Hey there everyone,
I have been a long time ProTools user, and now I'm getting into the realm of writing music for film and video. ProTools is a little lacking in this area, so I am wondering what software is most commonly used to write midi music and sync it to video.
I have been using Reaper, and while it seems to do pretty well with the midi aspect, the video playback is not working well for me. The few videos I have tried to playback within Reaper have all made the program playback very choppy, and makes it unusable. Are any of you using Reaper for video work?
I know that some people are using Digital Performer. I have never used this program before. Does it allow you to play back a video within the program?
For those of you composing to video, do you have your audio program play back the video, or do you have a separate program play back the video, and if you do that, how do you sync it up?
I am at the point where I'm not too concerned with my ability to get the sounds I want, but I don't know the best way to get everything to actually work when it comes to watching the video and writing the music along with it.
I would appreciate any advice I can get. Thanks!
