Out Of Sync ...

Hello All,

I'm using a Sony Z7 (rx'ing on both card and tape) and editing on FCP. The card 'log and transfer' works without a hitch but when I start to 'log and capture' ... the playback (raw or in the timeline) show that the audio follows the picture by around 6 frames.

The settings in FCP are as follows:

Easy Setup
DV-PAL Firewire basic

Video Settings
DV 48khz

Audio Settings
DV 48kHz

Why should there be such a delay in capturing from tapes? I wonder if there's something in the settings that isn't quite right.

I'm also getting a slight vertical shift ... not out of the camera but while watching the capture screen ...

Anyone had the same problems?

I look forward to hearing from you,

Sounds like this could be a NTSC easy capture setup. Press Shift+Q to make sure your easy setup is indeed in PAL mode instead of NTSC.

Hope this helps,

How are you monitoring? On your computer monitor? Or through a converter (DV firewire converter, AJA Io HD, etc... to an external monitor) If you're monitoring through a converter to an external monitor then you need to make sure your audio is going through the converter as well.
