    Sound In Video Recording Does Not Sync With Lips On Video

    The specs that appear when I clicked the edit button still report 44.1 kHz when I move the project to Toast using the HD option and the Toast Media Browser. This seems to be true regardless of how I export it. I have wasted at least 15 DVDs and still can't find the solution.

    Sound In Video Recording Does Not Sync With Lips On Video

    I am using Toast 11.1 (1072). Let me try your suggestion and if necessary, I will start over and watch it more carefully. When I moved the iMovie video to Toast to make a regular DVD, I didn't have a problem with the sync at all. It worked fine. The problem then becomes that the quality of the image is not as good as it is when I create the HD DVD. Thanks for your feedback. I will let you know what I find.

    I forgot to mention that when exporting this project, iMovie11 shows the rate as 48.000 kHz. Keep in mind I have never encountered this problem before. The only thing I am doing differently is using the plugin I mentioned above and attempting to create a high definition video, the third option, rather than choosing the first option, create a DVD, which is what I have always done in the past.

    The output summary on Toast 11 Titanium for this project reads: My movie High Defition DVD-Video Video: MPEG-4 AVC, 8.0 MBPS (16.0 Mbps max) Audio: Dolby DIgital 192 kbps To get more detail info. I selected edit: Video H:264, 1920x1080, 29.97 fps Audio: MPEG-4 audio, stereo, 44100 Hz The video was shot at 30 fps. Thanks, Michael

    Just to add one note: I recreated the project in iMovie 11, then exported it as a HD movie. It played correct in every respect. It is only when I burn it to a DVD that this syncing problem occurs. If all else fails I can always go back to burning it the way I did before I purchased the plugin mentioned above.
  6. I am still a novice with video and am having a new problem I have never encountered. I recently downloaded the Toast 11 HD and Blu-ray plugin so that I could use regular DVDs to record HD video. After i burned the DVD and played it back, I noticed the sound was not synced with the movements of the individual's mouth. I did not record the sound and video seperately. I used an omni directional lavalier microphone that I hooked directly to my camera. On the recording, the sound is excellent as is the picture, just not synced. I can't find anything online about correct audio settings for this kind of situation so I would appreciate any help anyone might be able to offer. Regards, Michael
  7. Thank you very much for this information. I have been out of town so I have not had a chance to try this but I will this weekend. I love the fact that there are people like you willing to help the helpless!
  8. For purposes of learning how to do this better, let me say that I am starting with an HD video in iMovie, although not always. The problem is not the camera. It will shoot HD, no problem. The videos vary in length but one hour is average. I would like to create an HD disc, which my existing burner will not do. I usually have either file extension m4v. or mov when I export the video. For example I looked at the size of a one hour medium size video a few nights ago and it was 890 MB. When I dragged and dropped it into the burner, it increases to +4GB. The program asks if I want to compress it, and if I do the aspect ratio makes everything look weird. If I don't, I end up with a huge file that doesn't look that great. Plus sometimes it gets stuck and I usually end up burning it directly to my disk utility and then to the DVD. I don't know if any of this makes sense because I am a still photographer and all this other stuff is very new to me. Thank you for your help.
  9. I have been using another DVD burner to make video DVDs. I am not happy with how the end product looks and I don't like the massive difference in the size of the DVD exported vs. the DVD when it is burned. I am looking at Toast as a possible alternative. I would like to hear someone familar with how Toast deals with the compression issue for any and all file extensions typically used with imovie.
  10. Has anyone noticed how much the compression rate goes up when rendering imovie after exporting from either mpeg4 or mov?
