How is it done in professional music videos or documentaries of concerts?
Usually by "eye and ear".
Are you trying to automate this?
Have you looked at the audio waveform in Premiere and placed markers on the beats?
You can also mark the beats on the fly by tapping the "asterisk" key on the Num Pad as you playback.
After Effects has a beat "locating" feature that you could use to create a visual reference clip. ( Complicated )
Though I regret not being able to have numbered measures, as in Cubase, I think this could work for me. I tried the tutorial method and see how that works.
I couldn't get started on the second method as it doesn't mention the first step of where the animation menu is.
I am wondering though why, when I drag the AVI file from the source to the timeline, video goes on Video track 1 but audio goes on audio track 4, and I can't move it up to audio track 1.
Unfortunately, I see I have another problem. In the source window with the video file displayed, I can't see the markers because they are so close. If I use ~ to get a bigger window I can see them but they are way too close together to be able to move. Those on the timeline can't be moved?
Thanks. That is just what I needed to separate the markers and be able to move them.
