I apologize if this has been addressed but I cannot find it using search or G.

This comes up every once in a while and I keep hoping apple makes it easier to re-attach audio to a clip. Have they? If so how?

If there is another work around, please share. In my current situation, I was supplied clips with an audio delay of almost 5 fps. I had to manually detach the audio and modify the clip. Then I had to make a compound clip, but interestingly, it would go back out of sync unless I added 5 frames of scratch audio at the beginning and re-collapsed the compound clip. But when I try to L cut or J cut, I cannot do it with the compound clip. Am I missing something? If I could just reattach the audio and video, it would make my life so much easier. I find it hard too believe that Apple has not fixed this yet, so hopefully they have and someone will help me figure it out. :)

Anyone?

Select the clip in the Browser.
Go to the Clip menu, choose Open Clip.
Adjust audio to be in sync there.

Then whenever you use this clip it will be in sync.

Is there a way to reconnect audio that will be in sync once you've disconnected and moved?
It's probably an easy explanation but I been frustrated so far.
Thanks, in advance.

Once you've disconnected audio, it's a separate entity with no relationship to the original video any longer. But here's what you do.

Once you correct the sync inside the audio clip itself, in the Timeline, select the video clip, Shift-F highlights that range of the original in the Browser. Then do a replace edit.

With FCPX the goal is try to avoid detaching audio. If you need to slip the audio for sync or other reasons, this can be done *without* detaching it, as shown in MacBreak Studio #345 "Slipping Audio Without Detaching It":


However if you need to reattach detached audio, there are two ways:

(1) Create a compound clip. This is probably the easiest.
(2) Match frames and replace with original clip in event browser which has attached audio. However if you originally detached audio to slip it vs video, this will not preserve that. Procedure:

- Select video clip with detached audio in timeline
- SHIFT+F to find the corresponding clip range in the event browser.
- Position playhead at start of timeline clip
- Press Q key to add as connected clip above storyline
- Do CTRL+C on clip in storyline to copy attributes
- Select connected clip, do OPT+CMD+down arrow to overwrite to primary storyline
- Do SHIFT+CMD+V to paste attributes of prior video clip to new clip which has attached audio
- Repeat above from detached audio clip to attached A/V clip which copies audio attributes
- Delete or mark inactive the detached audio clip
- If needed slip the attached audio clip as shown in above MacBreak Studio.
