    Skip selection

    Kost7 Community Member

      I am editing sermons and tried play with skip selection. I like it. I think I would use it all the time ( if I buy CS6)

          That's precisely why I, for one, missed it in CS5.5.  In 3.01 it was one of my most used tools!  I'm delighted it's now reappeared.

            On sermons, so would I - over most of the content...

              I believe that it now also works in Multitrack mode as well as Waveform (Edit) view.

                Hey Guys,

                 

                Just a handy tip for anyone using the Skip Selection feature in Audition CS6:

                 

                If you would like a longer or shorter pre and post-roll before and after the selection is skipped, simply do the following:

                1. Make a selection.

                2. Grab the Playhead (formally known as the CTI) and drag it forward or back in the timeline to a different position before the selection starts.

                 

                With this action you have now just set a new pre-roll time duration will be mirrored as the post-roll duration as well. Audition CS6 will now remember this choice and use it for all future "skip selection" operations.

                To change the pre and post-roll duration again, simply re-position the playhead.

                 

                And yes..it does now work in multitrack as well for skipping clips and selections..Enjoy!

                  Steve, you need to hear some from my pastor, then you would be less inclined to skip!

                    You'd perhaps be surprised at how much I can skip, and be none the worse for it!

                        Me, of course. It may amaze you, but I'm actually intelligent enough to realise that I don't need the 'benefit' of being preached at by somebody else to enjoy my life to the full....

                          As the son of an Anglican vicar, I treated sermon skipping (both in church and at a personal level) as an art form from teenager onwards.  That skill has stood me in good stead for several decades now.

                           

                          That feature is one of many I'm discovering in my CS6 trial.  I find myself becoming as enthusiastic about this release as I was unenthusiastic about CS5.5.  Early days yet, but I'm seriously impressed.

                            Ah my friend, I do not see that as the purpose of a sermon, so that is where we seem to differ.

                             

                            However, the new features in Audition CS6, are a beauty to behold, skipping and all.

                              I can only manage to be the godson of an Anglican vicar - and that wasn't by my choice at the age of less than one... fortunately he never preached at me!

                               

                              And since the only possible purpose of a sermon can be to attempt to alter (or, I suppose, reinforce) somebody else's point of view then like you, they have nothing for me at all. Never have, never will, couldn't possibly. The few I've actually listened to managed to increase my blood pressure somewhat - not healthy at all.

                                I enjoy watching video and listen to Worldwide Evangelist for Adobe  Jason Levine  teaching me how to enjoy Adobe product to the full. If they are creators than I can always benefit something from them

                                  Well there you go. Jason is a friend of mine - has been since Syntrillium days, although I don't see so much of him now, what with him jetting all around the world and not to the UK so frequently. And in the past, he has been known to cite me as one of his influences...

                                          Well, you COULD be canonised...after all, you're one of the Audition "big guns"!

                                            Hmmm.  Depends on whether he's aiming the cannon or has it aimed at him!

                                              Shouldn't play with guns (or anything larger) - bad for your ears...

                                                @ Ron:

                                                This is helpful - is there a way to set the post-roll separately?

                                                Thanks.
