Recapturing Merged Clips

Merged clips are powerful because they allow you to group together a video media file
and multiple independent audio files within a single clip. This is especially useful for
dual system moviemaking, where video and audio come from separate sources and are
synchronized during post-production. A merged clip is a single clip in the Browser that
keeps these independent media files synced. When you recapture the media files for a
merged clip, you may have to make several capturing passes from different video and
audio sources.


Generally, it’s best if all audio files referenced by merged clips are stored on

one scratch disk (preferably in the same folder).

For more information about merged clips, see Volume II, Chapter 3, “Merging Clips
From Dual System Video and Audio.”
