The Merge Clip feature in Adobe Premiere Pro simplifies the process of synchronizing audio and video, which are recorded separately.
To merge clips in the Project panel, use the following steps:
- Select the video and audio clips in the Project Panel to be merged.
- Right-click and select "Merge Clips…"
- If desired, rename the clip.
- Choose "Audio" as the Synchronize Point.
- Choose Track Channel from one of the following options:
- If only one input is recorded into the TASCAM (TEAC Audio Systems Corp American Corp), select "1."
- If multiple inputs are recorded into the TASCAM, select the primary channel number, or choose "Mix Down."
- Select "Remove Audio from AV Clip." This removes the camera audio from the resulting clip, leaving you with only TASCAM audio.
- Click "OK." Adobe Premiere Pro will process a new clip in which the audio from your TASCAM recording is in sync with the video from your camera.
- Right-click on the resulting new clip in the Project panel.
- Select "Modify > Audio Channels…"
- Change Number of Audio Clips from 2 to 1, then click the gray area.
- Verify that Media Source Channel shows only one clip and that box "1" is checked off. This step removes the empty audio track from the merged clip.
- Drag the resulting merged clip from your project into your timeline.
- Edit like any other clip.
