59.94fps mov clips not syncing to audio 48Khz. Bizzare drift.
on Jun 17, 2012 at 10:56:38 am

I have a huge live music project of 59.94 clips with audio from a Zoom H4N processed at 48khz 16bit

Needess to say, nothing will Sync right. I'm always getting about a second drift after 10 min..

This has never happened to me as I always shoot in PAL 25fps 1080p.

What can I do to fix this sync issue?

I'm thinking I should process all the clips to 1080 25fps??

There is the problem.
I guess that you'r default Sequence Setting is PAL.
FC has a bug and when you import audio files, FC treat those files as they would have the time-base of your default Sequence.
Having your default sequence PAL, when you bring the audio files to an NTSC sequence, the audio gets out of sync.
Your workaround is not difficult:
- Delete the audio files from FC (Browser, sequences).
- Set any default sequence with a 59,94 fps.
- Reimport the audio.
that should work.
If you want to learn more about the bug and how to fix it in other situations, read this:
