Audio Doen't Match Video


sakalik

Question

Hi,

I'm hoping some one can help me.

I just tried editing my home video. I captured it - previewed it - dragged it to the production area to edit, but when I hit play I was the right video but the audio was pulling from an old video. I played the video in the preview window and the audio was OK but the second I dragged it to the production area the audio doesn't match my video. I tried it with all the new files and they all have the same issue.

Does anyone have an idea why?

 

Thank you for your help.

This happens on occasion to some, altho I've never experienced it myself.

 

Basically, when you add a video file to the production, it creates 'temporary work files', called proxy files, that it uses to simulate what the editing will end up as. These don't get cleared out very often until they end up taking up a lot of space. So, what happens sometimes is you add a video file to a new production, and it's using an audio file that's still sitting in the temp area instead of the one that goes with the video file.

 

Ok, enough background, now how to fix it. In Videowave, go to Tools -> Options, and select the File Control tab. There you should see a section that shows where it stores the Audio Preview or Proxy files, and has a button to delete or clear them. Just use the button, and new ones should be created and you should get the right audio now. It's not a bad idea to clear these out every so often. Saves on disc space and prevents these kind of errors.

What do you know, it worked. Thank you.

Now I wish I hadn't deleted the old files in frustration.

 

Thanks again.
