Manipulate Video Parameters based upon Audio Track
on Feb 5, 2014 at 3:57:10 am

Extremely far out question but I'm wondering if anyone knows of any method/plugin/idea for generating a keyframe sequence based on an Audio track.

Long shot I know, not sure if anything like this even exists, but basically what I need to do is Keyframe the size of a composite shape so that it jumps up and down in size to the beat of a song and would rather not have to do it manually for the entire track.

Any suggestions welcome!

Thanks in advance!

It's my understanding that this is something that Motion can do. I remember seeing a demo.

You are right, and it's not hard to do. It's under the pre-set behaviors, under "audio". There, you can tie the amplitude, frequency, or transients in bass, midrange, or treble, to command a secondary effect in the 'apply to" box. You add the audio file to that "well", then adjust to taste.This example is from Motion 4, which is what I still use.

AfterEffects has more sophisticated ways to handle this, but Motion may be all you need in some cases.
