    export range questions

    Steve Zeeeee Community Member

      Can we combine sessions?

      I see we can export range.

      Does that create any kind of file I want?

      What if there are more ranges than one?

      My export range is greyed out.

       

      Basically I am still trying to mark many

      peices of clip for later reviewing.

      The real answer wouid be to color code selections or even just code selections.

          In Multitrack, you can't combine sessions, no.

          Export will give you a choice of formats, yes.

          You can only have one range at a time - nothing to stop you doing it more than once though.

          If the option is greyed out, then you probably haven't selected a range...

          Normally it would be a file you'd be making selections from, not a clip. A clip in Audition is, almost by definition, a selection made from a file, that you can use in Multitrack view.

           

          The best way to do what you are trying to do is to work in Waveform view, and use markers. If you open your file, you can highlight sections from it, hit F8 and create marker ranges, which you can label as you like. Once you've created marker ranges you can get to the neat bit - which is to highlight a range in the marker list, right-click on it, and then you get the option to insert just this selection into a multitrack session. At that point, in the session, it becomes a clip, and it retains its label.

            this sounds good, much appreciated.  I guess I could have figured

            that out in a few years.  F8 does nothing here, but having selected

            something, M-key does what you said F8 shoulda done, ie instanly

            creat range.   (mac)

              ugh, so all my range selections in multi track dont move over to waveform now

               

              OK i see where I can just copy paste the ranges into a new track and essentially accomplish what i want.

                Er yes - I forgot that Macs don't have useful things like Function keys...

                 

                Everything else you need to do is down to right-clicking on the mouse. The reason that I'm mentioning it again is because this is the clue to a lot of fast functionality all over Audition. What it comes down to is that with any given place you are in it, the chances are that if there's something you'd really like or need to do there, there will be an instant right-click option for it.

                 

                This is one of the reasons that for a long time, it wouldn't ever have been possible to run Audition sensibly on Macs - they didn't have the additional RH mouse button, so a lot of that functionality would have been much harder to get at.
