hi, check out a previous thread called 'VIDEO sync with Live'. i personally use pro tools for syncing sound and video and haven't tried any of these recommended programs by other users, but they might help

cheers, mike

ReVision sounds like the one if you're Mac-based. If you're not, seems you're shit out of luck. :(

Here's the thread:

I know! i'm dying for video sync too!! I got Live to sync with Adobe Audition 1.5 via ReWire, but only as slave so no VSTs. Plus the sync wasn't that great... not a satisfactory solution at all!! grrr... hopefully people are working on this somewhere right now! A ReWire-slave video application! Please!

the jitter solution above actually looks good however......the $ issue and the learning curve of cycling 74 are big hurdles
cheers
ps if only cubase SX had midi clock in for syns...........but unfortunately not...

Oh well, add your name to the wall, seems a few of us are after this :) What would be neat to go with video would be warp markers for the arrange view, to enable super-easy adjustment of tempo to hit those cues right on time:
