The filming industry already encompasses high demands, like producing high-quality sound and stunning images. Nobody wants to go for less! But as simple as it may sound, syncing audio to video needs extra attention - for that highest quality output.

In most cases, you wouldn't get this from those built-in microphones; hence external shotgun microphones become the quicker option to sync audio and video. Record your audios separately from the video clips and get an incredible tool to sync them. We'll uncover two methods to help you sync your audios to video sources. The one is using Wondershare DemoCreator, and the other one is using the XLR audio recorder.

Part 1
Sync Audio and Video Sources by Using Voiceover Function

Voiceover is a common phenomenon in video production. You record your voice after connecting your Mic to the PC and hitting the 'voiceover' function, then sync with either a pre-recorded video or record a new screen during the editing process. This option is best for informational or educational videos.
