Unfortunately, when the audio varies as you describe manual adjustment is the best way. Someone should ride audio levels during the show. That said, Singular Software has 2 programs that may help: Levelator and PluralEyes. Check them out here.

Did you use a slate at the start of your roll? If not is there a recognizable action you can use to line up shots. Another way is to listen to the audio off two tracks and slip them until they align. Then do the same with one of those tracks and the third. This is what PluralEyes tries to do. If the audio is so low you can't hear it, you'll have to do it with a visual reference.

Thanks Bruce But i tried this Tutorial but its still not working... Finally it shows not Synced... We dont Use either Slate or Time Code. So please help me regarding this... Can you tell me how exactly this Plural Eyes Works.? I have 3 Cameras at 3 position and some times 1 camera will be rolling normally and other camera will cut in the middle and another camera will be still rolling after director says cut. iam doing it manually and its taking lot of time. after this i will be having less time to edit...

If you are having trouble understanding how to use PluralEyes I suggest you go to the support page on the Singular Software site and submit a support request directly there.
