    DV Audio drifts after capture - What's the Solution?

    dougyyz

      Greetings,

      Pardon me if this is covered territory, but other posts don't seem to address this scenario directly.

       

      I continue to have audio sync problems when capturing DV footage.  I'm using the same camera for capture that was used in the field (Panasonic AG-DVC60).  When clips are captured, audio is already out of sync, before placing them on the timeline.

       

      I've checked my settings before capture:

      Selected DV Capture

      Selected Panasonic as the camera type

      Using the same scratch disc (external media) as the project (not HD drive on my iMac).

       

      What's odd is that the 1st DV tape I captured handled audio perfectly.  I logged 1 clip, then captured it, audio is fine.

       

      On the 2nd DV tape, I logged several clips, then batch captured.  I also checked "Scene Detect", and "Abort on Dropped Frames".  Could any of these options be causing audio to drift?

       

      In the past, I've used iMovie as a work-around, since it stores video in DV codec (video and audio combined in 1 stream).  Whereas Premier saves Video and Audio as 2 separate streams.

       

      Have any of you found the solution?  Thanks in advance.

       

      Blessings.
