XL-1 frame rate

ALOHA Chris,

I'm from Hawaii, but have spent time in Austin, YeeeeeeeeeHa. I have been all through watchdog and here is the problem. I have converted from win 2000 and raptor to winXP and premire 6.5 for capture. When I have long captures more than 10 minutes and especially up to 1 hour my audio gets way out of sync. And when I go to project>settings viewer it indicates my frame rate is 29.96 not .97 I have also talked to Canon including the manager at the repair facility at Irvine and all it get is the software tapdance, I much prefer the Texas two step. I have used our Canon RZ60 and a Sony digital and NO PROBLEM. Ihave also just recieved my xl-1 back from a 432.00 servicing. So to me the bottom line is the camera is broke or I paid 5000.00 dollars for a camera that doesn't record at the industrial standard of 29.97.
If the latter is the case I wish Canon would tell me so. If not is there a solution short of stopping my capture every 10 minutes. Thank you (MAHALO) for your time.

ALOHA
Jerry
PS If you are from around Austin is the Broken Spoke still in action.

There is a known issue in that the clock rate of the XL1 audio is a wee bit different from the Sonys and other common MiniDV camcorders, which may cause some audio drift relative to the video. Most of the better NLE/Capture systems have a Canon setting that deals with this, thus it is addressed in software.

XL-1 frame rate

ALOHA Don,

Thanks for the quick reply!I am primarily a camera man who is forced to do some of his own editing and not much of a techie at all. If you know of such a fix or setting for Adobe Premier 6.5 please let me know.

MAHALO

Jerry

Welcome Jerry,
I believe that one of these Adobe Premiere Knowledgebase topics might provide some additional background and guidance on this matter. It is one of those little funky oddities of Canon cameras.

The problem can be more pronounced when you shoot, end-to-end, without stopping. I have never had this problem, but I have know a few who have.

By the way Jerry, things are still kickin' at the Broken Spoke. The Continental Club, my favorite Austin dive, is still in action too.

Hey Jerry....

What have you been working on? It's been years since I'd seen you last. I'm still at the Bulletin but have been doing a fair amount of video work for the last few years. Just in case the Bulletin's future starts looking bleak.

Regarding the audio sync problem, you might want to try this:

Log the clip as a single uninterrupted shot. Don't digitize just yet.

Drop the clip onto a timeline, then cut it up into shorter segments, perhaps 5 to 10 minutes.

Digitize the cut-up timeline. You'll end up with a long uninterrupted video with, it's hoped, audio that will stay in sync.
