HDV audio Lag
So, it appears that audio drifint gout of synch on my XHA1 is fairly standard, and to be expected from HDV on long clips. My question is, "is there a work around?" I know programs like HDVsplit split up and re-synch M2T files, but that it still doesn't support canon's 24F. I need to able to capture 60minute clips and not have to resynch each tape everytime.

Name your NLE please

An audio sync problem is NOT to be expected from HDV and it is most definitely not standard.

If you're recording out of sync, that's a defect. Play back the tape in camera and watch it in the viewfinder or the LCD screen. If it's in sync, then there's no problem with the camera. The problem would be in your editing system.

I don't know if this relates to your issue, but just for fun I installed FCP on my 12" iBook, loaded some clips, and they played back out of sync. I moved the project files, along with the captured clips over to the G5, and everything was fine. So while my iBook will capture properly, it won't play back HD properly, which I pretty much expected. All of this was in 24p, capturing in the FCP HD1080P24 setup and editing in a 24P timeline.

Sorry guys,my NLE is adobe premiere pro 2.0

I have a 2.4 GHZ dual core processor, 3gb of ram, 2 Nvidia 7600 GTSA cards linked through SLI and 1 terabyte of space internal (2X500gb)

My comp is plenty fast for HD, but it seems otr capture out of synch. My camera plays it back perfectly in synch mind you, so it is a capture problem, not a camera problem.

My bussy Mike Wong (also on these boards) says he has alwaus had this problem with HDV.

Is it jsut a matter of my comp STILL not being fast enough? 2.4 dual core is as fast as the top G5's

Moved from Canon XH to Attend the World Premiere. HDV audio sync issues are usually caused by inadequate NLE system resources, most commonly insufficient RAM.

Bill Pryor March 15th, 2007 09:17 AM

His 3 gigs of RAM ought to be enough. It's gotta be some other NLE issue, I think. It seems as if most people shooting HDV today are using FCP and some Avid Xpress Pro, and I don't know of any problems with either of those systems. My iBook obviously is way underpowered to play back HDV, but as I discovered, the stuff is actually captured in sync because when I moved everything to the G5, it played fine. A friend of mine just got one of the new bisexual Mac laptops, so we'll see soon how that does with HDV.

No worries about it anymore Matt,


As for the problem, I noticed this happening later on occasion with LARGE files and would only happen within the NLE and not during normal playback, so I would assume it to be some sort of insufficient resource issue while runnign the NLE. I too use PP2.0 and was somewhat worried that in order to keep audio in sync I would have to manually use MPEG Womble and cut up the files, which would have sucked!
