I have both Premiere Pro and Premiere Elements. I'm not sure which tool is the right one to use for this so I will post this qustion in both forums.
How can I delete or remove the silence (long pauses in a conversation) from a video? I know that I can find and remove the silence from an audio track in Audition, but I cannot figure out how to apply those edits or changes to my video track so that everything stays in sync.
Please keep in mind that I wnat to do this automatically across several videos so I need this to be as automated as possible.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you're asking how to cut segments out of a video or audio clip, the answer is that you use the Split Clip tool (the scissors button on the Monitor panel) to slice on either side of the segment you want to remove -- then you select that segment on your timeline and press Delete on your keyboard.
I don't know any way to remove segments of the audio but leave the video intact and still keep them in sync. In fact, I don't know how that would be possible. You're either cutting out segments or you're not.
Although you can certainly cut and remove segments from both the audio and video simultaneously. That will keep them in sync, even if the cuts will be rather evident to the viewer.
THanks for the reply. It was late when I posted and I think I didn't explain my goal well.
Theoretically, what I want to do is to have Audition find the silence in the audio track for my video, mark all of those silent pauses (in & out, perhaps these are subcues), and then delete those ares silence from teh audio track and somehow delete those same ares (in & out, subcues?) from teh video track so that the video track stays in sync with the audio track. In other words I want to automatically detect all of the pauses in teh dialog of the video and automatically edit them out of the video and audio so that I end up with a shorter video w/ audio that has no long silent pauses.
Is that possible with any combination of the Adobe products?
Hi there, I have just released a script - there is a video on how to use with Premiere.
I think it address' this exactly, I use it for shortening tutorials automatically.
