I am currently editing a low budget feature shot on RED 24fps in FCP, we are using JPEG compression QTs from the master footage to offline the project. The audio is being recorded at 48khz 24 bit, and the sequence settings have been set up to match.
Due to budegtary reasons there is no assistant editor on the job and so i have been synching the audio to picture myself however today I have discovered an interesting quirk. In order to synch files I have been bringing into the project the JPEG compressed QTs, and all audio files by the day they were shot. to create my editable clips I am creating merged clips by synching them to the clap on the timeline, linking them and dragging them to Scene numbered bins in my browser. however today I have discovered that when I bring my synched clips into the viewer and onto the editing timeline/sequence, some clips are out by a frame. Has anyone else discovered this? This is not due to shoddy synching as I have checked and rechecked and the problem keeps occuring. The initial synch on the timeline when clips are merged slips out.
