Video And Audio Out Of Sync


lisamcanish

Question

Apologies first of all if this has been covered recently, I couldn't find anything.

When perviewing and burning DVDs the audio and video slip out of sync. I have been through all the suggestions on the website for correcting this issue under version 7.5. I have also logged a fault but the answer back with system amendments has not helped. I am using the software on a brand new media PC so really don't beleive there can be capacity issues. Can anybody please help? This is driving me insane!! Thanks Lisa

Dear Walt,

 

Thanks for replying.

 

I am saving in Mpeg, but my PC is automatically doing this when copying videos from my Camcorder. I'm going to look like a real novice now, but how do you change the files to avi?

 

Regards

EMC 7.5 requires a Firewire connection to capture from a digital camcorder. How have you connected your camcorder to the PC?

With the Capture Window open: There are two options:

 

1-DV video: Captures full-size DV video with optimal quality

(AVI file format). This file format creates large video files.

2-MPEG-2: Captures full-size video using MPEG-2 compression. The MPEG-2 compression format maintains a high video/audio quality while allowing smaller file sizes.

 

Also search the Help system for "Capturing video from a DV camera " for a full description on how to capture from a digital camcorder

Hello Lisa and Walt,

 

Thanks Lisa to bring me to your Topic and evitate that I start a new one with the same issue.

 

My wife and me started the project of transferring our VHS and Super-8 tapes to DVD. I installed an ATI TV card and EMC for capturing the video and creating the DVD file that will be burnt.

 

In principle, I have the same problem as Lisa; after capturing a video in mpeg format from an analog camera, we create a project with photos and video and burn the result to DVD (-R). Recently, in a particular case, we noticed a progressive desynchronisation of the sound and video on the resulting DVD. The sound get progressively ahead of the video and the progression can be as bad as 1,5 second. Having no solution, we figured it was an isolated case (learn that from our politicians!). Bad to worst, a recent DVD showed the same behavior.

 

In a state of panic, since our project has been going on for 2 years and we have about 25 DVD done, DVD that have been rapidly check but not really screen play for problem identificaiton, we looked at random samples of the recents one and the delay barely noticeable.

 

Therefore, we have only to flagrant cases and we would like to find out what is the problem to prevent further DVD with the same issue.

 

Thanks for your help and I hope, I am not messing the Topic.

What kind of videos are your burning? Is it in mpeg or avi format? A bit more information on what exactly you are doing would be helpful.

There have been many posts on the audio/video sync problem and some posters have been able to resolve their problem by using avi instead of mpeg
