Hello this is a general question, not premiere related
I am fllowing a master for filmscoring, and they say that to do music for film you need to sync to the film , or scene, bpm
So the theoty undelying is that edito always use a music to make theyr edit, even if they are not going to use music in that scene
I can immagine this for scene where music is supposed to be there, but is it really this the workflow for scenes/sequences when no music is supposed to be?so every cut is always at music time?
For me is not even that nice to have the music in sync with cuts all the time...
wait to know from who is well aknoledged on this
there is no rule. Do your own style. Sometimes to make video more interesting for viewer, you can cut the scene of video based on music beat, but not at all.
It depends upon the video. Sometimes I cut at the beat, sometimes before or after the beat. Each method results in a different "feel".
yes and also, i think, there is not a rule that say that cut should be insomeway related to a regular time..isnt'it? i could cut freely where i like or need
Editing is like painting. You hold the brush. Do what you find pleasing.
Well, there are many answers of course.
Some even say to edit a scene for energy / rythym BEFORE adding music so the flow comes from the cutting and doesn't rely on the music.
As to cutting on every beat - here's an analogy for you: It's called
ok, i did not mean to cut at every beat, but in terms of music, lets take a four measure bar..cutting at time to me means cutting at any of the musical scansion of that bar at that bpm. So it could be at 1,2,3,4, it coul be 1,2;5 and 4..and so on..in music , at quarter time, at 1(, 1/16 and so on
Cuttig at time could mean any of these scansion
