Audio Track Is Out Of Sync W/video


jineen

Question

I'm REALLY new to the video capturing/burning to DVD world. I captured video (with audio) from a digital video camera. In VideoWave, I inserted some panels with titles before the captured 'presentation'. When I did that, the audio is no longer in sync with the video (the audio is about 4-6 seconds ahead of the video). I tried clicking the audio track and dragging it on the timeline but it didn't work. Can anyone help me?

But now I have another problem...it's a very, very large avi file now and I tried burning it (in Creator Classic?) to an iso file but I keep getting an error message "The target device is incompatible with this recording [0x2000000D]". I'm totally stumped. Anyone have any suggestions?

 

Why are you using Creator Classic? You can burn an avi file to a 4.7 Gb DVD, but you're only going to be able to burn around 20 minutes to a DVD.

 

If you're trying to make a DVD to play on a DVD player, you'll need to use DVD Builder. When you go to burn in that program, there is the option to burn to an 'image file' (.iso) rather than to the DVD Burner.

Did you capture the video through an IEEE 1394 (firewire) cable?

 

If you did, then your audio is 'native' audio ( switch to the Timeline view, click on the icon with the + - sign and make certain the Native Audio is checked.)

 

If you imported through the IEEE 1394 cable as DV AVI, then you've probably got a playback problem on your computer. Although if you have 'onboard sound', that could cause the problem.

 

The only way to determine if the audio is truly out of sync is to burn the production to a DVD.

Did you capture your video to avi or mpeg format? Many posters have less problems with the avi format especially when doing any editing.

I have had occasional audio/video sync problems and usually noticed them when I was previewing in VideoWave. One trick I learned from the discussion groups for EMC 7.5 is to delete the preview audio files in VideoWave by clicking Tools/Options/File Control/Delete Files. I save the production after deleting the audio preview files and then reopen. Now Videowave has to recreate the preview audio files, make some tea and come back when the program is done, this can take a while. The last project I did had alot of added transitions and overlays. I kept deleting the preview audio to keep the preview in sync. Not sure if that was necessary as you only really know as mpalsey said, when you burn a disc, but my project came out fine. Good luck, hope this helps.

 

 

This worked!! Thanks very much!!

What brand of burner do you have? How large is the file? Is your hard drive formatted FAT32 or NTFS?

I did capture through IEEE 1394. Native audio is checked. The audio is in sync with the video if I play just the captured clip before I do any editing, but as soon as I insert color panels with text in front of the clip on the storyboard, that's when things go out of sync. The video is seconds later than the audio.

 

(What is "onboard sound"?)
