audio synch

Question

I am a long term Roxio user and currently use MyDVD 9.0 Premier to transfer files from VHS tapes and then burning the trimmed files that I save as MPEG-2 best for DVD profile. I am having random problems with Audio synch. I capture the VHS using a Hauppauge capture card with latest updates and the capture setting is DVD_HQ. I can also set for DVD- SP, which is the recording speed that I record the VHS tapes that I am transferring. To summarize

 

Capture using DVD-HQ and then editing the file and saving as MPEG-2 best Quality for DVD,

 

Do you have any suggestions for me about settings, etc? Sometimes Audio is perfect and other times, a slight out of synch lag.

 

Other than that, all is excellent.

 

Thanks you

A popular suggestion that seems to work for most is to capture in smaller files instead of 1 large file. Also, keep the hard drive defragged as that will make a difference in many things video.

Thank you for your fast response. I tried a smaller file mand generally get the same random result. Do you see any issue re the format that I capture in? I have a lot of HDD room (>200GB Free) and more than adequate Video RAM. Sometimes a 2 hour video works fine and a 1 hour doesn't, that's why I referred to the problem as Random. I will continue to try different things including smaller files. I didn't know if this might have an accerstion or some related issue.

I prefer avi but your Hauppauge won't do avi but I see no problem with how you're capturing as you say it does work a good deal of the time. Not sure what your computer is like so it might be helpful to post the system info here as well.

BTW, the files I am working with are 2.7GB. I can trim them and then save them for transfer. To you think that saving them as image files might eliminate some of the issues?

This is a known issue.

This procedure works but IMHO it seems to be too much work and takes too long.

 

I am still on my trial with a program called "VideoReDO". I do my editing in EMC and then I take the MPG that I create and let VRD sync it back up. Works very well.

 

Some may argue that this is a "DISS" to Roxio. Not really. I have just added VRD to my arsenal of video tools.

I'm a huge VideRedo fan as well. VW works fast with avi files but since my pvr500 captures only in mpeg, VW is very slow and I don't have the patience for it.

They do come up with updates pretty regularly. Another popular program is TMPGenc Mpeg Editor which works the same way. I look at this as a compliment to Roxio, not a competitor since it only does 1 thing. VideoReDo is also great with tivo files!
