snapping to exact bpm

I am trying to create a music video, but when I try snapping to the beats/measures it never snaps exactly to the measure. it is very inconsistent. is there a way around this? thanks,

bartek

As long as you're adjusting audio, it's fine to turn off "quantize to frames". Whenever you start adjusting video, make sure you TURN IT BACK ON!

It makes sure your video frame starts on a frame boundry. If you don't you can get some really strange results when playing back on a TV.

Edward,

Isn't there a script for Vegas called TapTempo? I seem to remember it was to establish what the tempo was on an audio clip so that cuts and other things could be automatically sync'd.

I vaguely recall something of that nature. Doing some quick research turned up this:

If you have access to ACIDPro it comes with a Beatmapper utility. Import a long piece of music, Beatmapper wizard guides you through the process. Once done you can set the beats per minute so that a measure falls on a frame boundry. For example 96 bpm is equal to 00:00:02:15

Good luck

easy snapping =

start your clip and hit M for each beat you hear until youre sick of it.....

now V5 will lock the cursor/clip to those markers

simple hey?

highlight all those markers when ur done, and "remove all markers in region"
