Some cameras and other recording devices differ in how they handle internal video and audio file synchronisation, as well as in how they accept timecode, and this can have some consequences for timecode syncing.
It is important to ensure when using timecode for the first time, that your camera of choice is compatible with an external timecode generator.
While the Wireless PRO system is perfectly synchronised internally between the receiver and transmitters, there’s a small chance that your video and audio may be out of sync by a tiny amount depending on a wide range of variables in the other equipment you’re using (this disparity could measure 1 or 2 frames in extreme cases).
Even with this in mind, it is still significantly quicker to use timecode to synchronise your files and then adjust them by a frame or two. We recommend you record a clap that’s visible and audible on all of your video and audio recording equipment. Once you’ve synchronised your files using timecode, this can be used as a reference point for nudging your video or audio if it’s needed.
