Ever notice your audio slowly moving out of sync as your playhead continues down the timeline in Final Cut Pro?  This is usually because the camera settings were incorrect.  Before you begin editing you must make sure of your camera settings, especially when it comes to setting the audio data rates and video frame rates within the camera.

It is important to set the audio to 16-bit in order to get 48 kHz audio.  Most cameras are preset to record with 12-bit audio, so this is a setting you usually have to change.  If you import 12-bit audio into Final Cut, there is a chance that the video clips will slip out of sync from the audio clips.

Once you have your camera settings, you will have to match those settings within Final Cut Pro, to let the application know the specific sample rate which you have recorded your audio.  To configure the capture settings go to the Final Cut Pro menu > Audio/Video Settings.  The Audio/Video Settings dialog box appears.
