Default QuickTime Movie and start times

I know that QT movies have an issue where in PT they can't be 'forced' to fall an exact midi 'tick'. This is very frustrating.

I want my midi and audio to start on exactly bar 5 and I have a TV opening where there are no black frame fade ins but the graphics start right on the 1st frame and I either have to have the QT start at 4|4|933 or 5|1|030. There are a number of hits I need to hit accurately as a composer and it drives me crazy I can't start the movie on Bar 5 exactly.

Any workaround suggestions? Thanks.

The movies can only live on frame boundaries. I don't think there is anything you can do.

What do you mean 'define the leading edge as Bar 5'?

Thanks
