I have two adjacent clips, when I drag the right-clip to the left it automatically creates a crossfade. I know I can turn off the crossfade in preferences. But this just makes audition play both clips where they overlap. I also know I can grab the right edge of the left clip and move it. But is there a preference or way to make the right-clip truncate the overlapping portion on the left-clip?
Thanks for the response.
The easiest way is to grab the left edge of the right clip and move that.
>> Doing so widens the right clip and creates the crossfade I mentioned.
Alternatively you could Split the right clip at the overlap point and discard the unwanted portion
>> I want to keep the entire content of the right clip; it's the left-clip that I want truncated.
In general, moving either clip over the other creates a crossfade. Instead of a crossfade I want the bottom clip to be truncated.
Oops. I accidentally clicked the "This is correct" button. Not sure how to undo it.
I'm sorry for not being clear. Yes, Ryan moving the right edge of the left clip before I move the right clip over it will do what I want. I'm just use to doing this editing process in two steps in Soundtrack Pro, rather than three steps.
In adobe audition:
1. split clip
2. move right edge of left clip to the left (to shorten left clip)
3. move right clip over
In Soundtrack Pro
1. split clip
3. move right clip over. The overlapping part of left clip is truncated.
Since I do voice overs (http://www.voices.com/people/donaldhorton ), I have to do this editing step numerous times for each audition.
From your description do I unstand that both clips are part of the same original file? If so just select the region you need to remove and use Edit/Ripple Delete to remove the duff section. However you may find it a lot quicker to do this sort of editing in the Waveform view using a copy of your original file.
There is now some online help for Audition CS5.5 which may assist you.
