    Batch splice narration to match video clips?

    David Accola

      I have a project with 180 something video clips to sort through, and my choice way of organizing everything is watching everything straight through and recording an unbroken narration of what I'll do with each clip, as a big-picture guide for myself to listen to as I go back and work with the individual clips. Issue being that if I delete a clip my narration is off until I make tedious splices to match the narration up to the clips.

       

      Question: is there a way to batch splice my single long narration into clips that correlate with the start and end points of the individual parallel video clips?

       

      Thanks.

          I've plopped all video clips into the timeline, back to back in chronological order, if that wasn't understood.

            In answer to your question

            is there a way to batch splice my single long narration into clips that correlate with the start and end points of the individual parallel video clips?

            my answer would be no.

             

            I see no way to apply the Run AutoAnalyzer command to grouped video and narration in the hope of getting split clips by content.

             

            You could export your video with narration in place to a file and import that file into Premiere Elements where you could determine if you could get

            the Run AutoAnalzyer command to split clips by content. Right now I think that idea borders on wishful thinking.

             

            There are video splitters that can be found online. I have never used any.

             

            Please let me know if I have misinterpreted what you seek on a batch basis. If you take the batch out of the equation, then I could suggestion

            some techniques for matching segments of the narration with various portions of the video.

             

            We will be watching for further developments.

             

            Thank you.
