    Audio not synched with my video, new memory 24 gigs

    timthompsonguitar Level 1

      Hi:

       

      CS5 Premier Pro

       

      I just installed 24 gigs of memory in my i7 920 computer with 5 hard drives. Now my audio is lightly ahead of my video. What am I doing wrong?

       

      Virtual disk settings?

      Scratch disk settings?

       

      Video card is: Gforce 9800 GT

       

       

       

      Thanks

          HI,

           

          Are you running the latest update of 5.02, if so try and create a new project and import the files into the new project nad see if that helps.

            You've probably, accidentally moved the audio from the video on the timeline, re align. We have been using a new NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800 and it happened with a jazz music clip .I just thought it was my sloppy editing in Premiere Pro. I just moved the audio on the timeline from the end on the clip to line up, and it was perfect. i do not think it is the video card or computer, just tired unprofessional editing technique. We have 12 Gb Ram , not that i am sure ? On a i7 Professional Workstation Quad Core ?

             

            Let me know if you find other wise ?

              Actually, that was fhe first thing I thought of. It was on a clip that I hadn't edited. I checked to see if I had unlinked it but I hadn't. Also, I noticed it after I installed the new memory today. I've gone through so many debugging things I can't remember exactly where I'm at. My system is getting better with each addition, but it's been expensive. I think the video card might not be stout enough for what I'm doing. There maybe something else but I hesitate to delve full on into this project before I solve all these problems. Thanks for you help!

               

              Wow, I just had to edit my post because I left out the "i" in doing and it did this to the word "****"

                If you're using AIFF audio and haven't applied the 5.02 update, your audio will be out of sync. The 5.02 update will fix it, but I'd suggest manually applying it- the auto update sent my app back to trial status (which seems to have happened for a few people).

                 

                Cheers,

                  Thanks but the audio I'm using at present is what the camera recorded. I'm still mainly dealing with video issues. I recorded separate audio which I'll import later but for now, I thought it was strange that my audio and video were out of sync.

                   

                  I just picked up a GTX-470. I'm downloading the latest driver to see how that does.

                   

                  Multi-Camera mode so far sucks. Now I'm got a fire breathing dragon for hardware and it still doesn't work that good.

                    I'm wondering if I should update my bios. To date, I've done the following:

                     

                    Upgraded  from 6 gigs of ram to 24 gigs of DDR3 1600

                    Added three hard drives with two of them on Raid 0. Total is 5 hard drives

                    Just picked up a PNY GTX-470 display adaptor

                    Upgraded to CS5

                     

                    This thing should be halling ***! But Multi-Camera mode is still very sluggish.

                     

                    Video files are MXF files. I import them as P2 files. Theat's how they show up in the media browser.

                      After you've installed the Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.2) update, delete the media cache files for the assets that are having synchronization problems (or clear your whole media cache if you just want to be sure). This will cause Premiere Pro to re-index and re-conform media. There was a bug in Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.0 and 5.0.1) regarding how some files were indexed, which caused some audio to be out of synch. That, along with the AIFF bug fixed in this update, makes this update crucial if you're having audio synch issues.

                        I just updated to 5.0.2 and I am having the issues described by others. I have cleared the media cache and re-exported the media and still have an audio synch issue. Do you happen to have any other suggestions?

                          Is it synced up in Premier?

                           

                          I had this problem with a project I was experimenting with. I kept using the same project file making many changes etc.. The thing that solved my problem was starting over with a fresh project, re-importing everything etc. The problem went away.

                           

                          Also, are you using the audio recorded with the camera? If not, then I assume you are using audio recorded on something else and you are impoorting it. That's what I do. I have a recording studio so I want good audio. So...the audio that is recorded on most cameras is 48k. If you record audio on something else at 44.1K, you could have problems. I have had problems with that.

                           

                          I'm shooting in the dark becuase I don't know your situation. Sorry if you've heard or tried all this. Hope it at least gives you some ideas.
