I'm using PP CS4 and Audition 3.0 -- both installed correctly, both activated.
I have a 5.1 sound mix on a timeline that I need to do a little editing to, I right click on the sound file and sure enough the "Edit in Audition" option is available and I click on the option. Adobe Audition 3.0 opens as expected and it opens with 6 distinct sound files loaded in the files panel (Center, Left Front, Right Front, Left Surround, Right Surround, and LFE). SO FAR SO GOOD!!!
Then, using Audition, I make the appropriate sound edits to the individual files and have everything just like I want. This is where I'm confused -- according to what I gather from the PP CS4 help, all I need to do is "Save" the files in Audition and the changes will automatically show up in PP timeline. But for me, and maybe I'm doing something wrong, it's not working. I save the files in Audition, but when I go back to PP (still open, never closed) and play the timeline it plays the original audio without any of the edits I made.
Maybe I'm just missing one small step, maybe 5.1 sound editing in Audition is not possible? I don't know, but I sure do wish someone would help me figure it out. I've been messing with this thing for a couple of days with no results, please help.
Thanks, in advance, to everyone that responds!
Multi-track editing in Audition is a bit different. You will need to Export a multi-track file and replace your Asset in PrPro. If you had just a mono, or stereo stream, and were not in Audition's Multi-track mode, the simple Save would be fine.
As a side-note, since you have edited in Multi-track Mode, I would keep the six discrete WAV files and Import them into PrPro. The Exporting of these is not quite as intuitive, as one might hope for. The Surround Sound Export is at the bottom of the View drop-down, not under File>Export. Now, I am looking at my Audition 2 on the laptop, so 3 might have made a change. Can't get to it on my workstation, as it's busy right now.
