It depends on the shoot. Most of the time i used a clapper board or other noise signature to help with the syncing.

Latest video for a client. Used a masking technique for the first time, Client is happy with it.

http://youtu.be/1jOwRdrt7lw

The video quality is not under my control as the client only takes the video when convenient for them. I record the audio on a quality mic/recorder combo and sync in post editing, plus I top and tail the video for the clients website.

The key is to get good audio to being with
There is a way to do that-
make sure the clip is shifted a bit away from the start point so you have some leeway
unlink video and audio
look at audio properties, find the start time box
while the video is playing put the cursor in the start time box and scroll with the mouse wheel- you can shift the audio backwards and forwards while watching & listening

Hi Mac, you have lost me there, can you do a demo video to show what you mean. I just use audio signature marks and look at the audio waveform to to get the synchronising done.

What i would like to see is a way of moving the secondary audio track left and right in minute (maybe 1 second increments) for accurate alighnment.

I'm sorry I don't know how to do it as a video but I'll try to explain...
  • shift your linked tracks, audio and video, a bit to the right so the starting time is maybe 10secs on the timeline.
  • then unlink the audio and video using the link/unlink button
  • right click on the audio track and look at properties
  • in the properties pane you will see a start dialogue which contains this: 0:00:10/00 (assuming your clip starts at 10 seconds) This specifies a start time on the timeline in hr:min:sec/frame
  • put your cursor in the dialogue box on the part 0:00:10/00 which specifies seconds
  • scroll with mouse wheel and you will see the 10 increasing or decreasing and the audio clip sliding left and right in one second increments
  • So you can scroll in increments of minutes:seconds/frames

now the best bit is you can also do this while the video is running so the audio will slip in and out of sync and you can hear it!
When you get the sync the way you want it click the link button to link the audio and video together once more.
I hope this makes sense...

Mac, you're brilliant! That is a great tip, never thought or knew it could do that. I even raised this issue with Serif Support last year and they didn't come up with that trick.

Do you mind if I do a video on this? I will credit you in it. It will make syncing audio even faster and more accurate now.

I love using MvP X6 and use it for all my projects at Uni (studying Digital Film and Screen Arts) here's a few links to projects i've made over the last 18 months or so. Enjoy

I way prefer using MvPx6 to any of the programs that we are asked to use at the uni as this does everything that the more expensive packages do but is alot more user friendly

Smile Re: Let's see your MvP produced movie

Ok Ladies and Gents, here's a few early attempts on MvP6 I made and placed on youtube.

I enjoy my photography and motorcycling and each help the other. I also really enjoy food photography and creating menus and vids for my local tapas bars in my spare time - I don't ask for anything from them but a few drinks etc are always welcome!. The problem is the success it has brought. The publicity is generating more and more enquiries for other bars and even small companies. I suppose the in-word is that it's going "viral"!

On the camera side I have a GoPro3 Silver with too many mounts to mention, Sony Bloggie, Nikon 5200 with various lenses and my Samsung mobile (for those quick capture moments)

On the bike side I have 2 Triumphs (A 1600 Thunderbird and a 1050 Tiger) and 3 Harleys (2 Classic Sportsters and a V-Rod Muscle)

Where I live is great for photography and Biking so I'm regularly out and about capturing pics and footage. Almeria is where the Clint Eastwood / Sergio Leone Spaghetti Westerns were filmed.

Ok, so on to my first attempts...quite basic when I look back

If you had a few too many the night before this one might be too much!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rYsCuFpUKk

This one is quite a long one but shows one of my favourite rides. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EimAUeZU2wE

If you want to see more, just search peteinalmeria on youtube. I'll be posting some new vids soon as I have learned so many things over the last 4 months - even tricks that I have not found in the guides

Bye for Now!!

Roqstar - saw the Curry on Cooking. Like the techniques! Especially good on the falling ingredients!

What a fun video/day/event! What a great use of MoviePlus transitions and the blending of on-camera sound and added up beat sound tracks.

Couple of things jumped out at me, if you don't mind my saying. The cameras needed polarizing filters on them.
I wanted to hear MANY MORE engines running.

thanks for the comments.
I'll try a some Polarizing filters, I've been trying to get a better looking pictures but for some reason I did not think of that.
I had recorded lots more engines, as that these events I find lots of the driver like to discus the roar of their exhausts. but a lot were not suitable due to other noises (children shouting like on the f-type bit)or sound brakeing down. (I forgot to take the microphone so the sound is from the cameras microphone, quite good for most things but loud engine roars brake up.

here's a trail running short film that i've edited in MPX5. The title was a bit complex but seems to work ok.
