Locking clips to SMPTE time

Post by diegux » Thu Jun 04, 2020 1:41 am

Can we please get the ability to lock clips to SMPTE in arrangement view? It is basic bread and butter for scoring to video. There is no way to do any professional scoring without it. Ableton , just by including the ability to change the tempo but lock the clip to an absolute timecode, could become a great tool for film and game composers.
It's 2020. It's a very expensive DAW. It is a joy to use, the one that makes me more creative. Just please make the few really needed adjustments people have been asking for years.

Thanks

I keep having to jump back to logic for this, or freeze tracks and then manually move everything. Getting very very annoying. Was hoping this would be included in 11, pretty essential for people working to image. As diegux says, just the ability to lock position and then change tempo.

Wow this would be incredibly powerful.

This is the one reason I have to go back to logic for film and tv projects, when I would much rather stay in the flow in the creative wonderland of Ableton Live.
