Helpful Hints: Final Cut Pro: Plays fine in sequence, but out of sync on export

September 4, 2016

I recently came across a frustrating issue while editing. The sequence played fine on the time line, but when I opened the exported video in Quicktime, the video and audio were all mixed up. I found this solution at Michael  Wyszomierski’s blog:


If your Final Cut Pro sequence plays fine from the project file, but the audio and video get out of sync or there is a rendering glitch when you export a QuickTime movie, try selecting “Recompress all frames” when you export [File, Export, Quicktime Movie — ‘Recompress all frames’ is an option towards the bottom of the window]. You can also play around with clearing render files, etc., but this one box seems to do the trick.
Thanks, Michael!


The Digital Dilemma

Renowned cinematographer, and Old School New School subject, John Bailey spoke strongly last year on the use of digital technology in the cinema. He references an alarming report published by The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences called The Digital Dilemma.

Some very strong points made as to the dangers and weaknesses of the digital medium’s ability to preserve our cinema heritage.
