To start I suggest if you still have the tape recapture it but in mpeg2-4. avi has proven harder to work with, for me. Once captured bring it into an NLE, what ever NLE you use. Split the audio from the video track. Now some NLE’s are really good about resyncing, but I use VSX4 so I will use it as a reference. Once the audio is on another track, zoom your track so you can see frame by frame, you want the video and audio on the NLE. Now figure out if the audio is off + or -, if it is – you will need to drop in how even many frames needed a dead space in front of the audio. But use headphones to listen to resync. Once resynced, just rerender the work as a file, again stay with mpeg, avi may be compressing it too much. Also if a video is out of sync, direct render into another format will not correct it.
