I've got a whole heap of videos (over 1.5 Terabytes, in fact) I'm encoding currently, and some have major audio/video sync issues; that is, they start off in sync, but over the space of an hour, end up a few seconds out of sync.

I think this is because they were recorded with a different camera then what was used to feed it to the encoding machine.

This would be fine, as I'm not using the audio track that the video was taped with (I'm overlaying another audio track, which was recorded seperately as a WAV), but this audio is out of sync, too.

Any tips on how to sync video to the seperate audio track?

Capturing the tapes again isn't an option, unfortunately.

Failing that, any other forums/places I can ask?

It's been years since I've played with Final Cut, and I'm sure there was a way to do it in FCP3.
