Video/ audio editing issues
I’ve got a ‘free’ whistle - the catch is, i have to record some video clips for the maker’s website. No problem, thought i - i have messed around with video editing before and i’m pretty good at audio mixing/ mastering.
Of course, nothing is going to plan.
Recorded video on my laptop’s camera (because i haven’t anything better) and audo on this nifty little Tascam device. Let both run and figured that i’d only need to sync the audio to the video’s (crap) audio once.
Well i’ve been up literally all night, and i can’t get it to sync. It’s a bugger trying to line up the peaks and troughs of the wave-forms, because they’re at different volumes - in fact they look like totally different tracks - and i think there’s a bit of lag in the editing software’s player so i can’t do it by ear. And when i think i’ve got it lined up, i look a bit further in the file and they are clearly not lined up…
Because of this, I also suspect that the video has little glitches in it - when i played the video on its own this appeared to be the case. But as it doesn’t seem to glitch when i’m looking at it in the editing software i can’t be sure. As i don’t know where they are, i can’t correct for them.
Everything of course takes forever because the software is clunky and my computer is dead slow. Any ideas?
