Audio out of sync Please Help!!

Ok so i have a little problem. I record a gaming video at 30fps and when i finish the recording and save the video and look at the properties of the video it is in 30fps so its not my recording software thats the issue. When i click file and new i have it set at 1920x1080p and 30 fps so. when i import it, it imports in at 29 fps. Its not really a big deal because i can go into media setting and change the fps up to 30 but i have SEVERAL clips and its annoying to have to do it to everyone of them any way i can save it so that the default import fps is at 30fps? instead of 29? Yes i do have the box checked where it imports the settings of the video

    Sounds like your video is using a Variable frame rate, which pretty much all screen capturers do. I would convert the video first to a fixed frame rate, and convert it to an editing format while you are at it, and that should clear up the issue and improve performance, all in one go.

    Axel is correct, especially if you used Nvida shadowplay, which is definitely a variable frame rate recorder. You should transcode your footage to a constant framerate format. Mpeg Streamclip and Handbrake are both free. 

    In Hitfilm once you have your footage in a constant fps, if you drop a clip on the edit timeline and it's a different fps than the project Hitfilm SHOULD detect this and ask if you want to change editor framerate to match the footage. 

  • Like I said, I have multiple clips and running 20 clips through handbrake will take many hours any other advice?

    Transcode while you sleep. If your footage IS variable frame rate, this is your only solution. 

  • Ok thanks for all the help :)
