synch using timecode...

Hey folks,

I'm synching a film which had audio recorded seperately from video and I'm synching by finding the first frame of the clapper and setting in points on the video and audio and then merging the clips, this works fine but it's pretty arduous and there's potential for me to be off by a frame, is there a better way of synching by using the timecode? would that eliminate the need for me to find the slate and clap or would I still have to do that?

cheers, any help is appreciated.

If the timecode is jammed, then yes. Otherwise, it's the old fashioned way.
