So I'm trying to edit this funny video from 2 years ago... And when I render the video the video is a lot faster than normal but the audio is normal. Also everything seems fine in preview.. I have audio sync, audio shredding and frame dropping on and the frame rate is correct. So any ideas what might cause this?

EDIT: Ok it seems to have something to do with the beginning of the video because if I render a random part of the video that doesn't include the beginning it will be fine but if I start the rendering from the beginning it will all be messed up... Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks in advance, ~Jere

  • $\begingroup$ That kind of thing can happen if the video you're editing was shot with one frame rate (say 30 fps) but you're rendering at a different setting (like 24 fps.) $\endgroup$ Jun 5, 2016 at 18:21
  • $\begingroup$ @PatrickMarchand Yeah that's what I ment by "frame rate is correct".. So the video is shot in 50 fps and I'm rendering at 50 fps $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Can you include your .blend, video, and audio? $\endgroup$

You are not in playing back at real speed. Go in the Timeline Window > Playback menu, and enable Frame Dropping option. It will respect the real speed but at the price of some frame droppings.
