Will Bitwig allow video inset tracks for scoring??

Video support is an update that will come with future versions, but at this point it's not possible to say when.

There are some VSTs out there that allow to play back video. Cheers,

Pick a start point using a standard video viewer and use an audio click count off and manually start the video at beat 5 of the click (the start of your track). Old school technique but works. With this technique it is also advisable to create a simple hit point score on paper. Before SMPTE driven video locking of tape machines to video, the assistant engineer would operate a video machine this way... Again, the paper score with basic hit points allows one to compose "off line" and in some ways lends itself to the creative process where the focus is more on the music than on the visuals. Play back of video with four clicks at count off from time to time to check it. Easy way of adapting until Bitwig get their video code written.

Go ahead, buy a nice moleskine or something. I think this answer deserves fat credit for originality and oldschoolness :)
