Can anyone share their strategy for syncing footage? I'm using CS5 to edit native files. I'm wondering what the best approach is. Should I choose my takes first, then sync up the external audio to just those clips? The thing is that when you are cutting back and forth how will you keep the clip together if you are inter-cutting say an interview? I was thinking maybe sync on a separate sequence, then nest the synced sequence to keep the clip together without having to re-sync every new clip you drop in. Any thoughts?
Okay, I'll answer my own question. It turns out to not be such a big deal. I'm just dropping in the external audio close to matching the line of dialog and then using single frame nudge forwards or backwards until it sounds perfectly in sync. I'm not even bothering with the slate clap board clicks as you can't get them to line up perfectly anyhow when you've expanded the timeline completely out. But the nudge works beautifully.
