Thanks Bouke.

As far as I know there's no timestamp associated with the Zoom H4n-generated files - and they're WAV files.

Understood about a more pro style method to generate TC for audio - problem is, production scale is such, that we're relying on less than experienced operators (ie myself) with limited knowledge/funds for kind of gear you're suggesting. That's why I'm hoping to make this DIY Zoom/Plural Eyes workflow work - it's something we can pull off given our means.

And if we were to get some kind of audio TOD TC generated, don't quite know how I'd jam that to the HDSLRs (esp 5D) - there's limited to none inputs on these cameras (basically a stereo mini in.) Cameras have internal clocks, but sync.ing that would be a necessarily imprecise eyeballing. Also, the TOD TC that does get associated with the video files (AVCHD H264s) is only generated/visible after doing an FCP log and transfer ingest using Canon EOS movie plug-in - and I don't know if FCP is generating that TC itself, or actually referencing back to record cameras original clock.

Nick.
