Audio Out of Synch After Editing in VideoWave


Kerry

Question

I have imported a 30 minute video from VHS to MPEG2 using EMC9. The audio and video are in synch when playing the MPEG and they are also in synch when playing the video in VideoWave. But if I trim portions of the video in VW, the audio and video are out of synch. This happens with other imported videos, as well. I have seen several similar issues posted here, but no resolution. I saw a recommendation for "shorter clips". How short is short enough? Any other suggestions?

Thank you for the suggestion. I don't have an option to import into .avi using EMC9 and my capture card with a VCR. The only choices I have are 3 resolutions of MPEG2 and 1 for MPEG1. (Am I missing an option box some place??) So I outputted the mpeg file to avi in VW, then brought it back in as an avi file to do my editing. That allows me to edit without having the synchronization problem.

I ran into the same problem. My solution was a different editor for doing the trimming, VideoRedo (very fast working with .MPG files), but if it works converting back to .AVI that's a reasonable solution too. What are you using to do your capture? That will give us a clue if there are any other options for capturing. I use an ADS Tech Instant DVD box, which only allows .MPG file capture.

Try re-capturing and working with the video as an AVI file. That's suggested as a solution in just as many cases. (Fewer conversions from mpg2 to avi to mpg2 and back.)

Hi,

I'm using an Adaptec AVC2010 capture card with a VCR as input. I'll look into the VideoRedo. Thanks.

Interesting solution; I would not have thought that that would work. :):huh:
