syncing 3 tracks of audio with clapper board.

Hello,

I'm currently working as an assistant editor at a short film. We have been using three microphones.
The timecode dosen't work so I sync by clapperboard. When I try to Merge Clips at in points the tracks are 1-3 frames off sync cause of the clapper sounding at different times in the microphones..

What to do?

Any tips?

Thank You
Viking

Select one audio clip, hold the option key, & move audio track one frame at a time with the left and right arrows. I always pick a part of the audio with a clipped sound to check if they are synced.

If the audio tracks cannot sync because of the different microphone placements, you can do a sub-frame audio edit. zoom into timeline so you can see the whole frame. click on the track so it is in the viewer. Shift-click on the viewer playhead and you can drag the track. Release the mouse and shift key.

This is from tutorial by Shane Ross, off of this thread:

sorry, forgot to say click I (In) when you release the mouse and this will move the frame.
