Adjusting the Play Delay Offset in Avid

Avid%20Remote.gif

If you have tried to playback you avid timeline on an external monitor you may have noticed your audio and video do not sync up together. The Avid application uses a combination of hardware to provide for full audio and video playback capabilities that could present playback sync issues. With a camera or transcoder connected to your system and a sequence playing in the Timeline, the Composer (desktop) monitor plays back video and audio ahead of the DV device. You can compensate for this by delaying the playback on the Composer monitor by adjusting the number of frames as an offset so that the video and audio play simultaneously to the camera or transcoder and the Composer monitor.

To adjust the offset:

1.In the Project window, click the Settings tab.

2.Double-click Video Display.

The Video Display Settings dialog box opens.
3.Click the Desktop Play Delay slider and drag it to increase or decrease the amount of frame offset.
You might need to readjust the frames a few times to find the correct offset.

4.Click OK.
