Have an audio clip in my PPro CC timeline. Right-clicking it shows "Edit Clip in Adobe Audition" as greyed out. (Edit video clip in After Effects works fine)
You need system specs for a software menu problem? Ok, I'll play.
- As mentioned above, Premiere Pro CC.
- Everything available through AAM has been installed.
- Windows 8
- WAV file.
- As mentioned above, no error message. The option is greyed out in the menu.
- As mentioned above, I was right-clicking the WAV file clip in the PPro CC timeline.
- Not in PPro CC, since PPro CC was just installed today. It worked perfectly fine in PPro CS6.
- No software other than background processes, and none of those interfered with the availability of this option in PPro CS6.
- TechSmith codecs from Camtasia.
- i7-990x, 24GB RAM, SSD drives, nVidia 680GTX, Soundblaster Titanium.
- Not applicable.
i appreciate your prompt response to all the questions.
It's working fine at my end with a wav file. Are you able to reproduce this with multiple wav files?
What is the source of those wav clips.
The underlying mechanism for enabling that menu option, checks if Audition is installed. The crude way Premiere checks if Audition is installed is that it checks the Windows registry for whichever application is registered to handle the file extension *.sesx or *.ses (in the case of Audition 3 and before). If it can't find that, it will disable the menu command.
So if you have a .sesx file from Audition, and you double-click on it, does it Actually launch Audition?
I had this problem and fixed it pretty quick without the need to uninstall and reinstall.
Look for the default .sesx files in your Document/Adobe/Audition/6.0/Session Templates folder (on Windows 7)
There should be a list of preset .sesx files. Right-click one and set its default application as Adobe Audition by using the "open with" option.
Once I did this I double-clicked to open the .sesx files with Audition, closed it, opened Premiere Pro CC and VUAAA-LAAA the button is available and fully functional.
Hope this helps someone!
JoynnyZ001 thank you SO MUCH for providing a way around the above discussed problem WITHOUT having to mess about installing and uninstalling. I'm running Adobe CC on a newly installed system and so there is no way I should be having to re-install software already - your fix worked
JoynnyZ001 Than you so freaking Much!!!! i have had this problem since i updated to CC and no answers as to why or how to fix it!!! Glad i finally stumbled upon this thread!!! Got it fixed and it works like a charm!! Very Happy! Thank you again!
This method definitely led to me fixing my problem. What I discovered in the Document/Adobe/ folder was TWO Adobe folders: one had Audition in it, the other had Premiere and some others. So while I had tried everything listed in this thread to no avail, when I copied the first folder over to the second it now works as expected.
there's a problem because I can't choose audition as the software the file would open with. I choose it but it never appear on the list of softwares. I don't know how to say it but it doesnt work. Does anyone know what's wrong? And I have this same graying problem, and using Premiere Pro CS 6 (and autition cs 6). Windows 7. (Audition works fine by its own.)
I wonder if I did something wrong in installation. For example Does it matter if I choose to install the 64bit versions or the other one..?
