Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Synching audio with DSLR footage, part of Creative DSLR Video Techniques.
…As I mentioned, syncing the audio to all my videos is…the first big chore of this project, and man it's a chore.…There's nothing really hard about syncing audio,…it's just you have to be really organized,…and you're going to have to search around, and find the clips that go together.…I got a head start on that by getting all of my clips labeled by subject matter.…So I know exactly which ones are my interview, and I…know which ones go together in terms of my multi-camera shots.…So, I have XXA interview 01 Camera A, XXA interview 01 Camera B.…
So it's the first interview, the A part, and then A and B cameras.…I've used these tags in, OS10 Maverick's,…finder which lets me add these color-coordinated tags.…So I,that's just another way that I can try and…keep related things marked so that I know they go together.…And then I've got…to figure out which of my audio files goes with the right video files.…After I've done that, it's just a matter of lining…things up in my image editor until they're in sync.…So I have identified two clips that go together.…
