    Avid Media Compopser Adrenaline out of sync

    I would like to submit an issue that were facing at the moment with the use of  our Adrenaline Media composer 1.6.

    It’s a PAL/625 project in which we acquire a low quality video (20:1) from a Sony MSW-A2000P Vtr.

    After the editing is finished all the video is discarded to be replaced back with a high quality video using the batch digitize item.

    Only audio is kept.

    By the end of the process we recognize a “out of sync” of 6 or 12 frames between audio and the new video.

    Please note that  the Time code is always correct but the video which used to be in sync eventually goes out.

    We’ve been talking to the Avid dealer in Rome who suggested to load M.C.A. version 2.1.8 to the Work station.

    We even reloaded the Windows 2000 O.S.

    Eventually we changed the Sony MSW-A2000P with a new one but nothing  fixed the problem.

    We think that this problem may be dued to the kind of Vtr in use matched with the template selected among the ones loaded in the Workstation.

     I’m sending a table with all the templates and their main features that I’ve found in the utilities menu as attached file.

    This issue only appears with the Sony MSW-A2000P while it doesn’t  happen when the Vtr in use is a Panasonic AJ-D455E DVC.

    What seems to be weird is that we have several templates for the Sony MSW-A2000P  and some of them have different, or missing features for the same VTR (refer to the table attached).

    Let me tell you that we only change the Vtr and use the same project always in the same manner when we face this problem.

    This only seems to happen with the Sony MSW-A2000P.

    I’ve been to the Avid Media Composer Adrenaline Support Centre doc n. 8927 created the 12/22/05, finding that the Sony BVW – 10 supports digital cut. Actually it is a player only!

    It makes me wonder.


    I really look forward to hearing from you.


    Best regards.

    I have had the same problem with a sony P60 digi beta player,  I wasn't sure if there might have been gaps in the TC that were digitised accross and then didn't match the video when batched in or a more serious avid error.  What ever the case is it shouldn't happen.

    are you logging clips before caputre or letting the entire tape capture all at once?

    Does the tape have continuous timecode?

    Are you using timecode for the pre-roll or Control track?

    if you find one of you original 20:1 clips and load it in the source monitor and cue to a specific timecode, then cue the tape to the same timcecode do the images match?
