Syncing Dual System Audio in Premiere Pro
Learn how the Multi-Camera feature in Premiere works much better for syncing dual system sound than the old Merge Clips feature. Separately recorded audio can be automatically synced to your video using Audio, Time Code, In/Out points or Markers. Merge Clips requires you to know what clips belong together, it’s slow, it messes with the way my favorite shortcuts Q and W work, and it makes linking back to the original files a bit of a mess.
Using Multi-Camera auto-syncing instead, I don’t need to know what clips belong together, it’s much faster, I can still use Q and W as I normally do, and I can get the original files back with a right-click. Automatic, fast and easy. Watch the video tutorial and learn about the huge advantages of the Multi-Cam approach over the Merge Clips feature.

The upcoming book The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro will be the most comprehensive book on Premiere Pro ever, featuring a lot of previously unknown info on Premiere. This book dives much deeper into the software than all previous books on editing in Premiere, and when you master these techniques you will be editing a lot faster with less hassle and more confidence, and you’ll get better results.
The release is now very close! The book is written, and the layout done! The last chapter needs proofreading, and I will add a cover and a table of content and then stitch the chapters together in InDesign.
