Start by syncing music to your iOS device’s iTunes/iPod library.
Choose a song.
Open MovieSlate’s “Music Video” screen.
tap the slate’s timecode display, then the keypad’s music note button.
On iPhone/iPod touch:
tap the Music Video tab at the bottom of the screen instead
(you may have to tap the More tab first).
Set Start/End points.
Drag the start/end sliders, or tap the timecode display for more precise control.
Start the Shot.
MovieSlate plays the chosen song back from the Start point,
and automatically stops the shot and the song playback when the End point is reached.
When WiFi Syncing to iPads (using the
optional Timecode Sync plugin), song info is sent to the receiving iPad. If the receiving
iPad’s music library contains the playback song, then the music will play on both devices
when the shot starts.
End the Shot.
The slate’s timecode is reset to the song’s Start point.
MovieSlate continues to use the same song Start/End points.
Start a new Scene by editing the song’s Start/End points.
Handy trick: when you drag the Start point slider past the End point slider, the old
End point becomes the new Start point.
MovieSlate plays back a portion of a song for a take. MovieSlate
automatically syncs its timecode to your song, and starts/stops music playback when
the shot starts/stops.
