    Audio loses sync with video on HD footage (CS5.5). 'MPEG decode error'

    Shaun Phillips Level 1

      HI All,


           I'm trying to cut this vox pops video together but the audio seems to lose sync. i noticed that there was a red circle in the bottom right of the screen with a cross in the centre. After clicking on it, i was greeted with this message...

      I have a fairly powerfull machine so I'm unsure as to what the problem is. Any suggestions as it's making this task virtually impossible!!!

      Please, any help appreciated!!!

          Had this occasionally myself.


          For me it was drop-out on the tape (at the very start of some sections luckily), even though CS5.5 did not register any drops when capturing.


          If you're not using tape then you've got a card error. Checkout the video at or about Frame 32106. Check out the source material. Although Windows 7 Media Player is likely to show no errors and with your audio in sync - very mis-leading - a false positive.


          Fix for me was to simply re-sync audio/video manually but upstream of the error. If not, you will likely find you will also get export errors when trying to export via AME.
