merged clips and dual-system sound in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5

When you record audio from a device other than your camera, you often want to be able to synchronize the externally recorded audio with the video and manipulate this audio together with the video as if it were a single asset. With the Merge Clips command in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5, you can do exactly that. You can use markers, In points, Out points, or timecode of clips from separate devices to synchronize them as part of the merge process or before merging.

This way of working with audio is often referred to as dual-system sound, and it’s especially common when recording video with HDSLR cameras and other devices that don’t typically include high-quality audio input hardware.

To see how to merge clips and synchronize audio and video tracks, see this video on the Video2Brain website and this video on the EventDV website.

In this video, Jason Levine shows how to use the Merge Clips command, as well as demonstrating a few other improvements in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5.
