We're compiling a blu ray with 6 hours 10 minutes of HDV originated footage.
Output as pro-res, transcoded in Compressor, assembled on Encore, put on a 50 gig dual layer.
Though all the interview clips are discrete, from clips 11 through to 17 the audio slips at an inconstant rate (though it's hard to tell - it might be 2 or 4 frames, or even 6 occasionally). Staring so long at it we might even be talking ourselves into thinking it's slipping between sync and out of sync.
We've thought of a million reasons, read the list, searched google. Is the problem that there's too much data, the pathway we've chosen, the actual form we're using - or is there a fix?
