Autosync with timecode in Premier Pro?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to batch autosync sound and video using timecode in Premier Pro CS6? I know this can be done in Avid and FCP.

There seem to be a merge clip with timecode function in Premier Pro, but this only lets you sync one at a time. What I would like to know is of there is a way to batch sync the files.

Thanks Snubisnax. I did see that thread prior to posting on here. I was hoping there was a trick someone here knows that some of the Adobe forum guys don't know. Guess the answer is no after all. :)

Yeah, plural eyes is probably your best bet for batch auto sync, but even then, it's kind of pointless because you can't subclip a sequence in premiere.

 

If it's an option, Avid is good for batch sycning with timecode/in point/out point/first frame/etc and it doesn't require third party software or round tripping.

I doubt anyone would edit with Premiere if Avid is an option

Yes a lot of clients do use Premiere these days. The fact that it can import and edit native RED R3D files is a selling point. It's unfortunate that the audio capabilities of Premiere is so limited.

FWIW, you can autosync R3D and timecode matched BWF in Resolve Lite 10 beta. You can export an XML and import into Premiere. However, you can't merge the files after importing that XML. Either that or, there is some other trick to it.

Any solution on that problem about not having the option to merge clips coming from an xml?
