I'm working on a new project that's much more abstract than what I usually work on. I'd like to approach the sound design more as a musical composition than a simple description of what I'm seeing on the screen. This means it's all going to be about motion and flow.
What I'd like to do is make up a spreadsheet of hit points (important visual moments) and end up with a linear graph of the whole timeline. If I can then manipulate the points vertically to show intensity/loudness that'd be great too.
I've tried doing it in OpenOffice and Excel, and it's really not coming out the way I'd hoped it would. Does anybody know of anything that works (and is as close to free as possible)?
