Default Video Editing

Does anyone do any audio editing for a video in Pro Tools.

I'm working on the audio part of a short, 7min, video a friend is doing, and editing on another machine, using Avid.
When I cut out a part of the audio anything after the cut goes out of synch as far as watching the video goes,,,, lips don't match sound etc.
Do you know how to cut out parts of the sound part and the video will cut too so things will match?

Thanks.

GtrDude.

switch your editmode to slip, and not to shuffle. You shouldnt move anything to the left or right on the timeline, as that will put it out of sync as you found out....

I had it on Slip.
What I need is to be able to move it and cross fade after I cut otherwise I'll have a spot with no audio and a moving video.

Thanks.

Sorry...i dont understand.

You want to move the audio, and yet you dont want to get it out of sync. Considering you only do the audio, those sound contraversy (or i am completely misunderstanding you.....)


FWIW...i am a video-editor by profession....


If you have to deal with filling up the empty spaces with silence....use some silence from that room. Just before a take, just after a take ends, or from the ambience track especially recorded for this....

Sounds like he wants to cut out some audio AND have the video cut out too so that the audio and video "match", meaning there's not a lot of silence between the audio portions with only video happening. If that is the case, not with PT. PT only edits the audio, same for most high end audio for video programs. You'd have to bounce out the audio - if you can - and take it into a video editing program and then cut the video to match the audio. If it's just a quick and dirty solution you're looking for, get Vegas Video, it will do both video and audio editing.

If he wants to leave the audio alone to the right of the editing - I learned the hard way to always edit left to right - he can only be in slip or grid mode. Sounds like he was inadvertantly in shuffle mode and didn't realize it. Best bet is to put up the original audio matched to the video on one track and copy it to another track. Lock the original in place and edit away on the copy. Then if anything gets out of synch with the video, he can match it back up with the original on the locked track.

Cheers,

The Weed,
You got it. That's exactly what I want to do. Cut the audio and the video would cut at the same time, same spot, then slide it together and cross-fade.
I was in slip mode though. I use it 99% of the time.
I will buy the book that dcarlson247 told me about.

Thanks.

GtrDude.

Well, that may be what you want to do, but as I said in my previous post, you can't do that in PT. PT only edits the audio, not the video. Sorry

Cheers,
