Daniel, thank you. By your confirming it’s possible I came across what the real problem is, how to offset the markers.
Here’s what I’m doing. I have a full film loaded in, dare I say, logic. The TC burn in starts at 00:59:52:00 as is standard here so the first frame of picture is 01:00:00:00.
From the full film I separate projects per cue with different start points. I export midi from logic to get my markers and tempos into Dorico. For example, a logic project will start at measure 1 = 02:00:00:00. The midi file I export “sees”/“embeds” (or whatever the correct term is) the start as measure 1 = 00:00:00:00. So when I import the midi into Dorico the new flow starts at 1 = 00:00:00:00. If I change the video properties timecode offset in the new flow (from the imported midi) the markers don’t move with the offset so they disappear as they are “left behind”, so to speak.
I should add I’m using the same full QT movie in Dorico as in logic so I need to offset each cue in order for the movie to play from the correct spot in Dorico.
Of course I could spot the film in Dorico but I’m an idiot. I’m 3/4 done with this current project, we just got weeks delay so I decided to switch horses mid stream and do the remaining cues in Dorico. Like I said, I’m an idiot.
I should add, I’m able to get Dorico to sync properly to my QT and can move back and forth between logic and dorico as necessary - except for the marker thing. I could just manually re-enter the markers in Dorico and be done with it but not only am I an idiot, I’m also stubborn. If it’s the case that one can’t offset the markers, at least not yet, I’ll let it go… for now.
I watched the video on importing tempo tracks and noticed the tc line starts at 00:00:00:00. This would not work for me as the tc on the vid and the counters would not match.
So, in short, the question is - is there a way to offset the markers?
BTW - the find tempo from markers feature in dorico is fantastic. Does cubase do this? I’ve been keeping a copy of DP around just for this function - I don’t like chasing hits with tempo changes, I prefer to do it with a constant tempo and meter changes. That’s right I regularly use logic, dp for timing, pt for delivery and now dorico. Apparently I’m not just a stubborn idiot, I’m also a masochist.
one more thought - I guess I could create a flow with the entire film and import the markers there then copy and paste the section I need into a new flow… ?
