This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Beats (BPM) on Timeline
This is my very first post on this forum, after a suggestion from Aaron at tech support, so please be kind. :)
In Camtasia, I would
like to have snap markers (or just snapping in general) synced to beats per
minute, or more specifically, to the beginning of bars (measures).
If you who
read this have ever used a DAW (like Cubase or Sonar) you know what I mean:
instead of displaying seconds in the timeline, I'd like to show bars, and make
the audio and video clips "snappable" to the beginning of these bars (or perhaps to each beat). That would make it easy to
just drag in a finished song from my DAW and create a video that is really in
sync with the music. So: if my song is in 128 BPM, I would like to be able to
set 128 as the BPM for the timeline in Camtasia. I think this must be doable as
it's just a matter of converting numbers from seconds to bars. (All DAWs on the
market have the ability to change from seconds to bars.)
For us who are relying on music in our works and not just want to add some background music at random, this would be superb. I have previously worked with Adobe Premiere Pro, but was surprised to learn that this is not possible there, so if would be something that would set Camtasia apart from at least Premiere Pro.
