    I have a long audio book file (mp3) of approx 7 hours that I wish to divide into smaller files that correspond to the book chapters.  I have placed markers at the relevent points and changed all to range markers. However the start and end points shown are only 1 second in duration though the actual start/end points are between 30 70 min duration.

    How do I export the timings as shown by the markers surely I don't have to set each and every out point manually?   Do I also have to change each marker to range individually as well?

    I'm obviously doing something wrong but cannot find out what yet.

    It sounds like instead of merging the markers you just turned each one into a range on its own.

     

    Try this:

    1. Add your single markers at all the relevant points in the file (include the very start and end of the file).

    2. Open the Markers Panel and seelct all markers.

    3. Choose to "Merge Selected Markers" (there is a button for this at the top of the Markers panel, or you can right click the selected markers).

     

    This will merge all markers as you are expecting.

    Now you can choose to export the audio within the marker rnages to individual files.

     

    I hope that helps.

    You are a genius, and you certainly did help. 

    I would never have thought about merging markers, I thought that would take everything back to just large chunk/file.

    I did read all the help files I could find but never found the info that you made so clear.

     

    Many thanks

     

    Kind Regards

    I have long WAV files (voice scripts for curriculum) that have hundreds of markers, done and saved in Adobe Soundbooth CS4. In AUDITION, these markers are not automatically loaded with the wav file.

     

    So I exported them (File>Export>Markers) in Soundbooth to a "Flash Cue Exchange File" XML.

     

    Trying to IMPORT in Adobe Audition CS6, I get this error:

         Error: The file is either corrupt or using an unsupported format

     

    Is there another way??? Please help.

    That was awesome. You just saved me an hour I was going to spend converting every marker to a range marker and dragging it across.

    Is there anyway to use that same shortcut and specify that each range is the same length? For example, I want to take a bunch of segments from a .wav file and export exactly 36 frames for each segment.


    Does that make sense?

    There does not appear to be a batch rename for Markers.  The numbering is in the order they were added so it would be useful to rename them in sequence.

    There is a tool for manipulating marker data, and it gives you a staggering amount of flexibility with it, too:

     

    CueListTool

    I can't find a way to export the markers data as CSV or XML format. Even Adobe Media Encoder has that feature.

    I think you'll find that CueListTool gives you options for CSV - you can pretty much define the format details yourself.

    Thank you Steve, it seems CueListTool website is down, I'll try later.
