What is your footage interpretation? What your audio sample rates and timebase? That aside, "circumventing" it by separating audio and video is a valid solution even if it may be inconvenient.
The sampling rate was set to default, 2048. However, when I increased it to maximum, 8192, the video delay became slightly smaller, but it was still there. Is there anyway to get it even higher?
I don't really know much about the timebase. Wish I could tell you more.
There's one thing I see that's certainly wrong: the frame rate. It shouldn't be 23.970, it should be 23.976, and yes, that tiny-little variation makes a difference.
I'd like to know how you're RAM Previewing a clip that's 40 FLIPPIN' MINUTES LONG with just 8 gigs on your machine. People with 64 gigs of memory can't prevew for that length of time, so how are you doing it?
Something just doesn't add up here. You can start by describing in detail how you do your RAM Previews.
Agree with Dave. Ever since fixing a few things in CS4 in terms of framerates and pixel aspect ratios, The Adobe video tools are über-exact and require the proper values. That 6 microseconds sounds like about right making your audio drift noticeably after a while...
Thanks, dave. Correcting it screwed up my frame-frozen layers a bit, and crashed my after effects a couple of times (with an 17:18 error message that reappeared as soon as I removed it) before I got around to convert some of the mp4:s to avi, but in the end it seems to have worked.
" yes, that tiny-little variation makes a difference."
I'm not at all suprised. In fact, I suspected that it was a centimal or so that was the problem.

It's really quite short.(Edit: 00:03:16:??) It's just that I accidentally placed it near the end of a 40-minute work area, and haven't found ot how to move the entire composition. Sorry if I confused you.
