Learn how to time-remap a video in sync with the music. The key idea is to make the video move forward at the beats and stop in-between them. For the beat detection we use our Premiere Pro extension BeatEdit which detects the beats automatically and generates markers for them. In After Effects we will use the “Increment at Marker 1D” iExpression to change the video timing at each of those markers.
