Using (Warp) Markers on Video track to establish down beats and tempo automation
I have a video file with it's own audio track. I've imported it into Live 8 and want to create new audio for it, so I've muted the old audio.
My first task is to find out where I want downbeats to fall - I want to record to a click track (MIDI with a keyboard using soft synths) and have a down beat land right on the important video events. According to the manual and sparse forum posts on this topic, it seems I should set the video to Warp Master and drop some markers where these important events happen.
When I do this, and then play back the video with the metronome on (no other audio playing), It seems to ignore these Warp markers. If i move the Warp markers around, I can see it affecting the original audio that came with the video clip, but that doesn't help my goal since that audio track is muted and slated for replacement.
My basic question is: How do I use Live to set up sets of full measures (assume 4/4) in between visual cues? Do I drop markers on those cues and then somehow tell Live to make measures in between those cues?
