  • How to ‘auto-sync’ in fcp?

    Posted by Pepijn Klijs on March 20, 2010 at 8:28 am

    Is there a way to do what auto-sync does in avid? I have multiple seperate audio and video clips that need to be merged. Fcp can merge just one clip at a time. Is there a trick to do a whole bunch of them? They clips have the same timecode.

    Pepijn,

    You can’t do it straight out of the box.
    However, there are workarounds.

    Have a look here:

    Download the demo. It comes with a BWF / QT merge application.
    With this app. you can put the BWF inside the QT’s, based on TC and BWF timestamp. Should save you from the tedious manual labour.

    hth,

    Thanks Bouke. But I saved me some money this time by doing every clip manually, using “merge clips”. If this keeps happening I’ll buy your software!
