ok, have shot a bunch of stuff on 7D and used the zoom recorder and have got the eos movie plug in for fcp and also plural eyes for syncing.


Here's what I've done in FCP 7

FCP easy setup - Pro Res 422


Log and Transfer

Selected Canon EOS Movie as Source Format under Import Preferences and selected Apple Pro Res 422 as Target Format.

Added Selection to Queue, then when complete I put the clip on the timeline and my sequence setting are


1920 x 1080 (HDTV 1080i (16:9)

pixel aspect ratio - square

field dominance - none

editing timebase - 25

Compressor - apple pro res 422

audio is

48 kHz

16 bit

channel grouped.


I then lay in both audio tracks from the zoom and use plural eyes but it isn't syncing. Or it starts synced and drifts out

I have tried doing just small sequences ie just on 4min clip and it is still out!

Sorry to be a pain in the arse but is there anything you can see I could do differently
