View Full Version : Audio/Video Desync - HOW?!?! (Newbie Question)

5th February 2002, 16:56
Ok, maybe I'm just not getting it but I can't grasp why the audio and video get out of sync. If you record something at a frame rate - say 30fps - and it is 5 minutes of video, and 5 minutes of audio then they should just overlay each other. If you change the framerate of the video (keeping it the same time), its still 5 minutes. The audio should still overlay exactly.

So, could someone PLEASE explain to me how audio/video get desync'ed in capturing.

(I understand if you change from 30fps to 15fps, your video is effectively doubled in length unless you cut 50% of the frames out...but that doesnt really explain the captures)
