My DVCPRO HD footage is 10% faster than the audio, HELP!! 8 years, 7 months ago #19697

Hi,

I shot a corporate video on DVCPRO HD 720p50 onto a P2 card. When I view it in the log and transfer window in FCP studio 2 it seems fine. However when I transfer the clips into the project, the footage is 10% faster than the audio. The audio is at the right speed which means the footage looks slightly fast and out of sync. I have been using the P2 workflow for a while and never had this problem. Any ideas?

Thanks

Martin

Do you still have the footage on the P2 card? It sounds like an import problem. If you still have it check it on the camera. If you're not already using it the program Raylight might be able to help you. I haven't checked into it myself, but I know it's been a great tool for others using P2 on a Mac.

After searching and searching i found one forum that suggested I try the preferences in the log and transfer window. There is an option to disable pulldown and frame duplication or something like that. I unchecked that box and then when I tranfered it again it was fine. Strange. Thanks for the reply Martin.

Cheers

So if it syncs up after you uncheck the pulldown and frame duplication, it looks like you needed those extra frame(s).  720P50 would be a PAL (25fps) timebase?  Were you shooting at "24"?  Maybe those two fields were being made up and reinterpreted...?

Anyway 24/25 would be more like 4%, but you're saying 10...
