Audio Conforming Issues

Tags: #adobe #audio #premiere #bug #fcpx #conforming #fcp7

Will the next version Adobe Premiere adress the issue of audio conforming?

 

Try to import 1TB of footage that has 1 hour takes.

 

Do you how long it takes when you can start cutting?

 

If this can be done in FCP7 ( 32 bit app !!!!!! )   and FCPX , then why can't Premiere?

 

In a lot of cases, when you reopen the project , it starts conforming again!

 

Hello Adobe?

 

Running CS6 on 10.8

    What exactly is the 'issue' here?

    Audio conforming only takes place ones, when opening the files for the first time.

    It should not conform every time you open the project and have not added new footage/audio.

    1 day waiting for conforming on a fast setup.

    Thats an issue!

     

    Get even faster drives.  That really is the only way your 'issue' is going to be resolved, I'm afraid.

    They're two different programs that work differently.  Premiere Pro creates 32 bit floating point 'conformed' audio files for use within the program, allowing very fine precision audio editing and very high quality effects.  If you prefer the way FCP works, use that.

    A bit off-topic, perhaps, but unfortunately, Premiere does recreate all peak files again, and again, and again and again.

    You can turn off automatic peak file generation in the preferences.

    And yes start a new thread if you have a different issue.

    You are correct that Conforming to 32-bit floating point does not make the sound quality any better, but it does make editing more precise.

    Conforming a 16 bit audio file to 32 bit floating point doesn't make the quality of the 16 bit file better

     

    It does when you add effects.

    Hi,

     

    after import of footage PP starts to build peakfiles to show the audio in the timeline.

    That is a non blocking process - so you can start to edit but havn't available the waveform display from start...

     

    If you have a fast HDD array or SSD this should go very fast - it takes just seconds fo me to generate the peakfiles for 14 feature length mono audio channels

     

    If PP "starts conforming audio" it typically rerenders and timestretch/pitches audio to a new framerate. that takes much longer and you should check if you want this or do the conversion in a dedicated DAW for better detail control...

     

    --> Is PP really doing an "audio conform" or just generating peak files?
