    Been having this issue for the last 2 weeks. Our reels are all in sync. When we build the show into a screening timeline, on the assistant editor system the timeline is fully in sync. When the editor opens the timeline the show goes 10 frames out sync where we have to subtract 10 frames to get it back in sync on one of the audio tracks at the reel join between R3 and R4. I’ve cleared the renders in R4, rebuilt the show but but still having the issue. Where it’s fine on the assistant system but when the editor opens it, it’s out of sync. I’m baffled as to what can be causing it. Anyone experience this before? Or know what could be causing this? I know usually it’s a corrupt audio dissolve in the timeline I can easily locate around the area of where it goes out of sync but in this case I cannot locate it and it keeps happening in the same spot when we join the reels.

    Known issue. The sync engine isn’t notified of changes from the file system if it originates outside of the OneDrive folder. Hence, it doesn’t know there’s something to upload when you a new file into the folder. As you have discovered, clicking pause then unpause is the work around to kick the sync engine into rescanning all the folders to discover changes that need to be uploaded.
