Hi everyone,
as you probably know, the way most instructors do their lesson is to record the audio and video independantely so that you guys can have a much better sound.
After, the video file and audio file are synched up together in a video editing program.
I do this manually, but was wondering if there was something out there that would synch an audio and video file automatically...

Since the video file has the same sound wave than the audio file, I think it's possible but don't know of any software that does it...
Maybe you guys know?

Not sure David - Afraid I don't do video production at all but according to my wife who has - I think it's a case of syncing to a SMPTE timecode. Have a look at this - particularly towards the bottom.

You need something that will generate the master timeclock - preferably longitudinal (most pro video cameras will do this) and then both your audio and video must be able to generate, use and read the SMPTS timecode - for instance my RMC audio card can interface with EBU and has a BNC connector and can read (and I think generate) SMPTE; CUBASE and NUENDO can use/read SMPTE. I'd imagine that you then need to have/use a very definite audio or video signal as the cue to act as the zero time point marker to sync everything to.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Tony

Thanks Tony..
I'll check it out...
Might just have to do it manually as I've been doing so far.
Thanks !
