    Pre8 and audio sync


      I have Pre7 and does anyone know if the audio and video sync problem some fokes like my self experenced in Pre7 has been addressed? I know a fix was hdvsplit.

          Are your sync problems caused by the CODEC of your video files?

            Thanks for the quick responce. All I know is I use a Cannon hdv 30, captured by firewire to Pre7. The audio is out of sync. To answer your question I don't know.

              Most of those out-of-sync problems were related to the source files, though a few were related to using the wrong project settings.


              What type of camcorder did this video come from and how did you get it into your computer?

                Buying new software when you don't know why something doesn't work is a waste of money

                This is aimed a Premiere Pro, but may help (especially the link to GSPOT!)

                  When one does a Capture via firewire, it is just a copying of the 1's and 0's recorded by the camera. It is exact and unfailing in that.


                  I'd guess that OOS issues are being introduced elsewhere in the workflow. I have not seen people having issue with the Canon HDV30, but may have missed some. If you have some article links, I'd love to look over them to perhaps refresh my memory, which isn't as good as it once was.


                  Not sure why PrE would have issues, that HDVSplit would fix. Now, HDVSplit is the Capture utility, mainly for its power, that PrE and PrPro should have, but do not. The same can be said for SceneAlyzer Live for SD material. Adobe should buy their code and incorporate their capabilities into both of their NLE's.


                  As for any difference in PrE 8, I cannot comment. I know that ATR is doing an extensive investigation of that program, but do not know which cameras he has. If he has, or has access to, a Canon HDV30, maybe he can confirm better performance.


                  Good luck,
