How to Master Video Editing in Blender

  1. Kenan: Inspired by your video I was trying to edit some footage off my Canon EOS 550D (a.k.a. Rebel T4i, I think). I discovered two annoying audio problems (and possibly a solution):

    1) I was using what the camera calls "24" frames per second, but inspecting the MOV file in VLC Player showed it is actually 23.98 frames. Blender also has this rate in its list, so people should be careful of blindly choosing "24".

    2) In Blender, the audio would not sync properly when playing back the clip, unless I chose the AV Sync option in the Timeline's Playback menu... but this also slowed down playback too much. The camera's audio is at 48 kHz, so I went to the User Preferences, System panel, and discovered a 44.1 kHz there, so I set this to 48... but no use... still no sync. A search on the web revealed there is another Audio setting in the Scene panel, and this was also set to 44100. I set this to 48 kHz and all was sorted - perfect sync - and speedy playback.

    I have not tested if some of these settings are irrelevant, but at least I got my audio synced!
