Record sync dialogue and specs for syncing with picture in offline edit. For scenes with sync elements, dialogue, specific sound effects, etc., it is important to record a hard audio hit at the head of each take. This is usually a slate board. If a smart slate is used, the timecode can be fed to both the audio recorder and the camera, which allows for easier syncing once in offline. If no slate is available, an on-camera hand clap can be used to sync the take. The documentation for picture and audio has to match as well. This eliminates any confusion when syncing in the edit suite.
