Synchronising 2 Videos


drumlin

Question

Hello all

I am interested in any tips on what others do when attempting to sync 2 or more videos. Basically we are pretty new to this; we use 2 cameras to record an event. Using Roxio 11 VideoWave I decide which of the 2 Camera files will me the main file (master) and then the other will be added as an overlay (whereby I slice it up and usually do basic fade in's and out's etc.). However especially with music video I find it very time consuming to initially line up the 2 files on the Roxio Timeline before I get to work. Is there a feature/add on I have not found in Roxio that could help sync the 2 files via analysing their audio patterns. If not it would be on my wish list. I did see some software available on www.singularsoftware.com but am holding out for some feedback or tips first.

Many Thanks Drumlin

Use "snap to objects" to do the alignment. The icon is below the preview window in Video Wave. Turn it on and move the overlay until you see a red verticle line. When you do, it is aligned - or supposed to be.! :)

 

You will not find it in the help menus. It is heritage and only us old guys remember it. I just tried it in Creator 2011 and it works.

I'm not sure it works for video but did you find the "snap to grid" in Video Wave. It is below the preview window.

Hi sknis

Having a look for that now, there is a snap to object button and a Edit Volumne Envelope for audio objects. Never really new what they did, but will read up on the now to see if they would help.

Thanks for the advise will post back.

I see, just tried that snap to objects as you explained sknis, that will prove useful alright, no sure if it will help in syncing but will keep looking at it. See what you mean about the not finding it in any help menus. My help manual was google, and it just brought me right back to here.

Edit volume envelope just give you the sound wave display and allows you to do some fading with the audio.

 

If you can find "snap to objects" in the help files, you are a better searcher than I am.
