Thanks Nat - your post reassured me that I should be able to do what I wanted to do. I think the difficulty was with the length of the clip (almost an hour), which made it difficult to tweak the audio track just 2 seconds...once I figured out how to zoom in on the track, I was able to do it. I had also failed to "drag" the video clip into the timeline, and that's why it wasn't showing me the option to "unlink from audio". It isn't perfect, but it'll do...for this time. What I have to figure out now is how to prevent Debut from doing the same thing again.
I captured an on-demand video with Debut and saved it as an avi file. The video played on my computer with audio and video perfectly in sync, but when playing back the captured recording, the video "stalls" for a couple of seconds at the beginning, but the audio starts immediately, so they are badly out of synch throughout the whole 1 hour video. I have been playing with VideoPad to try and unlink the audio from the video (it won't unlink by right-clicking on the audio track, but if I right click on the file in the file list it gives me the option to unlink audio). However, I can't for the life of me figure out how to clip the first few seconds of the video track only, so that it will start at the same time as the audio starts.
I'm using the home (free) version of Debut to record an on-demand program during our Hughesnet's "Bonus bytes" hours early in the am so my family can watch the program together later in the day, when it would eat up too much of our daytime data allowance to watch it streaming. When playing the video on demand, the sound and video are perfectly synchronized. But when I capture it with Debut and play it back, the video "stalls" at the beginning, but the audio kicks in immediately, and from that point on the video and audio are out of sync, which is very annoying. I'm working with VideoPad to try to correct the issue, as yet without success (My next post, in the VideoPad forum!) How can I prevent this from happening in the future? I tried playing with the fps rate, but the documentation and suggestions I found didn't indicate in which direction to move the default setting - and I don't have a lot of data allowance to play with for experimentation.
