I rendered a talking scene in visionlab but when I went to edit it and put the audio on the video it didn't match up. Thanks for you're help.

The speed of the project when you set it up is crucial, as that's what the result will be.
For instance if the project is set 25fps, and you import a 30fps file, it will export slow.
Could that have hapenned?

Yeah it probably did. I know I've messed around with it before but i can't remember where to do this. Is it on the box that pops up when going into VisionLab?

Yep, that's the one. That's the only time you can set the framerate, so make sure when you start a project you set the framerate the same as your clip, or you'll lose sync on the audio :,-(

Where do you find the frame rate? I tried to go under properties but the frame rate wasn't on there.

Okay. Open up Vision Lab and then select your video clip. Then the project settings box will be displayed and the framerate is one of those options. Here, take a look at the screen shot.
As far as I know, you cannot change the framerate once you have opened the clip. So, you'll need to start a new project as I understand it. If you have already done a fair bit of work, export each layer as a preset and then drag them onto the properly setup clip. Sorry, there isn't an easier way that I'm aware of.

Well I was wondering how you find the frame rate of the raw clips. But I found it under properties in Movie Maker. Thanks Guys.

Oh, for that go under the media box in Vision Lab and right click on your clip to select properties. Then the frame rate will be displayed, regardless of your project settings. Sorry for the misunderstanding, glad you've got it sorted mate.

Generally speaking it's worth making sure you know what kind of footage you're using right from the start, too. Don't wait until you get to the editing suite.

Thanks Tarn, I was wondering if you could do that. Great to know.

How do you tell what fps you video is doing?

Your camera's manual will tell you the format of the video it creates. If it doesn't, their website will.

Thanks. So if it uses (I'm not sure what it uses, but this is just an example) 20 fps, and I set it to 10 fps, it will be choppy even in my NLE?
Also, does Visionlab set the clip to the correct frame rate by itself?

If the original footage was 20 fps and you set it to 10, it would play back at half the proper speed.
If you create a new project using the "Select movie" option, then VisionLab automatically reads all the necessary info from the clip you choose. If you create a new project with a blank timeline, it is up to you to enter the correct info into the Project Settings.
