Okay... what am I doing wrong?

A bunch of footage (shot from an iPhone, I believe) was dumped on me, and it's all variable frame rate. It's completely uneditable in Premiere, because the audio and video are immediately out of sync. I've studied the VFR FAQ repeatedly, and I must be doing something wrong, because after selecting one of the offending clips, opening it in the source monitor, then clicking the Effect Controls panel, there is no "MPEG Source Settings" effect (which is where, according to the FAQ, the Preserve Audio Sync option is supposed to be. When the clip is selected, the Master effect control panel is completely empty. The one for the sequence has the usual stuff in it, but not the MPEG Source Settings thing.

Help?

Hi Jason,
I have the same issue here. Driving me crazy..

Did you ever find out why the "MPEG Source Settings" effect was not showing?
Thanks!

For a lot of VFR media in a project I still recommend using Handbrake to transcode to CFR before using in Premiere if there's any sign of trouble.

I agree,  depending on the device used to record the video; the VFR capabilities on Premiere Pro seem to be unreliable. Hit or miss at this point!

Not sure but there might not be a MPEG Source Settings as the footage is H.265.

My footage was recording on a Surface Pro built-in camera app.  It's H.264 mp4 footage.

HI! What edition do you use? It only appears on CC 2018 and newer versions of Premiere Pro.

Same here.  Thank you for the post... saved me a few moments to take screenshots of my own as they would have been exactly what you displayed.
