About Conforming Manually

When manually conforming a sound mix to a new picture cut, a sound editor imports the picture editor’s new audio clips into an existing multitrack project on new tracks. Next, the sound editor has to walk through the new edits one by one, comparing the old placement of clips to the new ones. Clips in the old mix must be adjusted so that they line up with new cuts in the video. Clips may also need to be deleted or added because a shot was cut or added.
