I admit, I'm very new at this "shoot video with a still camera" thing, and I have been reading this forum for answers, but I haven't found the answer to this one.
I know that everyone is using a separate recorder to capture quality audio when using this camera. For my purposes of testing... I have been recording straight to the camera via the camera mic and a shot gun. I use a clapboard for reference.
But when I import the footage using MPEG Steamclip.....or just dragging the files to my hard drive......The audio is "way" out of sync with the picture....as much as 1 or two seconds......
Is this normal? Do you have to slide the audio in FCP to match the video on every shot? If this is normal, I guess I haven't been paying attention close enough. If not maybe someone has a couple of suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong.
You don't need to use streamclip. Canon has a Log and Transfer plugin for Final Cut. Now just copy the entire folder onto your hard drive, then set up your Final Cut project and select File, Log and Transfer. then select your folder and you'll see your clips that you can import.
