How can I start my audio in Arena simultaneously with a video clip so they are in sync?

Post by FreeTwitchBeats »

So I don't need to the BPM to follow my clips I just need the audio I've imported into a layer to play at the exact same time as a video clip. How can this be done?

1st Way:
You can drop the audio onto the video and combine them both to one clip ;)
Only recommended when they are exactly the same length....


2nd Way:
Drop them into the same collom and then start via the collom trigger.

3rd way:
Use external trigger (osc / midi / artnet etc) and map both clips to the same trigger

Don't forget to encode the audio WITHOUT any sort of compression.
My cent on that.

Also, let me be clear on exactly what it is I'm trying to do.

I essentially have a 30 minute audio track that I am trying to sync video clips to...that's it. The backing track is all prearranged via an uncompressed audio format and I'll be playing instruments live behind this. I just need the initial video clip to start at the same time with the audio and I'll manually sync the videos to the audio.
