[EDIT] The scripts are now Add-ons.
As you might know Audacity has the ability to do some very nice audio analyzing like beat finding etcetera and displays this data as Labels. These Labels can be exported to a simple .txt file. To make use of this within Blender I wrote a little Add-on which converts these Labels into Timeline Markers (not the actual Label names but just the start times for each Label).
[EDIT] I’ve also included an Add-on which does the reverse and saves Blender’s Timeline Markers to an Audacity Labels (.txt) file.
I’m not a programmer so forgive me if my code is being very sloppy, but it seems to work fine for me so I just wanted to share it, maybe it’s useful for someone out there as well…
(btw. I forgot if Audacity comes standard packed with those awesome analyzing tools, if not I think to remember I got those extra plugins with Sonicvisualiser, either way the Label system is a standard feature of Audacity)
The Add-ons are in the AudacityLabelsAddons.zip attachment. An example labels.txt file generated by Audacity is also available in the attachments.
