So I have a timeline that plays fine in the timeline, but when I export it as a quicktime movie with current settings, the lips are off a tad.

the timeline is 23.987 fps in the project file and the exported QT file

thanks

[joseph wilkins] "when I export it as a quicktime movie with current settings, the lips are off a tad. "

And you're playing that back exactly how???

Quicktime Player does not playback at speed, so it can't be used to judge sync. Exporting does not have any impact on sync, so you'll have to trust it or look at the clip in some other player. I've found that MPEG Streamclip playback is pretty much at speed, so try it. It's a free download all over the Net if you don't already have it.

I've exported it to a low bandwidth MPEG and it still shows in those.

What codec was used in the original clip and the edit sequence?

Do you have any gaps between clips? If so, try inserting slugs between them and try again. I've noticed that FCP can lose sync when gaps aren't filled. I never noticed this before, but it's possible this has just started with v7. There have been a couple of posts about it.

At last! I've been waiting to meet you for a long time.

This is something that I have experienced too when exporting from ProRes 422 running at 23.976. If you make a DVD it will be worse. It's about 3 frames out by the time it gets to DVD, right?

There is no cure. I have traveled far and wide on this one and I guess that we are the few unfortunates who suffer this irritation due to some confluence of the stars, the coriolis effect and chemtrails.

You just have to advance the sound by 3 frames (I think it's that way round - erm, or is it advance the picture?).

Oh, by the way go to your SEQUENCE menu - down to SEQUENCE SETTINGS and make sure that the COMPRESSOR export box thingy is set to ProRes 422.

Ha! Another victim.

Hugs,

Harry.
