What do you guys use for Video Editing Software (those that Sync your Audio recordings to Video) and is there anything free out there to use ?

Looking for something easy and quick to use, with any auto sync feature, as I usually record full sets in 4K HD quality and using the internal Mic's on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 Camera currently

I do it kinda backwards, and export the scratch audio from the camera over to my audio editor (audacity) where I manually sync the good audio to it, & trim to the exact length.
Then I replace the scratch audio with my prepared version.


I'd like to be better at the video side, where I could perhaps add or delete frames, rather than tampering with the audio so much...
Heard Pluraleyes is good for camera sync but never got it to work myself.

I use NHC VideoPad. Its basic but I can sync good audio with the shitty video audio and do fades and multiple video tracks.

I use davinci resolve, which works pretty well but the free version is CPU intensive and slow.

I use XMedia Recode.  It's open source (completely free).  The interface is not very user friendly nor intuitive; and the instructions aren't great.  But I have the program figured out.  Here's a little video tutorial I just made with my iPhone (it's crude - but gets the point across):

It's only CPU-intensive if you don't have a good discrete video card and/or at least 16 GB RAM. I got a very good GPU (decidedly midrange) a couple years ago, and from then on, Resolve runs fast and smooth.

Using the program I mentioned earlier (XMedia Recode), I can mux a 50GB video with 1-2GB audio file in less than ten minutes.  This is using a PC I built in 2015, which at the time had some smoking hot specs.

The only catch to the fast muxing jobs is that I keep all the original files on the same drive to which I save the file.  And this is kind of a special drive (at least to me).  I don't even know what computer guys call it, but it's basically a step above an SSD.  Here is the drive (I purchased it on Amazon):

Just a quick edit to add:  it probably seems like I gloss over a lot of things (settings) in the tutorial video I made for XMedia Recode.  But that's the beauty of XMedia Recode - if you choose to "copy" video and audio tracks when doing the muxing, it will mux the files with no re-encoding.

I'm running it on an imac with 8gb RAM, so that's probably the issue.

Rich I'd give you one of my Magix Vegas licenses, all you need to do is ask, I've offered before but you've never taken me up on it.
