Ruler Bar

The ruler bar runs along the top of the edit canvas. A number of timelines can be shown via View>Rulers, or by right clicking in the blank area just to the left of the marker labels.

Available Rulers include:

  • Min:Sec : Minutes and Seconds elapsed since time “0”
  • Timecode : Video timecode in SMPTE formats. Choose the display format in Session->Properties->Timecode.
  • Samples : raw digital samples
  • Bars & Beats : musical time

Marker bars in the ruler area

Marks can be set in the following ruler areas:

  • Meter ( a meter marker initiates a new musical timebase )
  • Tempo ( a tempo marker initiates a new musical tempo )
  • Range Markers ( Ranges can be exported simultaneously in the Export dialog )
  • Loop/Punch Ranges
  • Markers ( Location markers are typically used to quickly locate to a new time in the project, such as “verse 1” ).
  • CD Markers ( CD markers are used in the Export dialog to define CD track markers )

To set a marker in any of the rulers, simply right click to pull a dialog box.
