Do you know of any video editing software that makes synchronizing multiple sources of video easy?
Often I get a few files from each camera used to record an event. The files I get aren't continuous but they overlap. My job is to review the video and choose the best angles, quality, etc. For example. the files I may get (pardon my ASCII art skills) may resemble this pattern (each series of numbers is a separate file):
| full length | _________________________ 11111 22222 3333 4 5 (camera 1) 666 777 (camera 2) 8888888888 9999999 (camera 3)
Software I'm looking for would have a smart synchronization feature where I could tell it "The first second of the first file corresponds to somewhere between the 25th and the 30th second of the second file. I want you to figure it out exactly and adjust the position of the files on the timeline."
With the technology we have nowadays I think it should be easy, but I evaluated several programs (CyberLink PowerDirector, Corel VideoStudio, Adobe Premiere Elements, Magix Movie Edit Pro, Pinnacle Studio) and found no such functionality.
