Hi Randy, Sorry to keep coming at your with these random questions from nowhere, but I recall that a long time ago (2006 or before!) you posted about video start times and and adjusting them in SONAR when scoring to video. I have searched the forums and on Google and can't seem to find that (to me) very valuable post. I think that I think I know what I'm doing in SONAR with video but I recall that posting as being especially helpful. If you know how to find it, I'd love to read it! Thanks, Reber "Chip" Clark
In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.
Ha! I know you must be pretty stumped, Chip, when you come back with a flag like That waving!
Yes, I remember that post - I couldn't find it either. It probably was a reply on an existing thread, buried somewhere.
I don't know what all I said on that old thread, but here's the skinny as found in the SONAR Help file under "Importing and playing back videos."
Open the Video View and right click over the screen. You'll see places to change the defaults, which are of course to have the video start at the beginning of the Sonar project:
"Start time: The time in your SONAR project at which you want the video file to start playing.
Trim-in Time: The time in the video file at which you want video playback to start.
SONAR synchronizes the video to the project according to the specified Start and Trim times."
...I remember your reply as being full of good info. I will continue to search the boards...
Yeah, I vaguely remember that I had more details and tips. I think I was in the middle of doing a project, so had current experiences to write about. But what I posted above is really about all there is to it - inching the video into a different position if needed, and/or having it start at some point other than its beginning. I haven't needed to do any offsetting for a long time, so anything else about it is kind of sketchy now!
