audio: advance & play one click? not 2, not FF

Jul 27, 2013 3:40 PM

When I am listening to audio which I want to edit, i want to play a little, advance some, play some etc.

But so far when I click ahead I have to hit the space bar everytime to reactivate the play head.

I just want it to continue playing even when I click ahead to other areas.  Can this be done?

Not interested in fast forward here.

Thanks anyone.

    You cant play by mouse clicking at a location.  That woud be a nightmare.

     

    Space bar or JKL in combination with a click.

     

    How hard is it to push a Space Bar?   (I do apologise if you have a physical disability and arer seriously looking for a solution)

    Seriously  man?

     

    One hand on the mouse and one finger on the spacebar!

     

    Are you trying to save clicks, time or energy?   (I dont see how... any-which way).

     

    Not possible to do anything about mis clicking cos thats entirely down to you.

    Definitely.  When you manually move the CTI, you need to manually restart playback.  That is the way things should be.

    Steve,

     

    There is actually pretty strong support in the pro audio realm for your suggestion. I believe most DAWs have some feature to keep playing even as the playhead is moved to various locations on the timeline. I know Audition does, and it is a very useful tool when reviewing audio tracks. If you decide to go ahead and submit a feature request for this, the place to do so is at https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform

     

    The Premiere Pro team has always assured us that site is the best place to suggest new features, not here on the U2U forum, and that thorough consideration will be given to all submissions.

    Hopefully this one will get ignored for Premiere.  Its too dumb and would not be popular!

    Click and double click is already used in Premiere.

     

    How do you want Adobe to implement this just because you wont do something as simple as...

     

    One hand on the mouse and one finger on the spacebar.

     

    I dont get what you are saving or where? 

    How exactly do you save on "clicks" considering you have to jump ahead and click anyway?

     

    What do you do when you get to the end of the scroll page?

     

    Audition is an audio only application so it might make sense there but even then..they dont do what you want.    Its Click and Spacebar. as far as I know.

    I really care because I am a video editor (and I also go thru plenty of audio.)

    Next...I want to make sure that Adobe doesnt consider a dopey idea just for you.

     

    What you are suggesting would impinge and change the workflow of video editors whose primary goal is to edit VIDEO.

     

    In my 11 plus years on this forum ..you are the only one who has ever suggested changing the Click and Spacebar... yet you have no idea or suggestion  how that could be implemented so that it did not affect video editors. 

     

    I dont think you have even thought this thru.

     

    Let say Adobe gave you a modifier key so the click was enabled to play on.  Welll guess what..you will need to use 2 hands/fingers to do so.

     

     

    What does youtube and Soundcloud have to do with Video editing?

    Steve --

     

    Is this what you are looking for? You might want to go to the Audition forum http://forums.adobe.com/community/audition?view=overview and ask them there how it works for them and if they like it.

     

    You might have to click on the image.

    Now you have thought about it.

     

    As I said..you want a modifier key (or a modifier button).  Make a feature request.

     

    No problem with that my self... but not sure how it "saves you 100 clicks".

     

    At the risk of repeating myself...one  can roll through any vid or audio (source or timeline) with a click and a finger on a spacebar effortlessly.

    Drinking while editing is a serious offence, sir.  It can result in the untimely death of a project.  (Spring Breakers, just about any SyFy original movie, reality television, etc.)
