This is as much a workflow question as it is anything else, but I have a difficult problem to solve and I have no idea how to solve it.
Short version--I recorded a podcast episode with what were supposed to be separate audio tracks, but somehow audio from my end is audible on the other party's end (I think they forgot to mute speakers or something). Anyway, the two videos are of different frame rates, and even if I align them perfectly at the start, within seconds the audio is badly out of synch. To make matters worse, Premiere is telling me they both have variable frame rates, even though the service I use says they're videos with a constant frame rate.
What do I do here? I've already tried running them through Handbrake to get a consistent frame rate, to no avail. I've tried setting them both to comps that are 29.97 fps, again to no avail. This is a problem I've never run into before so I'm not quite sure how to go about solving it. Help?
I went ahead and tried it (forgot I could re-download these clips a smany times as I need to), "Preserve Frame Sync" is selected on both clips. One of them still gets out of sync after a few seconds no matter how precisely I position it on the timeline.
