I have a pretty newbie question and am able to do what I need to, but I don't think I'm doing it in the easiest or fastest way.
I'm putting together a video of interviews and each interview was recorded to an external microphone. I want to match up the interviews with the external audio before editing into the final cuts so that I can sync it better from the beginning. Right now, I'm putting each interview video in its own sequence and matching the audio there, then editing it to another master sequence.
Is there a better way to match up external audio then easily edit it using the source monitor. I haven't had much luck finding a good tutorial for something like this so if you have a link I'd greatly appreciate it.
Using 5.0 or below, what you're doing is the only real way it can be done.
Using 5.5, there is a new Merge Clips feature that will make it easier. The Help file should have the info you need.
Here is a good video from Jason Levine from Short and Suite for CS5.5
Good info even if your on CS5.0 too.
