- I make recordings with a Panasonic DSR-H20 video camera. The resulting files are MPG-2 files.
- I copy the files to my harddisk.
- If I doubleclick such a file, it is played in Windows Media Player. Sound is in sync with the video.
If I open the same file in Pinnacle Studio 9, sound is out of sync.
The problem is already visible in the preview window: if I play a file of 1 minute from the beginning in the preview window, the audio is in sync in the beginning, but in the end the audio is about 5 seconds ahead on the video. So after 55 real seconds the 60 "seconds" of audio have passed and the video has still 5 seconds to go without sound.
If I play only the last 10 seconds of the same file in the preview window, the sound starts in sync, but is drifting 1 second ahead again.
This sync problem is happening everywhere in Pinnacle Studio (I have version 9.4.3): in the preview window, in the edit (timeline) window and also in the final DVD or stream product.
What I already tried...
The Pinnacle support desk advised to re-install Studio 9 and to update the sound card drivers of my HP laptop (with Windows XP SP2), but nothing helped. Finally they said that MPEG-2 is not supported in Studio 9, but this is not true, according the specs on their own site. So now I hope that one of you knows more about this issue.... Please?
