Automate slide show picture duration to music?
on Mar 15, 2017 at 3:51:03 pm

Been a while since I've done a slide show. I could have sworn that there was an option to automatically match the duration of pictures on the timeline to the length of the song. Maybe that was in Encore? Can anyone tell me if there's a way to do this in any program in Adobe CC?
Thank you!

Automate to sequence in the project panel will give you some options in terms of

how long each slide should be...

overlaps

and transitions

so you can sort of get it to the approx length of a music bed...

from there...

you can nest the sequence vid track....

then use the Rate Stretch Tool to finesse the length overall to match the bed....

The previous assumes an equally paced edit of the slides....


there is a plug-in called beat edit that will do some automation based on the rhythm of the bed...

Thank you for the replies. Rate Stretch Tool is a good idea.

Guess I dreamed about the match picture length to audio being built in.

Thanks again!

I bet SOMEBODY'S going to dwell on certain lies more than others. Somebody like a client. It's Murphy's Law.
Which kind of shoots the automation idea in the butt.

[Alex Udell] " What are the odds?"

Pretty darned good, in my experience. And it's always something that's tough to alter without a lot of work.

"Oh, but it's just one change! How tough can it be?"

Which is why I like approval mileposts. I hate doing things over.

...which in the end just makes production more costly. Hey, if they don't mind, why should we, I guess....

...unless it has a tight deadline. Then it's murder on the production folks.

Dave,

You're obviously familiar with Murphy's Law, but do you know what Cole's Law is?

Love the jocularity . . . this thread is flying over my head . . . how are y'all constructing your slide shows?
A friend sent me a slide show made in Powerpoint (by MS). I could not figure out how to get it into Premiere.
Cheers,
Robert

You really wouldn't take a power point into PPro...

more than likely you'd take a folder full of images into Ppro...

then assemble them in order in a sequence.


you can add a music track...

and time the changes in visuals to the music...or they can be fixed durations...
