Editing in sync with music has never been easier. BeatEdit detects the beats of your music and represents them as markers in the Premiere Pro timeline.
speed-up any editing process that involves music
Use the beat information to generate fully automatic edits in sync with the music. If you need more control, the beat markers can also be used as guides in your manual editing process. What's more, the automatic edits can be easily tweaked in the timeline.

Robust Beat Tracking Technology
BeatEdit relies on highly robust beat tracking technologies developed by music research groups around the globe. The beat tracker used (IBT) is developed by the Sound and Music Computing Group at the INESC University of Porto . BeatEdit also relies on the MARSYAS (Music Analysis, Retrieval and Synthesis for Audio Signals) framework developed under the direction of George Tzanetakis, Associate Professor at the University of Victoria.
Premiere Pro Timeline Example
After the beat detection occurs, we generate sequence markers in the Premiere Pro timeline for certain beats (1). We then use the Automate To Sequence function in Premiere Pro to automatically generate a cut based on those markers (2). In addition to the sequence markers, we also generate clip markers for all the beats in the audio track (3). These are useful as guides in case we want to manually modify any of the cuts later on, while still ensuring they are accurately placed where the beats are.
Can I import the Beats to After Effects?
Yes. When you generate clip markers with BeatEdit in Premiere Pro, they are stored inside the actual audio file. When you open the same audio file with After Effects (or in another Premiere Pro project) the markers are still there. Also, if you generate sequence markers and drag/drop the sequence from Premiere to AE, the sequence markers are imported along with the sequence.
What's the difference between BeatEdit to Beat Assistant for After Effects?
BeatEdit for Premiere Pro and Beat Assistant for After Effects are very different.
BeatEdit for Premiere Pro
- has a way more robust and accurate beat detection engine. In contrast to the Ae tool, it not only predicts the beats per minute, but the actual position of every single beat (as well as other rhythmically relevant points).
- has a very powerful and intuitive interface to visualize and select individual beats
Beat Assistant for After Effects
- is compatible with all After Effects versions since CS4, while BeatEdit for Premiere Pro is only compatible with CC 2014 and CC 2015
- can also generate keyframes and stagger layers
So, if you use an old version of After Effects (or if it's very important for you to generate keyframes or stagger layers), Beat Assistant for After Effects might be your best choice. But in most cases, BeatEdit for Premiere Pro will be a much better, more robust, accurate and flexible solution.
If you are a video editor into making edits in time with the music this extension is perfect for you! A serious workflow enhancement you won’t want to be without after using it a few times.
BeatEdit will amaze even the most skeptical ears. It’s beat detection is stunningly accurate. And to be able to snap edit points to the beat with markers in Premiere Pro is dream-like editing workflow.
