Full Version: Recording Video And Audio At The Same Time

Hi guys! I've been using Sonar, but it's seems too boring to synchronize the audio with the video. The question is: is there any software which can record the video and the audio at once? My webcam software supports this function but it can't record the backing track. So I'm looking for some DAW with video recording function. I count on your help. smile.gif

How about a video editing software that can record audio and video? Like Vegas? smile.gif

Is there a function to play the backing track during recording? I just can't find it.

I'd be interested to know that as well.

I use reaper to record audio and logitech webcam for video. But I don't find a way to do it all at the same time with the backing.

Nope You cannot do that.. smile.gif The only way to get rid of sync issue is to record with your speakers. I recorded one today and it gave one hell of a time trying to sync.. god knows why the video or the audio went like 0.1% faster.. while it synced perfectly at the beginning but lagged like 0.4 secs at the end. sad.gif

I tried using soundflower on mac sometime back which was supposed to record both computer sound and external input but I haven't yet figured it out.

Oh I dont know about that, sorry.. I usually record from two different sources (webcam software or photo camera, and DAW), and then sync them in Vegas or Movie Maker smile.gif

Sounds to me like a mismatch between sample rates. Possibly your audio is 44.1k but the video is at 48k.

you need somekind of sync noise at the beginning of the recording which also clearly appears on the video. That's why they use those on professional film industry. When they go: ACTION!

You can do that with your hands even, just make sure audio from the camera, audio in the DAW AND video pick the same "event" such as clapping your hands. It's got to be very clear. It will make syncing a lot easier later.

I personally don't do it because in Adobe you can see the audio waveform of both the audio from the DAW and audio from the camera, so you just put one below the other and it's going to be in sync, just zoom a lot.

You are actually looking for video editing software that will have this feature (to choose different capture source for audio and video). Though depends a lot on the sound card you have. You'll have to be able to make a mix between the backing and the guitar and capture that channel. I'm not sure though I think Vegas and Windows Movie Maker can use different audio capture sources.

It would be cool to find a video camera that has a line level audio input. Then, you could just take the signal from the mixer directly into the camera. Mix the backing track and the audio from your live take and send it to the camera. It would save a step for sure. I looked around for such a camera before I settled for a basic web-cam and couldn't find anything.

I would recommend that you sync your files. It will prove better. There isn't any product that does both things well. Audio is for DAW, and video is for video editing apps. Just use audio and visual signals at the beginning of the video, and you will have no problems syncing. Or you can use waveforms.

I'm not sure what video editing software you use, but Vegas is very good, and you will have no problem syncing with it.

Yes this is definitely the easiest option though its not that versatile. Usually more expensive cams have this option of mic/line input. Though I recommend it as such cam will be much more useful in different situation then the one without it (for interviews and stuff like that).

Hi guys.... reading the postings here I am also facing same chalenges... By the way, there a Sony cam XR160 with those line inputs required. Take a look on it. It costs about 550 US dollars.

Take care all !!! Keep rocking !!!

It's better to sync the files in the end, provides more control smile.gif
