There is a 'Try Harder' for material that is harder to sync, maybe because the audio is poor quality on the cameras, but I haven't had to use that option yet. There is also an Audio Drift feature which will correct for the slight differences between machines, especially semi pro cameras and audio recorders.
We have to give it Editors Choice, Its a no brainer. Where has this been all my life? Mike told me about it yesterday and I have already used it on a client's video, its going to save me so much time and hassle. Its amazing.
