sync video with midi track

Postby ollibaer » Mon Aug 05, 2019 9:11 pm

Hi there

what is the best way in Mixcraft 8.1 Pro,
to synchronise a recorded video from playing a piano exactly with associated midi file?

I play a song on my epiano about 5 minutes and record this as video with a camera and the midi file in Mixcraft.
Then I load the recorded video in Mixcraft as track and play the midi and video track together.
But it doesn't play synchronous. There is a delay approximately from one or two seconds at the end of song, although it is synchronous at the beginning.

To change the BPM of video or midi track isn't fine enough. If i only change one point of BPM, the time delay is much longer than i keep the original speed.

The delay is not much, but disturbing to see at the end of the song, that I press the key on the piano after the note is played.

I think the the video must be played one or two seconds longer. Can i set this anywhere or
what is the best way to correct this latency time?

Thank you

Ollibaer

Hi,

Hold down the Ctrl key and drag the end of the video a bit.

that works great.

At first i forgot to zoom in for fine tuning the time steps.
Then i could change the video in steps of one second.
I didn't expext this, because Mixraft is a Music studio and not made for videos.

I like your DAW, it is great for me, before i tried Cubase 8 which is not so clear and difficult to understand.

Thank you very much

Hi,

Thanks for coming back to let us know my suggestion was helpful!

Yeah, sometimes you need to zoom in and turn off (or reduce) snap.
