This video tutorial includes some simple tips for getting smoother transitions between VJ clips and better synchronization between external audio and your VJ loops. For better BPM sync results, your video loops should include some action each second or half-second.
Is it that obvious?
These useful tools are not very visible, and for this reason, many Resolume users don't usually take advantage of them. Once you discover where these handy tools are, your VJ life will be a lot easier. These options are so obvious that you won't be learning anything out of the ordinary. These are the kind of things that require a small look at the Resolume user manual, so save time by watching the video tutorial below.
BPM Sync and Beatloopr
One of the first questions when starting using the Resolume VJ Software is how to sync visuals with audio. When dealing with small projects, the fastest way to sync VJ loops with audio is by using the 'TAP - RESYNC - METRONOME' combination. You can see this method in action with some Christmas Video Loops in the video tutorial. However, it is not a perfect solution. You will need to keep an eye on the BPM clock to see if everything still matches after a while.
If you like electronic music, then you will love Beatloopr. This tab is available only if you select 'BPM Sync' in the 'Transport' tab. It is the VJ equivalent of the loop buttons in a DJ console. You can loop your VJ footage four beats (1 bar in EDM), two beats, one beat, half beat, and so on. It is perfect to sync VJ loops with snare risers and other drum arrangements.
