          As you play the Sequence w/ the Audio, just tap the * on the numeric keypad, with NumLok ON. This will add Markers (can be tweaked, if necessary), and you can then edit the Stills to those Markers.


          Good luck,

            Calculate the time between beats.  Use that to figure out how long each image needs to be.  Accounting for frame rate, set the Still Image Default Duration to match.

              I know this is an old post, but just for reference, if anybody else has the problem now:


              We just released BeatEdit for Premiere Pro, which gives you a very powerful and flexible solution for exactly this task:

                As far as multiple messages about the same subject, that is because the average user does NOT search the forum before posting, so if six people have the same/similar question, there are very likely going to be six new questions
