    Audio sync and merging files for documentary

    VarnoDolk

      Hello,

       

      I am in the early stages of editing a documentary.

      I have a lot of video footage shot on 5D MKIII. B-roll and interviews.

      Approximately 11 days of shooting arranged into folders corresponding to a specific date.

       

      Example:

       

      EHF_101112_DK/

      EHF_101112_DK_001.MOV

      EHF_101112_DK_002.MOV

      EHF_101112_DK_003.MOV

      EHF_101112_DK_004.MOV

      Etc.

       

      I also have a lot of audio recorded externally, also arranged into folders corresponding to a certain date.

       

      Example:

       

      101112/

      001T01_1.WAV

      001T01_2.WAV

      001T01_3.WAV

      001T01_4.WAV

      001T02_1.WAV

      001T02_2.WAV

      001T02_3.WAV

      001T02_4.WAV

      Etc.

       

      I am on Windows 8 Pro using Premiere Pro CS6.

       

      I need to have all of the footage synced up to the externally recorded audio and neatly sorted into specific folders, so I can quickly find and edit what needs to be done, without having to worry about sync once I'm done editing.

       

      What is the typical workflow?

       

      Please help!

       

      Best regards,

      Daniel
