Adding a .wav audio file to a 2 camera Multi-clip
on Aug 10, 2011 at 12:56:13 am

Hi everyone,

Many of my current projects now are shot with a 5D, with audio captured separately. In my 2-camera interviews, ideally I would simply add the good audio as a third clip, from which I would choose the audio.

However, when I multiclip sync using In Points on all three sources, the .wav audio is not in sync.

Am I missing something here? This seems so basic.

Thanks,
Julie

Did you transcode the h.264 files to ProRes? Did you record the camera's audio too?

Yes, all footage is converted to ProRes, and yes, there is in-camera audio.

The external audio can be easily sync'd using the in-camera audio in a FCP timeline, but with a 2-camera interview, I'd like to work with a multiclip, not a sequence.

Make sense?

Might be the wav file... Try transcoding it to an AIFF at 48 kHz, and try using that file in the multi clip. Alternatively, try just adding the audio to the sequence replacing the multi clip's audio..i.e., don't make it actually part of the multi clip, just add it to the sequence which contains the multi clip.
