I've noticed that my video image gets ahead of itself.

In a recent clip, I noticed the musician I'm shooting stops and takes a bow, before the music he's playing stops.

Is this unusual?

Is there a Menu option for tweaking the soundtrack, to get it into sync with the image?

That's not what you want!

There are a few places where incorrect settings can lead to these results. From what you've posted so far it's impossible to tell where settings are wrong.

1) The audio for video standard is a 48KHz sampling rate. Not 32. Not 44. Not 44.1.

Your camera should be set to this. Any external recorders should be set to this. Any edit projects should be set to this.

Most often, the problem you're describing occurs when one or more devices have wrong settings for the sample rate. Occasionally, PC's sound card settings can contribute to the problem.

2) If you can figure out which of these settings were incorrect, you may be able to fix it easily, depending on the editing software you're using and how adaptable you are to exploring areas of the software you've never seen before. Or, maybe, you'll just say "oh well, I'll be sure to get all those settings right in future projects."

3) If your current project *must* work correctly, first you have to figure out where it went wrong. Usually, it's an external recorder set to a 44.1KHz sampling rate. Bring that recording (or recordings) into an audio editing program (Audacity is free!), and export it at a 48KHz sampling rate. Bring that recording into your video edit project and see if that fixes it.

Or, maybe, it's as simple as different project settings in your video editing program.

If this is your first rodeo, do expect it to be confusing and frustrating. These can sometimes be difficult problems to troubleshoot and fix. Do post back with more info, more questions, or, your success/failure with it.
