(more) Accurate Audio Sync

KrotoFlik has a great tip for syncing your audio more accurately in Adobe Premiere Pro. Typically, you would zoom in on your sequence timeline and match the sync point by moving your audio clip frame by frame.

Well, if your audio is just one frame off it could cause issues with long-form videos as the audio sync will become more and more out of sync as the video plays.

You can get a more accurate sync by clicking the drop menu icon on the top-right of your timeline.

There you will see the option to view the timeline in Audio Time Units view and with this selected you can zoom in and sync your audio much more precisely!


You can switch back to standard view when your done. But as you can see this is a much better way then adjusting the audio frame by frame.

Adobe Premiere Pro has tons of cool features but not many of us have read the manual all the way through, (or at all) so it’s great to be able to learn new tricks like this.

Typically, one clap from the slate or with your hands has been the traditional why to sync audio and video.

Clapping 3 times offers a much more distinct visual of the sync location and will allow you to sync up your reference camera audio with your external audio recording.  I came across this little trick awhile back and I’ve used it ever since!
