I shoot my drone video footage on a fixed frame rate of 25FPS for ease of editing (one frame every 0.04s). The soundtrack is giving me around 1.25 beats in the same second (one beat every 0.625s) and this makes cuts very hard to synchronise.

 

The video edit is not yet complete so I can't just set the runtime of the audio to match the video. Is there some way that I can select 'x' number of beats and set a timebase for them and the rest of the track?

 

Premiere Pro 14.3.

Thanks

I don't know of any such tool native to Premiere... perhaps a plugin might be able to do that. Beatedit or something.

Have you tried to just edit away and skip the theory and see how it looks like? 🙂

 

I get the idea behind the calculation, but if you just edit and place the edit 100% on the beat or some precents off mathematically you will notice that the human eye is too slow to even notice that the cut is x.xx % off.

 

Sometimes a video cut 100% on the beat will not look best, sometimes one frame before or after the beat marries best. It´s more about feel rather than doing it 100% mathematically correct. That´s the way music works as well, 100% correct is boring, adding some subtle variations to that is what makes everything come alive.

Brilliant, I couldn't agree more! 🙂

Quite often some movement or action will occur on the beat so you will need to cut early to see it.
