Final Cut Pro: Plays fine in sequence, but audio out of sync on export

I lost a few hours to this issue today, so I’m dedicating a blog entry to a simple checkbox to help others:

If your Final Cut Pro sequence plays fine from the project file, but the audio and video get out of sync or there is a rendering glitch when you export a QuickTime movie, try selecting “Recompress all frames” when you export. You can also play around with clearing render files, etc., but this one box seems to do the trick.

  1. I cannot thank you enough for posting this tip. I ran across this problem and it was killing me! Thank you!

  2. Thanks so much for posting this. I’ve never had this problem before today and of course had a big editing deadline. It works great now and don’t have the problem anymore with the audio being out of sync after I render a movie file. Big Thanks!

  3. Oh God!!!! You helped me get promoted. I had to submit this video as part of my promotion presentation. I had very less time and I was having this audio video sync problem. But lucky me
    I saw your blog and my problem solved.

    Thanks a lot man.
