A Video Guide to Basic HDSLR Audio Post-Production

If you're more confident in your ability to shoot with a DSLR and audio recorder than you are in dealing with the resulting clips in post, the good folks at NextWaveDV have put together an audio post-production tutorial. Here, they demonstrate a manual audio synching approach using Premiere Pro, as well as using the great, massive time-saving plugin Pluraleyes.

voice is a mono source and was captured mono, as it should be. why make it into a stereo clip? thats dumb. you should just delete the right channel.
not only could it cause phasing problems, but your doubling the hard drive space with no benefits.
