Has anyone had luck syncing multiple cameras that were jammed via Tentacle Syncs? I've tried dozens of times using the method below but there are always multiple clips that are several frames off. I end up having to check each set of clips and realigning about 30-40% of them via waveform matching. Lately, I've just gone back to using PluralEyes, which seems to do a slightly better job. It's incredibly frustrating, especially when trying to edit projects with dozens/hundreds of clips.
I've talked to multiple other editors using Premiere, Resolve, etc. and they've never had this issue. Am I doing something wrong, or is it an issue with Vegas?
As a side note: Cameras are all the same (Canon C300mkII), all camera settings are double-checked to make sure they match, and timecode is jammed once at the beginning of the day and once at lunch. I'm currently on Vegas 18 Pro, Win 10 Pro. Below is the method I've been using:
1. Create two custom bins. Name them for example CamA and CamB. Now import Camera A material to CamA bin and Camera B material to CamB bin.
2. Now go to the CamA bin and change the project media view from Thumbnails to Details (It's the button that has an arrow pointing down, right next to the magnifying glass icon). Scroll to the right until you see a column called "Tape name". You have to give every single clip a tape name there, for example CamA.
3. Now repeat the previous step with CamB bin and give the clips a tape name again, for example CamB.
4. Now go to the All Media bin > select everything (ctrl+A) > right click one of them > select Lay Out Tracks Using Media Timecode.
5. They are now all aligned on their own tracks based on their tape name.
Again, this does a decent job of lining everything up, but there are always several sets of clips that are off by 1-15 frames.
This is a mystery I've been trying to solve for months, so any help would be appreciated!
