Music beats per minute project settings and ruler mode
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When doing music-intensive edits, especially ones that require remixing songs to shorten them, it would be helpful to have:

  • A project setting for "beats per minute" (default to 120), beats per measure (default to 4), and maybe "note that gets one beat"*
  • A representation of that on the ruler (by switching to a "bpm" mode)
  • Vertical lines for "measures" (depends on bug #T2064)

This allows easily aligning scene cuts to the beat, or (re)aligning music portions to the beat. And apparently not many video editors have this feature: http://www.reddit.com/r/VideoEditing/comments/35884r/am_i_the_only_one_who_thinks_its_crazy_that_video/

*: that one doesn't mean much at all to me since I'm not a musician. FWIW, Vegas has this option with values such as "Whole", "Half", "Quarter", "8th", "16th", "32nd"). But Vegas started as an audio editing app before becoming a video editing app... ;)
