How to Sync Audio and Video Premiere Pro CC


allure


If you want to get the best audio for your film and video, recording sound separately from your camera is usually the best strategy. This is how they do it in most high production value programs and movies.

But one of the first thoughts that most people have when they consider this strategy is, “…but this will take a lot of time in post…” That used to be the case but now even Premiere Pro has built-in functionality to sync the footage from your camera with the audio from your field recorder. Check out how easy it is.

This episode shot with the following:
– Nikon D600
– Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8AF-D Lens
– Arri Clone 650 Watt Fresnel (as a key light)
– 5in1 Reflector (used scrim in the middle as a diffuser for the key light)
– ePhoto 4500W Softbox Kit (for rim lighting)
– RODE NTG-2 Shotgun Mic (for live-action footage)
– Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP Audio Interface
