Re extracting audio -- you'd do that in iMovie. Select the desired clip on the timeline and use the menu option to Extract Audio -- that will copy the audio down to an audio track and lower the volume of the .avi clip to zero. Don't know if the suggestion also included locking the audio clip, but I would use that menu option to keep the new audio track and video in sync (Lock Audio Clip at Playhead).
I did extract and locked it playhead...it did not work. The sound is now like static in an intermittent way. I will copy the original project again to try the other suggestion posted after yours. Needless to say, how much I appreciate your help. Big thanks! I know that it should have worked. Must be something wrong with these movie software, that is not perfect..even final cut pro could have its problems.
Hello! I did what Serhij suggested and again, the QuickTime movie its out of sync.
Now, I would see if our digital camera is capable of accepting back its own avi's and if there is a 16 bit setting to importing them back into Imovie for a whole new project.
More or less what the next post by Klaus shows when you read the link's article.
I guess, this would be my last chance of making it work.
Thank you so much!
Very interesting article..I red it before and I discarded the possibility because the idea is to set a camcorder to 16 bits and I don't have a camcorder..but reading it again I started wondering...if a camcorder have that option, why not try the digital camera? It should be equipped to do it. Soooooo, I am going explore it!
I will post again to let everybody know if hit the jackpot or not. If can solve this problem the victory would be all yours and you'll get your star.
I Too have this problem now, When burning a iMovie with iDVD it's out of Sync by up to 9 mins at the end of the 1hour 16min movie
I have a new iMac with with latest software (checked with Apple's Software update)
I will try the "extract audio"
This was a problem about 5 years ago but was fixed with a update the Quicktime then.
I have now tried "extract audio" no go, sound is scrambled.
I then tried exporting the iMovie to a Quicktime movie then then Burning that with iDVD, NoGo, Sound is out of Sync the same as a straight to iDVD from iMovie.
It's got to be Quicktime that's the problem.
Any help out there from Apple support ????
