    I am syncing clips to separately recorded audio. I understand how to use Autosync with either TC or in points. My issue is that I have one long video clip, but for some reason I have multiple audio clips that need to be married to it. I don’t want to break the clip up; just have the external audio “laid in” where it should go. I can’t figure out how to do this. Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    Does it have common timecode? If so, try grouping the elements rather than syncing. You can use the group clip as source, or create a sequence from the now grouped clip, commit multicam, then AutoSync the sequence to make a new subclip. You may need to tweak the sequence a bit as mentioned in this blog:

    Some of the steps described should get you on your way.

    In this particular instance; there is no common TC.

    Thanks for the link! It works beautifully to a point. There is an edit point where the second bit of audio comes in. I can’t autosync the sequence if there is an edit point.

    I’ll continue to play around with this to see if I can get it to work in this instance.
