imported PAL video : goes out of sync
on Jan 12, 2008 at 8:08:45 pm

Hi,

I imported a video file (an AVI I converted to a WMV in PAL). Plays normally and in sync when watched through Media Player.

I have this gig where I need to record a commentary track for an European DVD and thought the best way to do it was in Audition (1.5) while the video plays in the multitrack.

But when I import it into Audition, and choose any random spot to view, it plays in sync for a few seconds then the video gets off... My conclusion is that, although both files (video and audio) are the same length, somehow Audition understands the video (or transcodes it?) in NTSC in the monitor...

I checked all features, preferences and options and there's no way it seems to make Audition understand that the session is a PAL one. I've tried the option of putting the timecode in PAL, but it doesn't make the program understand that the video is...

Wanted to work with 2.0, but the prog is not even able to import the WMV and crashes...

Any idea why this is happening?

Or is there a better method to record a comm track?

Many thanks,

Pat

Actually just looking further into it and realized that the video is actually playing MUCH MUCH faster! It gets schizo on it, bursting faster in moments... The movie has been playing for 10 minutes now and the image is like 5-6 minutes later.

And if I remember well it also did that in the past with NTSC projects...

We're in England so work exclusively in PAL when it comes to
dubbing audio to video in Audition, and have had loads of fun
with it. Even on modestly spec'd workstations, Audition seems
to handle DVAVI as well as any other format, so firstly, there
may not be need to convert to WMV before importing. You
can also tell Audition to playback 'low quality' video
although I've never noticed much of a difference in 'qualities'.

We only use Audition 1.5 as Adobe/Apple have seemingly made a
mess of every newer version. But even on maxed out machines,
Audition will start grumbling and slipping in sync after a few
heavy hours of DSP and dubbing - which makes it the perfect
time for reboot and cup of tea, IMHO. :)

Hi,

Well my thing got out of sync like 15 seconds into it, wherever I started the playback... Rebooting wouldn't help.

Fortunately enough, the director saw in the end, that it was not needed for him to hear the audio simultaneously.

Thanks nonetheless!

Pat
