None of the numbered issues above are causing a sync issue with our editing. The Roxio editing suite will not accept any HD video recorded on a Nikon or Canon DSLR unless we convert it, adding a frustrating layer of time and effort to our daily editing work. There are quite a number of videographers using DSLR cameras now, so to say a Nikon D3200, for example, is 'masquerading as a camcorder' is an excuse for the Roxio program simply being inferior to any number of other editing platforms that are more expensive, the same cost, and less expensive that have absolutely no issues synching Nikon video/audio in the editing timeline. I'm assuming Roxio is not going to fix the issue from the tone of your reponse, is that correct?
A darn shame, because the rest of the functionality is intuitive, effective, and produces an excellent end product. I remain hopeful an update will come along that will fix this issue.
