Automatic beat detection

Premiere pro needs a feature to automatically place markers on beats of audio tracks such as 1bar, 1/2 beat, 1/4 beat etc. Elements had this yet now it's gone and is an industry standard technique.

Been searching for this too. I'm blown away that in 2024 Adobe doesn't have the capability or technological knowledge to do this. Even Capcut has this feature. It's mindblowing.

The "pro" apps have tended to assume that one either controls such things manually or buys plugins for specialized things like this. Like BeatEdit from aescripts.com.

 

As someone who works for/with/teachers pro colorists, with spendy rigs and monitors, working in Resolve or Baselight ... all the folks I work with have the full Boris and probably a couple other "suites" of things available. 

 

Editors seem to think paying a one-timw $25 fee for a plugin outrageous. I find this all rather humorous.

 

And btw ... I've got the full Red Giant Universe, personally ...

Auto beats detection is a basic fundamental audio function that should be native. It shouldn't be dependant on a 3rd party add-on - regardless of costs.

It's a basic function to you, but one that most editors will never use.  I would have no issue with adding as an effect, understand, I'm all for adding new stuff.  I'm explaining why it's not already there.

 

I think a lot of color tools should "already be there" in Premiere, that sadly, most editors would never use. But at least, I'm realistic about the percentage of people who would actually use the stuff I'd love to have. Not ... very many, truthfully.

I'm with Neil. I don't think it's a fundamental issue. I have ears that tell me where the beats are.

I would say 80% of trending social media reels and videos are made where scene transitions are dependant on the audio beat. We must not be talking about the same thing as it's extremely perplexing that anyone is even debating this.

You might be debating something. I'm not.

 

It would be handy for many to have, and I upvoted the suggestion years ago.

 

But like a ton of color changes I'd love, bluntly, nowhere near that many of the millions of daily users would use it as much as they would something else.

 

Be realistic. In most uses, if there is music, the music is cut to the clip, not the other way around. And sadly, not nearly enough people would use the color tools I would use daily.

 

I've talked over that with the devs in person at NAB. They're understanding and polite, but my color requests aren't gonna be high enough to be implemented.

 

This is probably pretty similar. We all have to have the ability to get out of our own silo and see what others actually do. Especially as no two people ever edit alike. It's wondrously, amazingly variable user to user.

 

And at just under $100, if you're getting paid to edit that should be less than a day's work, will save you time as you do that a lot. Cost of doing professional business.

 

A lot cheaper than the Red Giant Universe ... all of which one could argue should also be in Premiere.

 

Many things are available in Resolve, yet my colorist buds also pay a ton to buy higher grade or just different results. Effects "identical" to ones already in Resolve.

 

Professional Life.
