Is there a simple way to align the audio and video in Vegas 16 or do I need to transfer it to the PC in a different way?

Make sure the capture device is using the same frame rate the original video was recorded with.
If you live in an NTSC country, it should be 29.97 fps.
If you live in a PAL country, it should be 25 fps.
There are basically 2 "out of sync" audio types that can occur in a video editing program.
1. Audio is playing slightly before or after the video.
2. Audio is drifting slowly out of sync as the video plays.
Do you know what type of audio sync problem is occurring?
1. If it is #1 scenario, go to very beginning or end of video.
Click on video and press U for Un-group.
Zoom right in to to frame by frame level.
Grab hold of Audio track and slowly drag to left or right, depending on if the audio is early or late.
Play the same section and check for good sync, until you get it synced.
When it is perfect, select video and audio and press G to re-group.
2. If the audio is drifting out of sync, press U to Un-group first.
Zoom right into frame by frame level. If the audio has drifted, you may notice the video and audio end at different times and there is a "step" between the two.
Then hold CTRL key down to engage Time Stretch and drag audio until it lines up perfectly with end of video again.
Once it is in sync, select video and audio again and press G to re-group.
ℹ️ Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.
