Video And Audio Not In Sync

Question

hi there

 

i have just purchased Easy VHS to DVD for mac (CD and usb capture dongle )

 

does anyone know why my audio and video would be out of sync after i save my recording?

 

im recording from a tape played in an 8mm Camera - the tape / camera are PAL

 

is Easy VHS to DVD for mac set to NTSC? is there a way i can record PAL or does anyone have an idea what the issues would be?

i have tried this on 2 different macs and i get the same problem.

 

there are some blank parts on the tape in between recordings. does this throw the audio out?

 

is there any way of adjusting the preferences?

 

thanks very much

dan

Audio will be out of sync if you use the high-quality setting but not if you use the medium-quality setting. The latter uses h.264 MPEG-4 which is better for most purposes in any case. A free app at macupdate.com called QT Sync may be able to fix the existing recordings.

hey tsantee

 

cheers for the advise - ill have a look at the QT Sync app and see if that fixes it. i tried the medium quality setting but there is frame interlacing and quality is not as good. ideally id like the high quality

 

does anyone know of any other mac application that can be used with the roxio dongle ? or any other way around this issue

it would be great to just hit the record button and the video is recorded without having to double handle the footage

 

cheers

On Roxio's software updates page you can download an earlier version of the capture software that encodes as MPEG 2 instead of the current app's Apple Intermediate Codec or h.264. I think you will like it less. The most professional product similar to the Roxio device is the BlackMagic Design Intensity which requires either a USB 3 or Thunderbolt connection. Previously BlackMagic made a h.264 USB stick they simply called Video Recorder which also is excellent.

I uploaded some home video from a VHS in High quality setting using Roxio VHS to DVD for mac. The audio is out of sync and now I cannot find the original VHS. When I uploaded the other tapes using medium quality the audio was fine. This is the only tape I can no longer find so I need a way to sync the video/audio without recapturing. I have tried QT sync with no luck. I have also tried all the other suggestions on this forum.

 

Here is the capture information:

 

STREAM 0

TYPE: VIDEO

CODEC: APPLE INTERMEDIATE CODEC

LANGUAGE: ENGLISH

RESOLUTION: 640x480

DISPLAY RESOLUTION: 640x480

FRAME RATE: 23.980815

DECODED FORMAT: PLANAR-4:2:0 YUV

 

STREAM 1

TYPE: AUDIO

CODEC: MPEG AAC AUDIO (mp4a)

LANGUAGE: ENGLISH

CHANNELS: STEREO

SAMPLE RATE: 44100Hz

 

 

Any suggestions on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated. We suffered a house fire so the original video was burned. I need to get the audio and video in sync if at all possible.
