    Not able to sinc video and audio files...

    I'm having issues trying to sinc my non slated footage with my audio files (shooting on the Canon C500 MKII). We were jam sinc'd for timecode and when I check the source settings of both the video and audio files, the timecodes seem to be in the same range, yet when I highlight the files in separate bins and then right click and hit autosinc - source timecode, it says "Selected clips do not have common timecodes". When I try AUX 1 or TC24 and other options, it simply says the files have no timecode... 

    When I imported the audio (the video files I'm trying to link it to are merely sourced), I selected 23.98 on the left, but on the right where it showed the timecode for each file there was a 24 in paranthesis next to it (24). I'm wondeirng if this means it was recorded with timecode set for 24, however my sound operator is adamant that he recorded at 23.98...

    Heads up that I have never used auto sinc before, I usuall ymanually sinc or do Multigroups with multi cams, therefore I could be doing the AutoSinc method totally wrong in the first place...

    Any help would be amazing!!!!

    Try copying the video and audio clips to a new bin. Select them both then try autosync.

    You can also select your video clips, and right-click to select "AutoSequence."

    This will string out your clips according to TC, so do the same with your audio clips, then edit the audio sequence onto your video sequence according to TC, or an offset if it's consistently off.

    Re: Not able to sinc video and audio files...

    Thanks, Pat. This is working sometimes, other times I get the error message again and then only some of the clips are linked and even those are missing tracks. What I've noticed is if I select the first 10 to 15 tracks and then do the same for the audio tracks and do it, then it works. I'm guessing that some have two video clips for one audio when the sound never cut, is there any way to simply this?

    Awesome, Jason. This seems to work, however once I have them all in the same sequence, how do you suggest going about editing from there? I would prefer to pick my selects in separate bins and edit off another timeline, so ideally just having the clips grouped together in a bin to select from would be preferable to scrubbing through an entire timeline...

    Subsequence each individual take from that sequence (make sure no cuts or filler live in each subsequence). Select those subsequences in the bin and hit AutoSync.

    Depends on how you like to work.

    You can do what Job suggested, or you can edit FROM the sequence (or multiple sequences based on this one). This is how I work; I sequence EVERYTHING, drag that into the source monitor, and hit the hot key to view the Source sequence (which I've mapped to my left hand). In my opinion it's by far the fastest way to fly through your material.
