How to Synchronize Video and Audio in Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere Pro Editing

Syncing audio to a video while you are editing in Adobe Premiere Pro can be frustrating a times. If you’re trying to help someone speaking to do match up words, or the audio of someone singing, it can be difficult to do precisely. And, if you don’t sync them well, you may finally end up with some awkward work. 

If you had to record video and audio separately, and you have two different files that you want to edit together, there are some few ways to do this with the Adobe Premiere Pro. 

You can do a more better automatic sync, or you can sync the files manually. Synchronizing video and audio manually is what you will have to do if you are having difficulty with Premier matching up the audio itself. Otherwise, automatic syncing is very easy and works more often. 

How to Automatically Synchronize the Audio to Video

In order for you to be able to automatically sync audio to video in Adobe Premiere Pro, first you’ll need to have the audio and the video files both that you are going to sync up on your timeline in thePremiere. The original audio file for the video file will need to be available, as this is what Premiere will use to synchronize the separate audio file.

1. Once you have both files are on the timeline, select both clips. 

2. Then you'll right-click on the video file and select Synchronize.

3. When the next window appears, you’ll now have to select the audio file to sync it. Then select OK. The audio should now be synced up to your video and play accordingly. 

We also have a second method to automatically sync up audio and video if you'll want to try another route instead. 

1. To do this method, you’ll be merging both files together and Premiere will sync the audio up. First, you find the audio and video files you want synced, and then you hold Ctrl (PC) or Command (Mac) and select them. Then you choose Merge Clips. 

2. When the Merge Clips window pops, select Audio. Then select OK. You’ll get a new file of the merged audio and video both together in your imported media. You can now drag this onto your timeline to begin use. 

How to Sync Audio to Video Manually 

If possible that Premiere didn’t sync your audio and video as precisely as you wanted, or you’re having any issues with the automatic methods, you can also sync your audio by a manual process. 

1. For manual syncing, first put both the original video and the audio you want to sync to the video on your timeline. In the audio channels, drag the slider handlebars on the right-hand side of the timeline to widen the video file’s external audio and also the internal audio. 

2. Through this way, you’ll be able to see the peaks of the audio. Now look for the similarities between the external and internal audio, and line them up so that they match. Then, you can now replay the video to see if the audio matches up the way you'll want it to be. Once you’re satisfied with it, you can delete the internal audio so the external, new audio will be the only track that is playing. 

Few Tips for Syncing Audio to Video In Adobe Premiere

If you want to easily sync your audio up to a video in Adobe Premiere Pro, there are some other tips you can follow that will make the process go very much smoothly. 

1.  First Create an Audio Sync Point

To make syncing easier for both the manual and automatic methods, you can create a point near the beginning of your audio when you are actually filming that will make it easy to match up with the internal and external audio.

The term for this method is called “clapping,” and in many productions a clapboard is normally used for this. However, any sudden, loud sound that will create a high peak in your audio waveforms will work. This makes it pretty simple to match up audio from differing sources, as you can just locate that first large peak. It also makes it a lot easier for Premiere to synchronize your audio. 

2. Using Audio Time Units

Another way to make audio syncing easier when you’re use of manual method to change the time units at the top of your timeline. To do this just right-click on the timecode that is above your timeline and select Show Audio Time Units. 

This will give you the ability to move your audio files in a much smaller increments, allowing you more precise synchronization.
