Lesson 5. Adding Audio > Using markers to synchronize clips

Using markers to synchronize clips

When working with audio clips that are not linked to video, you'll occasionally encounter situations where you need to synchronize the audio to the video clip. In this part of the lesson, you'll cut together two clips of a man walking, filmed from different angles. One clip doesn't have audio, so you need to position it so that the footsteps in it match the sound of footsteps in the audio portion of the other walking clip. The most straight-forward method of synchronizing these clips is to insert markers at matching events in both clips.

Using markers

Markers indicate important points in time and help you position and arrange clips. The Timeline and each clip can individually contain its own set of up to ten markers numbered from 0 to 9 and up to 999 unnumbered markers. Markers are only for reference and do not alter the video program (except for markers set up as Web links).

In general, add a marker to a clip in Source view or the Clip window for important points within an individual clip; the added marker and any existing markers in the master clip are included with the clip when you add it to the Timeline or create a duplicate clip. Add a marker to the Timeline or the Program view for significant time points that affect multiple clips, such as when you need to synchronize video and audio on different clips; the added marker appears in both the Timeline and in the Program view, but is not added to any master clips. Timeline markers can also include a comment, a Web link, or a chapter link.
