Having seen our previous episode on “How to use Smartphone as a Voice Recorder-Filmaking” , many of our viewers had asked that using smartphone as voice recorder is a good option to get great audio but How to Sync Audio in Post ?? This is a normal question & challenge for budding filmmakers or video content creator. You have got two audio tracks. A scratch/reference audio from your camera and an audio from your recorder. And they had asked for a solution. So here are the possible & easiest solution that we have figure out.

TIP – 1
In professional film & video production normally a Clapper Board is used. Now you want to know what is a clapper board ?? A clapperboard is a device used in filmmaking and video production to assist in the synchronizing of picture and sound, and to designate and mark particular scenes and takes recorded during a production. It helps in easily detect scenes and some reference to streamline the editing workflow.
But you might have noticed that for every scene the clapper board is tap strongly to make a tapping sound. For WHY ??
This is because in professional productions, the use dedicated sound recorder to record the audio separately. As I have told you they use two audio files on set. One that is directly from the camera & the other from the sound recorder. So by making a loud tapping sound on the board it will create a peak wave in both device i.e. camera & sound recorder. Now the peak is used as the reference point to Sync the Audio In Post.
TIP – 2
If you don’t want to spend some money on a new clapper board and in tight budget, than this is also an alternative for you. I have used it many times and just believe it works amazing.
For syncing audio in post you need a clap sound as a reference point. So just make a single clap before each scene with your hands. It will also create a peak wave. Just take it and sync it. Boom !! Magic Happens.
