If I play the beginning of the clip - synced perfectly - check the end of the clip and it is out of sync. I have to go in and cut at least once or twice. What a HUGE waste of time.
Is all the content the exact same frame rate? If they aren't that might have something to do with it.
Frame rates are the same. All done at 29.97 FPS. So I don't think it's that. But it may be the audio capture rate. My project is at 48K, but I think the capture may be at 44.1. Premiere is supposed to deal with this is it not?
Premiere conforms all compressed audio to the same rate of your sequence so that everything matches. However It doesn't conform certain types of uncompressed audio unless they don't match the sequence settings they are in but in these cases it doesn't conform the audio until it comes time to export or create audio preview files.
What codec/format is the audio your using in?
