I just finished mixing this indie short and I exported the stereo track out of Pro tools. I gave it to the director and he put the track in final cut to put it to video and export the final video. Problem is, severe audio sync drift.
Turns out inside PT10 the framerate is somehow 30.1 FPS, which is crazy to me, I have no idea how thats even possible. The audio is totally in sync thru the whole film in PT, but it drifts very quickly in final cut. Any idea how this is possible?
Sometimes, depending on the capture settings in FCP, if the audio is imported into the FCP sequence via drag n drop there will be a sample rate conversion applied, whereas if they choose Import from the File Menu this does not happen.
So I bounced the final mix as a quicktime movie file and everything is perfectly in sync. Just to test it, I then imported that bounced .mov back into PT and it's still 30.1, just in sync. <3 Sync issues...
