BeatEdit will change the way you animate to music in After Effects. It auto detect beats in a music track and allows you to do anything with them: Create beat markers, animate sliders, animate layers, repeat keyframes and much more.
In this tutorial i show you how to time-remap a video in sync with the music.
The key idea is to make the video move forward at the beats and stop in-between them.
For the beat detection we use our Premiere Pro extension BeatEdit which detects the
beats automatically and generates markers for them. In After Effects we will use the
“Increment at Marker 1D” iExpression to change the video timing at each of those markers.
In this tutorial you learn how you can edit music in Premiere Pro very easily to fit to your video. Typically each song consists of different sections that are more or less intense or have other variations and I show you how to separate those sections accurately such that you can change their order, remove or duplicate sections and so on such that at each point in time the mood of the music fits to your video perfectly.
If you create a transition between two songs with different tempi, the result usually does not sound pleasing. In this one minute tutorial for Premiere Pro you learn how to adjust the tempo of the songs such that their beats match perfectly.
In this tutorial we cover an interesting little fact that also experienced video editors are often not aware of:
The beats of a song are not always located exactly at peaks visible in the waveform. Sometimes they are located slightly before or after them.
