Sound And Video Not Together


JDW

Question

HI,, maybe You have an idea that can help me,.. We recently put in this system with a wall mounted camera going into a computor and the Church PA system. I record Church Services on a system which picks up the sound by way of the PA system.. Looks good going in but coming out on DVD the picture and the sound are not together.. Its not good.. The sound is ahead of the picture. I have no idea what is going on with this thing.. Any one got idea of anything I could do to get this thing in Sink?? Oh, I don't know all this tech. stuff , so if you reply, its got to be simple .I am just a point and shoot person. This system cost enought to be a point and shoot.. I hope it works better than this or we may be shooting with my old 1994 VHS camera again which has a better picture and the sound is auto..

You have not given any information on how you are bringing the video into your PC, what program in EMC 10 you are using, etc. So it is hard to make any suggestions at all

Well, I am not sure of the names of the parts, I just push the buttons.. I did note one difference , when capturing a vedio it has a choice of dv, hqdv an some others . The Hqdv seems to make the sound and picture in sink better. This may be the problem.. I thought this was a recording speed. The system defaults to dv and I forget to change before doing the recording. At one time I think it was 6 or more 1 hr services on the PC so I deleted all except one and that may have helped. Hey, maybe an operator error.. Me... or I could just ask the preacher to start over again sence I press the wrong button .. O Well,, any ideas? thanks...

Step back, take a big breath and start again.

 

The device is directly connected to a computer correct? Does it record to the hard drive or to a DVD? Are you working with the computer that is doing the recording?

 

Frankly, I don't doubt that there is a sync issue. There has to be some software that would match up key frames between the visual and the audio devices - remember light is faster than sound. Is there an adjustment to match that up? Perhaps you should ask for help from the supplier.

 

Now if you have the video/audio on the computer in some form, which Roxio program are you using to edit the file?

 

Any maintenance on the computer such as making sure that there is plenty of free space and that the hard drive is defragmented will help.

 

Now, if you are using EMC (Video Wave) to do the editing, you can extract the audio from the video using Media Manager. You save the audio as a wav file. Add the video file to Video Wave and mute the native track. Add the wav file you generated on another audio track. It can then be moved slightly forward or back to get it to match up.
