About the SMPTE Score App

Developer's Description

*** New Lower Price *** for the summer only ***
SMPTE Score HD can calculate ALL relationship combinations of; SMPTE timecode, Tempo (beats per minute) and Score length (written measures).

SMPTE Score HD has the added features of a beginning and ending timecode fields which allow for many new possibilities of solving your scoring needs.

Timecode formats supported:
- 23.976
- 24 fps
- 25 fps
- 29.97 non drop-frame
- 29.97d drop-frame
- 30 fps

SMPTE timecode is displayed in Hours : Minutes : Seconds : Frames.bits (bits go from .00 to .79)

Enter timecode in two ways:
- Enter your project timecode and have the real (wall) time automatically calculated.
- Enter the real (wall) time and have it instantly calculate your project timecode for that exact moment in time.

Timecode entered in 29.97d is always interpreted as real time and converted to the 29.97d format for that time. For example, when nine minutes is entered (when 29.97d is selected) 00:08:59;29.64 is displayed because this is the timecode when nine minutes in real time has actually passed.

The tempo range is from 5 to 290 beats per minute.

The time signatures range from one to twelve beats per bar:
1/2, 2/2, 3/2, 4/2, 5/2, 6/2, 7/2, 8/2, 9/2, 10/2, 11/2, 12/2, 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, 7/4, 8/4, 9/4, 10/4, 11/4, 12/4,
1/8, 2/8, 3/8, 4/8, 5/8, 6/8, 7/8, 8/8, 9/8, 10/8, 11/8, 12/8, 1/16, 2/16, 3/16, 4/16, 5/16, 6/16, 7/16, 8/16, 9/16, 10/16, 11/16, 12/16,
3/4, 6/4, 9/4, 12/4, 15/4, 18/4, 21/4, 24/4, 27/4, 30/4, 33/4, 36/4, 3/8, 6/8, 9/8, 12/8, 15/8, 18/8, 21/8, 24/8, 27/8, 30/8, 33/8, 36/8,

If you want to write a song 4 minutes long and at 108 beats per minute, it'll give you how many measures it needs to be (in a given time signature).

Likewise, given the number of measures, and the time you want it to take, it'll tell you how fast you need to play it. Or if you know how many measures it is and how fast you want to play it, SMPTE Score will tell you how long it will take.

You can also use it as a simple timecode converter - just select between the different timecodes.

After you find out that your score in 7/8 needs to be played at 170bpm, check out my other app "Maestro" to see how to conduct it.

About This Resource

"Pro Filmmaker Apps" is a curated database that can help you get a job done a little better or a little faster. This is a regularly updated resource of hundreds of mobile, tablet, watch, and desktop apps. We only include apps made for and used by film, television, and digital media professionals. Originally on FWDlabs.com — now also at ProFilmmakerApps.com.

FILMCAST"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."

Directors Notes"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the [Pro Filmmaker Apps]. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
