About Conforming Manually
When manually conforming a sound mix to a new picture cut, a sound editor imports
the picture editor’s new audio clips into an existing multitrack project on new tracks.
Next, the sound editor has to walk through the new edits one by one, comparing the
old placement of clips to the new ones. Clips in the old mix must be adjusted so that
they line up with new cuts in the video. Clips may also need to be deleted or added
because a shot was cut or added.
