Not that I'm aware of.
I have an Audio recording studio and do video editing at the same time, i don't see a reason to do that, why you wanna do that ! just carious !!
It might be possible if you stripe audio and play it back on the soundtrack but like the man says what for? That need is a thing of the past. Do you simply want to write music cues to picture or make your edits to the soundtrack. Either way its far easier to work in one piece of software. I do actually link up several computers with MTC for very complex audio mixes but I run the video content in the audio software. Unlike Premier Digital Performer for instance can display full HD in real time without a stutter as well as sending MTC to two other machines..
Thanks for the replies. The reason we need this is so we can record multiple takes of video and audio and not have to line up hundreds of video files afterward. I am kind of shocked that this is not discussed more and clearly not used more often. I guess the way everyone does it is to record all the audio first then lip sync everything in video and line it up later but we want to record real takes of video along with the performance as it happens.
There has to be some way we can just record video and audio into their respective programs and sync them from the beginning without having to rely on just recording audio and then stitching in where all the many video files will go and manually lining them all up as best we can. It would save many hours and would otherwise be exacting rather than tedious and a big messy clean-up.
Timecode, SMPTE, MTC, VST-plugin, 3rd-party application, anything?

There is. Use a camera. Work with them "in their respective programs" afterwards.
Or perhaps OnLocation will suite your needs, again working with them "in their respective programs" afterwards.
The correct of even that is to connect your Condensor Mic to a mixer, make it sound the way like it (I normally record flat) and from output of your mixer you can go XLR to Mic IN...
you should get a perfect audio on your tape ...the rest is easy i am sure you know !!
Jim where is the answer for my question ??????
its NOT about youtube..lol
my question was about final output of CS3, read your PM or my Posts, please
you have over 10,000 post ...i am sure you are loaded with info!
Thanks, therayman, unfortunately though we need to use Windows XP but that shows some promise. We are open to any software options that could do this.
Jim, thanks for the OnLocation suggestion but not exactly what we are going for.
We are going to record multiple shots of video and audio for music videos as they are being produced, so it will not really be a post-production deal and the tracks will add up very quickly. Syncing everything after the fact, instead of real time as it could and should be, is a huge strain.
Pluraleyes seems to be our best bet so far but is still a back step from real time.
We are open to any suggestions of an audio software (VST and VSTi) and video software (HD) combo that can work precisely together.
It sounds to me like the recording isn't the big deal. It's in the 'editing' you're trying to 'sync' both programs. I just have never heard of such a thing, with any software or on any platform.
Why will Premiere's own audio capabilities not sufice?
We need the strengths of an audio mastering suite. If we can sync automatically while recording then we don't have to manually sync in editing at all.
You'd think with all this timecode that it would be doable. We need a competent audio and video program together or they at least need to be able to work with each other, like good people do. I cannot believe people put up with this barricade in producing.
Well, if it's only the recording sync you need, that seems like it should be possible. You'd probably have to record using two separate computers, each running one program. So long as the audio has the same timecode as the video, you may be able to sync them up in Premiere with a single click. I know Premiere can do this for two video files which have identical timecode. Perhaps it can do as much for a video and audio file.
Assuming Premiere can do so, the issue then becomes how to get both video and audio to have the same timecode. You'd need some sort of timecode generator, and a camera as well as digital audio device that could accept such generated timecode. My knowledge on that front is very lacking, but such equipment must exist.
Failing that path, there is the option of simply recording to camera, and using Nuendo to import the resultant A/V file to work on the audio portion. If Nuendo won't open an A/V file, if it can only work with straight audio files, you might look into Adobe Audition, which has the advantage of integrating with Premiere Pro. You can right click on a file in the Premiere sequence, and open the audio in Audition for work. Any changes made in Audition automatically show up in Premiere.
Thanks for the help, Jim.
I think I'm on the right track now.
I checked out Sony Vegas Pro demo and have sync'd it to Nuendo through timecode with MIDI Yoke (virtual loop back midi drivers) and I can control either way now, through Nuendo as Master or Sony Vegas Pro as master and the other as slave.
My question now would be, when I set to capture video through firewire in realtime on Sony Vegas Pro, does it capture along with the timecode down in the timeline and keep everything sync'd?
You should probably ask that question over in the Sony forums. We're set up here to help with Adobe products.
