Hi there,

I'm about to edit my first music video and I wondering if anyone could give me any tips on syncing? I have roughly 6 hours of footage, and its a really fast edit so I need to organize my work flow and not be bogged down with out of sync footage.

Any help?

Get PLURALEYES. It will sync for you. Everything.

Oh great, thanks!

If the studio I'm working in doesnt have Plural Eyes, what would be your next suggestion?

That they get it.

Otherwise...multiclip everything. And I hope they slated. If not...that'll be a pain in the ass.

Before I went with Plural Eyes I used to look at the waveform in the audio track, and if I was lucky, I'd be able to place markers at common points, lets say where the vocals began, then line them up that way, either with multiclip or manually.

How do I make a multiclip if every scene and take has a different timecode, and no audio is bring recorded on set?

That is why you SLATE shots. A common marker that is visual and well as audible. You mark an IN point where the slate closes. Did they not do that?

Basically what you do is find a common sync point and then mark IN points, and group via the IN point.
