I've been told by a local friend that it's not worth the trouble. Video
is approx 30 FPS, and audio is 48k S/s, so alignment 'by ear' is 'good
enough'. That may be what they're planning to do anyway...
Reading the Ardour manual, and poking thru the menus, I found an option
to send MTC, but not one to receive MTC. I don't want to be responsible
for providing a clock to the video recorder(s). Ardour's timeline always
starts at 0:00, and I haven't found any option to use wall time instead.
If they were to try using MMC to sync the audio during post, it would
depend on both the DAW and the video editor using the same clock.
