Auto-sync with timecode issue

PostFri Nov 24, 2017 4:37 pm

Hi,

I have a DNG-clip with a two-channel audiotrack of scratch audio. Also i have four audio-clips from a Zoom H6:

- a stereo-track
- a -20db back-up of that stereo-track
- a mono-track from a lav mic
- a mono track from another lav mic

I made sure the timecodes are in order using Tentacle Sync.

What i want is to add the four tracks of those files to the DNG-clip in Resolve's media panel using 'Auto-sync Audio Based on Timecode and Append Tracks', but I can't get this to work. Resolve will only ever append one track (with either one or two channels, depending on whether i select the stereo or the lav). I never end up with a dng-clip with five-track/eight-channel audio i want.

Is there a way to do this or do i have to merge the audio files into one file with four one-or-two channel tracks first?

Hi Tim,
In DR, with LTC protocol, it's necessary to select first, >Update timecode from Audio LTC<, before selecting > Audio Based on Timecode and Append Tracks<.

Tim, can you post screen capture of your sync'd clip's audio properties?
Resolve 14.3 Studio. GTX 970 with GeForce 390.77 driver. Desktop Video 10.9.10. Intensity Shuttle USB 3.0. Windows 10 Pro.
