Hey Team Bitwig!

I'm a Sound Designer, and the flexibility of Bitwig is really useful for me but as I don't generally work to tempo I find I need to create a lot of markers to compare with video of animations to work to. This is all fine, but as far as I can tell, there's no way to snap a clip directly to a marker unless you're zoomed in enough that it happens to coincide with a gridline.

If there is a way, please do let me know, but if not consider this a hopefully quite simple feature request from a massive fangelist for you guys with other game audio guys! :)



I don't think it's possible, but as a workaround, instead of using cue markers, maybe try using an empty instrument track that you just insert blank clips upon as cue markers. Then when clicking a clip and hitting spacebar, the sequencer will start playing from the clip's start point, and because it's considered an event, the snap to events feature will let you snap clips on other tracks to precisely the blank "cue" clip's start.

That's as good an idea as any, I guess!

Thanks for the logical thinking :)
