I was wondering if anyone of you has come across this (I'm sure you have) and can explain why it does this. And also, is it ok that I do this.
I use Logic 9 to score music to film. My project's tempo is set at 120bpm. I then import the video into Logic and I can compose music.
My issue is with me changing the tempo by speeding it up. Let's say up to 180bpm. The end of the video goes grey and logic stops playing right at that point.
What I have found out that I can do is to start my tempo at say 220bpm before I import the video. Then, I can slow down the tempo and the video does mess up. As long as I make the tempo slower (not going faster than the original tempo of the project) it works fine.
I this safe to do? Is there a better way of doing it?
if you can formulate your question more precisely, I can help you.
The tempo in Logic has no effect on the movie.
The relationship of the music to the movie will change (if you don't have it smpte locked) but the movie always plays at the same speed.
If Logic stops playing at an earlier time position when increasing Logic's tempo, then it sounds as if you have not moved the "song end position" (the little white box at the top of the time line) to the BAR position where the movie now ends. (Faster tempos need more bars!)
The "Logic pro help" site has lots of threads from knowledgeable members who can help you.
You are the man! I knew it was something a small as that. The end position of the song was being passed up when I increased the tempo. I set my new template with an end position way out there. Now all is well again.
