Have you ever tried to sync up your video and audio tracks, but found it to be a difficult and time-consuming process? If so, you’re not alone! Many people find this process to be frustrating and challenging. From this blog post, you’ll find out how to sync your video and audio in a few simple steps. By following these tips, you can save yourself a lot of time and frustration!


How to sync video and audio using different software?

You can use different tools for synchronizing your sound files with your visuals.

Adobe Premiere Pro

There are a few things to do:

  1. First, make sure that both the audio and video tracks are open in the timeline.
  2. Next, select the audio track and locate the ‘In Point’. This is the point in time where you want your audio to start playing.
  3. Now, use the ‘Selection Tool’ to highlight the section of video that corresponds with the ‘In Point’ on the audio track.
  4. Once you have highlighted the correct section, go to Edit > Copy (or press Ctrl+C).
  5. Next, click anywhere in the timeline where there is no video or audio present and go to Edit > Paste (or press Ctrl+V) so that it will be placed at this location.

Now you should have your video synced up with its corresponding sound file!

Final Cut Pro X

You’ll need to use the ‘Clip Connections’ window:

  1. First, open up both the audio and video files in their own respective windows.
  2. Select the audio file in the ‘Clip Connections’ window, and then click on the ‘+’ symbol below it. This will add an audio connection between the two files.
  3. Repeat this process for the video file.
  4. You should now have a ‘Sync Audio to Video’ checkbox at the bottom of each clip’s information window.
  5. If you want to change the sync position, simply drag the audio and video files around in the ‘Clip Connections’ window.

The audio will move with the video file.

Windows Movie Maker

This process is a little more complicated:

  1. First, you must open the WMM and go to Tools > Options.
  2. Now exit out of it and select your video file.
  3. Open up the timeline (tab on left) if it’s not already opened and drag both audio files into the timeline. They should both be under the video file.
  4. Right click on the audio files and select ‘Properties’.
  5. Go to the ‘Synchronization’ tab and change either the start time or end time so that they match up with your video file. If you changed the start time, make sure you do the same thing for both audio files.

Now you can click OK and save the video file and it should be synced.
