I have 2 video's of the same movie one with a good image and in english version and a second one with bad image and in dutch version. 
it's the same movie but the sound-tracks do not correspond.

To adjust the dutch sound to the english image i think it would be more easy if there were to screens to display both images.


Is there somebody who knows a better solution?

sorry; I thought the 2 videos were the same except for their audio

exactly what are you trying to accomplish?  if wanting to put the Dutch audio on the English version, just use the Dutch audio track?

if parts of the video is missing, you'll likely have to re-narrate those sections?

even tried using the video part of the english version and the sound part of the dutch version and  then cut and paste ... not so easy.

perhaps just work with the English video and re-narrate it from scratch in Dutch?

Hello Alefever, I ran into the same sort of problem as yours, in the sense that inside Camtasia, my video existed and was OK with me, but I wanted the audio to be re-done. I wanted the audio to be re-done so that I could enhance the quality of the narration mostly concentrated on removal of background noise. I think in your case, you are considering to re-do the audio because you want the audio section of your presentation to exist in another language.  I feel the concept of indexing your narration to a video is complex because there are so many variables that one needs to keep up with while attempting to keep one's narration properly indexed to where one is located in the video. Anyway, I sent a request to this Camtasia forum for TechSmith to consider to create an add-on software program for Camtasia where this add-on would give one an ability to separate out the functions of running the video and keeping the audio properly indexed, while still giving one the opportunity to do a re-creation of their audio stream in an easy and efficient manner. I made a set of videos about this using Camtasia and sent them to my YouTube channel. Here is the URL for part 01 of this series:

Something I've not seen mentioned in this thread is to put the videos on two different tracks as Kayakman mentioned. But to view them side by side, you could scale them down and adjust their position on the canvas so they sit side by side as you want.

Recently I've been comparing the results of several programs for video transcoding.  In order to compare quality, I placed the outputs from 2 different programs on the same timeline location, and cropped them so that I could see the screens side-by-side (rather than scaling them down, which could have masked artifacts).  This worked well.  When done, removing the cropping is a simple matter.
