Checking for time code deviations
|Top Previous Next|
When you have a useable recording with video and audio in sync you must check the third factor: time code. It is being generated by the computer with a certain number of frames per second (default: 25) in compliance with an ideal demand that not a single frame is dropped in the process.
Sometimes that really happens, but usually there are small deviations that have to be corrected before you can start working. If the number of dropped frames is unusually high, please check the troubleshooting guide.
Below are some examples of how many frames are dropped when using the PicVideo MJPEG codec V2 (or how few, if you choose to look at it that way) .
Okay, so some frames are missing (and sometimes extra frames are added). What do we do about it?
