Using markers to match frame
on Apr 3, 2012 at 4:27:35 pm

In FCP I often used markers to match frames from two different tracks using the 'snap to'. Came in very handy, especially for sync dual audio manually (yes I know about dual eyes).

Is there a trick in MC to do this?

FCP markers are called "locators" in Avid. Map the "go to next locator" or "go to previous locator" to your keyboard and use that to navigate.

Frederic, there isn't a built in "snap to" function, but here is work around. Let's say you have two locators on two video clipe (V1 and V2). Trim the V2 clip to the locator. While trimming if you hold the Command key (CTRL) your cursor will snap to the closest edit or locator.

Then move your position bar to the locator on V1, and drag V2. Again, while holding CMD, the clip will snap to the position bar. Then move the trim back out for V2.

Hope that helps.

Actually, as of the current version Locators are now called Markers in Avid too!
