Tools : TimeLine > Guides > Import-Export

Hello there,

I saw something similar in the forum, but where??? and not followed. So, i try to follow.

What do you think about an import tool to catch the Audacity > Analyze > Beat Finder... (or others),
http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/Analyze_Menu
who "attempts to place labels at beats which are much louder than the surrounding audio".

Labels that can be imported/exported in audacity, the code who do that seems to be here :
http://code.google.com/p/audacity/source/search?q=labeltrack.cpp&origq=l...

near line 1988 /// Import labels, handling files with or without end-times.
void LabelTrack::Import(wxTextFile & in)....

-#- this feature could be usefull for people who work with subtitle files.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Subtitle_file_formats
and so, could be logical if guides can be imported to export them back.

-#- this can also respond to question like this :
http://kdenlive.org/forum/bpm-sticky-points-audio-track
cause guides are sticky, and numerous beat strict file can be created with audacity easily and then used.

-#- following my brainstorm,
in the import guides box, what about color selector, cause of people who want now beat information in green and others guides in other colors....

;-)

Sounds like a nice feature!

Also I think it would be a good idea to be able to place repeating guides at a certain BPM, synced with a music track. This would allow us to make music videos (or similar clips) where you could switch to a new picture every beat.

It could work as this: Place a start guide at a beat, select how long (in time, or in number of beats) the guides should span, and then kdenlive code would do the rest to place the guides. What do you think?
