I was wondering if somebody could help me with an audio synchronization issue. I recorded an interview on a Canon EOS 70 D in 1080 P. The frame rate was set to 25 frames per second (I’m in Europe). I recorded the audio on a Panasonic AVCAM. The camera with the audio was set to 1080 but 24 frames per second (my mistake). Therefore, I’m having trouble synching the audio in FCP X. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might be able to fix this issue? Thanks in advance for your advice.
PS: If it is impossible to synchronize the clips, I might consider trying to sweeten the sound from from the onboard mic. It is really bad though, as it was outdoors and there was a lot of wind (perhaps a Crumplepop plug-in might help?).
It’s been a long time since I had a similar issue. I think I used Sound Devices “Wave Agent” to change the out-of-sync audio file’s metadata. Basically, open the audio file in Wave Agent, enter the sample rate and desired fps and the Wave Agent will adjust the file’s metadata. Hopefully, the file is now in sync. Be sure to back up the original file. I don’t remember if Wave Agent creates a new file or modifies the original file. https://www.sounddevices.com/product/wave-agent-software/
