Whereas Premier saves Video and Audio as 2 separate streams.
This should not be the case.
Premiere captures DV material in .avi (pc) or .mov (mac).
As for drifting audio, that should not be the case either.
Have you monitored the tape output outside of Premiere?
Are you certain the audio sync trouble is not recorded on the tape?
I also checked "Scene Detect", and "Abort on Dropped Frames". Could any of these options be causing audio to drift?
These options should have no bearing on the audio sync.
What version of Premiere are you using?
>Premier saves Video and Audio as 2 separate streams
I am Windows so a DV tape camera is captured into AVI, but I agree with Joe... there is something wrong with what you are doing... you should only have one file
Over in the Windows world there are free programs to capture from DV (or HDV) tape... I have no idea what there is for Mac
My understanding has been that .DV codec (iMovie...) has audio interleaved within the video. Where .Mov is a wrapper where audio and video are separate streams.
Yes, the audio is correct within the camera on playback.
I start the new project with Premiere's Preset (DV-NTSC / Standard 48 kHz) and log my clips within Capture.
The preset shows that I'm capturing with Quicktime DV NTSC.
Thanks. I do only have 1 file for each clip. Within my file browser, they appear as 1 file each, with .Mov extension.
The file info for each clips shows:
Codecs: Linear PCM, DV/DVCPRO - NTSC, Timecode
Color profile: SD (6-1-6)
I'm using the Premiere Preset for each new sequence and capture, without changing settings. So, I believe the setup is correct. I've had this problem consistently since Premiere CS4 on Mac.
I'm using Premiere CC. Editing on iMac (2011), with FireWire 800 into a G-Technolgy drive.
If you have had this problem since CS4, I suspect there is
something awry with your hardware setup or your camera.
Your problem is not at all typical.
Could a tape dropout be causing that to happen?
A single (or even multiple) dropouts on tape
should not cause your audio to 'drift' out of sync.
Grasping at straws here, but could this be an audio sampling mismatch? For example, recording audio at 32 kHz and placing it on a 48kHz timeline.
If that's the case, convert the audio to 48kHz in Audition and see if that eliminates the problem.
