I have an NLE project which will have many events from numerous media files. The video file audio is unused. The project has a song on the NLE timeline. I will sync the video events to parts of the song.
Easy peazy. Now the rub. I need to keyframe most of the events so I need to use composites. The composites will of course be mute since they do not get audio from the project timeline. I can't edit without the music. So I need to copy appropriate indexed portions of the music file to the respective composite events.
Any thoughts on the easiest workflow to accomplish this?
...what I have tried thus far.
I set the NLE timeline to absolute frames and take note of the frame number the music starts on. Then subtract the comp start position frame number from that, and then drop the music into the comp and drag the left edge the proper number of frames to the right.
I also tried creating a duplicate but muted audio track with the same music file, and then slice that event at the proper spot(s) and then use a context menu "copy" and try to paste into the composite timeline. No dice. Hitfilm does not copy events from the NLE to Comp timeline.
