When I'm editing in the timeline, I am trying to sync my video with the beats in my audio.. But every time i drag the end of my video clip to my pin or marker it goes slightly past it and I can never get it to just snap/land or match up with where I have my pin set. And yes I have switched my session to 'audio time units' and I have been messing with the snap tool and cant seem to get it to work correctly.. I have never had this problem and it is really frustrating. Thanks for any advice.
I don't see a question, but I assume you're asking how to sync more precisely the audio and video.
Are you zoomed into the timeline all the way?
Yeah i know, It was hard for me to try and explain this issue.
The video clips in my session wont let me move it around freely, instead (even though i have turned 'snap' on and off and messed with the 'audio time unit' markers) it still snaps past where I want to set my video clip to go every time.
I guess my main question is that I'm just trying to move my video files freely without having it get locked or stuck to the grid, how do I do this?
Video is made up of frames. That's the smallest unit possible to move your video. If you're zoomed into the timeline all the way, you're seeing those individual frames, which is why moving the clip seems to "jump".
But if you're zoomed in all the way, being on the right frame is as close as you can get.
If you need to get very precise, you can use the playhead to designate an exact spot for the beginning or end of your clip. When you drag it, your clip will snap right to the playhead's position. I use that to get extremely precise!
That's my problem, my video clip wont snap to my playhead even if I have the 'snap' mode turned on or off... I dont know why it is doing this.. It will extend past my playhead or stop a little bit before the playhead; I can never line it up exactly with my playhead.
I appreciate the reply/help btw!
As I said, if you are zoomed all of the way into your timeline, a video frame is the smallest element of a video. You can use your playhead to precisely position your frame. You really can't get more precise than that.
Does Elements have Audio Time Units? If not then this is a Premiere Pro question.
Oh my... I didnt realize I was in Elements forum section...
Yes I'm operating out of Premiere pro.
You have to adjust the audio to the video.
Video can only be moved frame by frame as audio up to 1/48000 per second.
Can't help you here, Jarod. I'll move your topic to the correct forum.
Maybe this can I help, I had an issue that when I marked the video clip and marked the audio clip, both markers didnt snap anymore. I solved it. So maybe you put to markers really close to each other on the same track, so it didn't snap to one.
Press 'S' to turn on and off snap in timeline. That fixed my issue!
Hero! Thank you!
