How to move audio sample to its original timecode embedded

Post by rockman413 » Tue Apr 02, 2024 11:21 pm

Hi there,
So I import audio sample, and a video(showing as audio I suppose), is there a way to move them to its original timecode embedded?

Thanks!

It has to be done manually.

thank you, I guess it's actually two slightly different question (as my other post has been removed):

1. How to move audio sample/ video to a certain timecode I wanted;
2. How to move to the original timecode embedded ?

So when you replied manually, I suppose it's the same for both question?
Also I wonder how to do this manually? Drag to a timecode I wanted? It's impossible if I want to drag it to a certain frame as I think the ruler does not show to that level. Meanwhile, for the embedded tc how can I know what's the embedded tc so i can drag it to there? (would be ... to use another DAW to see it's embedded tc...)

Yeah those things need to be done manually.
- You can change Arrangement view's bottom ruler to timecode. Just right-click it and you'll see the options.
- to navigate to specific timecode points the only options are to refer to the bottom ruler, the embedded timecode on the video, or use a M4L device (there's a few ones on maxforlive.com).
