Have you had to film a video and record the audio separately? It can be a pain to manually sync them, so instead of struggling to do this yourself, using Merge Clips in Premiere Pro CC is a really easy way to ensure you have accurately synced audio.

There are a few ways to use Merge Clips, such as by in or out points or time code but the easiest way is by audio.

Start by selecting the clips you want to merge. Right click and select Merge Clips.

A box will open and you can rename the merged clip if you want to. Next click Audio and also Remove Audio from AV Clip (this removes the original audio recorded on the camera)

Click OK and this will then process and will create a new clip, with your audio synced!

While this works perfectly on most clips, if you have a tricky one it might not work so well. This means you might have one or two clips where you have to manually sync your audio, but that is better than having to do all of them!
