Tempo Mapping - Set Measure Beat at now

asked Feb 18, 2021 in Editing by rolandsippel (1,390 points)

ISSUE: You currently can't change the Tempo or set a Measure Beat at now for Locked SMPTE Markers (Arrangers) to get these Markers (Arrangers) on the Up- or Downbeat (Beatmapping). This is an essential and common Workflow for scoring to picture.

In Cubase Pro it is called: "Time Warp Tool"
In Digital Performer it is called: "Find Tempo"'
In Pro Tools it is called: "Beat Marker"'
In Logic Pro X it is called: "Tempo Curve"
In Sonar/Cakewalk it is called: "Set Measure/Beat at Time Now"

S1 Solution 1: Goto Marker (Arrangers): Open a Dialog-Box: Set Measure Beat at: 3 Beat: 1.00 or drag and drop the Measure 3.4.1 Line to Measure 3 and S1 calculate the Tempo for this (Screenshot below).

Solution 2: Create a Tempo Curve Dialog with locked SMPTE-Timecode or Position (Screenshot below).

Voted. But did you know in the tempo lane, hover your mouse under the tempo line, hold CTRL (or CMD) and drag from a bar to your marker and it places the marker right on the bar, altering the tempo before it.

Okay, thanks. Yes, i use this currently as a workaround, but in a ~ 5-Minute Film Cue with dozens of Markers it's not efficient, and you have Time Jumps, because Solution 2: Create a smooth Tempo Curve Dialog is not possible...
