So, I've just been given an editing project and I'm having some headaches. Basically, I've been given a mini DV tape by a guy who's cheap, no-name DV camera won't export DV (only stills and analogue video). I've borrowed a Canon DM-XM1 from a friend so that I can import the video into my PowerBook and edit it. The problem I'm having is that the audio (both the imported audio and the audio played back on the camera itself) is atrocious! It clicks and goes all static-y. Also, towards the end of the footage, the dialogue is out-of-sync. I've tried importing into both Quicktime 7 Pro and iMovie (I'm gunna have a go with FCP 4.5 next) and I'm having the same problem in both applications. I've watched it on the guy's crappy DV camera and it's fine, but playback on the Canon is terrible. From what I can tell, the audio was recorded onto the DV tape at 12-bit 32KHz... I think... Could it be that the Canon is trying to play back the audio at a higher sample rate? I'm totally confused here .
