Did you use a digital slate or other timecode device when recording?
Syncing multiple cameras and audio recorders is easy when you have timecode to reference.
DaVinci Resolve also has a built in method to sync based on audio waveforms, but using timecode can be much quicker and more accurate.
Especially when using several cameras that might not hear the same thing on the scratch audio track.
You can sync timecode that is stored both via metadata or audio track. You can even manually type it in if you have a timecode slate on screen.
