Ahh found the answer. the premier version that I have is CS5...not 5.5 THAT is the problem. I have to upgrade premier to 5.5.
Whoa this gets better and better. It is NOT just and upgrade folks. You have to purchase the WHOLE suite to use this function. So everything I was sold on the go to CS5.5 Premier and Auditon...I can't use it for becasue I did not get the whole suite. Amazing. I guess I missed that somewhere! I am told that this is a "PERK" for purchasing the suite. So PLEAE Adobe, let people know that this funtion is a perk....have one of your "Evagenlist" speak about this in one of their sales pitches demonstrating the dynamic link. I don't need any of the other programs that come with the suite...so don't punich your users with this kind of ridiculas reason. "PERK"...unbelievable. If only I had known.
Sorry, but something is still unclear to me. Why are you complaining that this 'perk' is not clearly mentioned in bold when you also state:
I don't need any of the other programs that come with the suite..
If you don't need any other program, what are you missing?
All I need is Premier and Audition....I don’t need the suite. I purchased Premier and Audition for the workflow advertised i.e. the "Edit in Audition" function. After purchasing and trying the feature AND finding that it was not available unless you purchase the WHOLE suite is crazy. I don't need Photoshop etc. I would have spent a couple days researching and digging, I would have found this out. If should be noted strongly to potential purchasers that the option is only available in the suite. The work "perk" came from the research I did following the question I posted here yesterday and that was the term an Adobe rep gave someone else in another thread.
The main reason I purchased the two was to streamline and make the work more efficient. Now I still have to do it the old way...can't use power that the program has because it is not offered unless you buy the suite. That to me is just ridicules. Hope that clears it up for ya.
You do NOT need the suite to access the "Edit in Adobe Audition" feature.
The version number of Premiere MUST be the same as, or higher than, the version number of Audition, though.
I run Premiere CS5.5 with Audition CS3 and have no trouble accessing the "Edit in ..." function. FWIW I also run Photoshop CS5.
When I tried the Audition CS5.5 upgrade whilst I was using Premiere CS5, I could not access the "Edit in...." function.
Oh well maybe I am reading this wrong http://help.adobe.com/en_US/premierepro/cs/using/WSbaf9cd7d26a2eabf53ab041041081290f-7fe8. html and maybe the adobe rep I talked to didn't know what he was talking about either. LOL I don't doubt it!
I have the latest version of both programs. Just frustrating....
Audition doesn't use dynamic link in the way you probably imagine that it does. (as in After Effects)
All it does is allow a direct export from PP into Audition. You canthen "export" Audition out and import it back into PP once the audio mixdown is complete.
If you update the audio track in PP (or in Audition), it is not automatically updated in the way you'd expect a true dynamic link to behave.
For every edit mod you perform, you need to re export/import.
Ok so dynamic linking is the wrong term here...what I want to do is this...select the clip or sequence and choose the "EDIT IN AUDITION" function. The problem is that it does not allow me to do that. The funtion is greyed out. I have the latest versions of the software...both.
The option is greyed out if you right-click on the clip.
However, it shouldn't be if you select Edit> Edit in Audition> Clip/Sequence from the menu bar.
Well mine does not...and I cannot figure out why. Thanks for the help folks. I guess I will figure it out eventually!
Have you read post 5? This explains why you have the problem.
You have Premiere CS5 installed together with Audition CS5.5. Your version of Premiere does not recognize the later version of Audition.
You need to either revert to Audition CS3, or update to Prtemiere CS5.5. then Export to Adobe Audition will work.
