Mauricio said, "I'm about to edit a low budget short
as a favour and it so happens they had a problem with the rental company
and so couldn't get the gear to jamsync camera and sound,
and no sound was recorded on camera, so I'm left with an old-fashioned
manual sync on my hands; and although you could do this
without laying clips on the timeline, it is easier to check and perfect sync
if you do ( for instance nudging clips by subframe increments and such)
and may come in handy for delivering viewing dailies kemrolls."

Mauricio, there is a simple way to sync your cameras and audio. You have to use markers to do it. It takes a little longer but it works. In FCP X there is a multicamera view which is like a sync map but more powerful. In each of your video and audio clips add a marker where your clap is. Create a new multicam clip according to marker placement. Double clip on your multicam clip and it will open up in the multicam clip viewer. The markers will get you 99 percent there. This is where you can see your wave forms and nudge your clips into sync. This view is your sync map. So yes, FCP X can do that.

I did not think Ronny was condescending at all.
