I filmed an event with two cameras and I need to sync the second camera footage with the audio of the first. This was a live event and I couldn't record sync aids like a clapper.
I name my video files after the timestamp from the camera, and I figured I could use this to do the sync. So for instance, I have one clip with name
VID-2017-04-22-11-09-26.mov and another with name
VID-2017-04-22-11-16-22.mov, so I can work out that the second clip ended 6 minutes and 56 seconds after the first. (The camera only knows when you finished filming and created the file, and the naming convention puts hh-mm-ss as the last three pairs of numbers.)
So I figured that I could just note the spot on the timeline where clip 1 ends and place clip 2 so that it ends at that time plus 6:56.
But when I did this, it was totally wrong, and I can't figure out why. The only variable I can think of it that the frame rate of this footage is 59.94 while the sequence is 23.976fps. But I'm not sure if that's relevant, and if so, I still can't figure out how to place these clips.
Meanwhile, I'm stuck syncing the very hard way, by watching the clip and manually trying to find the matching footage from camera 1, and this is painfully tedious.
From comments posted, I realize I wasn't clear. Both clips are from the same camera, which is camera 2. I have synced the first of these clips from camera 2 manually with camera 1, and now I need to sync the remaining clips from camera 2 with each other.
The workflow was this: I set camera 1 on a tripod to film the speaker continuously (but rather boringly). I walked around with camera 2 for more dynamic angles, sometimes pausing between shots. So camera 2 has about 25 different clips, which I want to line up with camera 1, and then cut between them to make a more interesting video.
