Re: Stretching audio to sync with video

you will probably have to make cuts in the video track and adjust it at numerous points to get everything to sync up proper
Not true. I've stretched audio a decent bit with Vegas and never had problems. It's better do stretch the audio.

Here are a couple options to check in Vegas. Go to Options > "Quantize To Frames". Make sure that is unchecked. If it is checked then when you stretch it has to be one full frame at a time. With it unchecked you can stretch in the smallest increment you want.

When you start your project go to File > Properties and under the Audio tab there is "Resample and stretch quality". Choose Best for that.

With these settings I have never had any problems syncing separate audio sources and stretching them as much as needed. Usually the drift between devices is not more than a few seconds so it's not a huge issue.
