Logic 9 Adjusting barlines to scene markers in video project

    Hi, folks --

    I'm new and have searched the Forums for an answer to my question but haven't had any luck, so here I go:

    I'm running Logic Pro 9.1.8 on an iMac with 4Gb of memory, running Mac OS10.6.8. I'm doing a video project and just starting out with video scoring. I know there's a way to adjust barlines to particular hit points/scene markers in Logic Pro but haven't been able to find it. What I want to do is to adjust the tempo of a region of music so that I get a downbeat on a particular hit point.

    Any help from more experienced video composers or editors?

    Here is the online user manual Beat Mapping chapter. Have a look at that (there is a sub chapter "Beat Mapping to Scene Markers" as well).

    You may find scene markers aren't the most elegant way to do this. They can miss a scene change and also give you way to many markers. I'd define the area you want analyzed by creating a marque selection.

    Also beware that if you delete the movie from the project, it can take the scene markers with it!

    I generally just navigate to the frame and use the key command for create marker without rounding. Be sure to SMPTE lock all you markers as you create them.
