Premiere Pro CS4 Audio Overlap Issues
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

Ok so I am editing my audio in Premiere Pro CS4. When i edited several clips in soundbooth I now cant layer or straddle an audio transition over 2 clips it will only go on either side of the clip. I don't know how to correct this because it has never done it before.

As you can see from the photo there is a small handle thing preventing me from overlapping the 2 audio clips with a say a constant power transition?

How do i fix this because im not going to red edit this whole wedding all over again Ive spent to many hours on it!!!

It needs to be fixed cuz the audio just doesn't sound good when transitioning from one clip to another... You will also notice that the unedited audio to the left is a blue ish color and the soundbooth edited audio is green....

any help?

thanks guys

You need to have some extra media ("handles") at each end of the audio clip to achieve the overlap. Double-click the audio clip so it opens in the Source panel. If the in and out points are the same as the actual start and end of the media, you can't crossfade/dissolve/overlap.

If you used "Edit in Soundbooth" from your original timeline, it's possible Soundbooth only exported the portion that was on the timeline rather than the whole clip. That could be the reason for the issue you are having.

This is exactly the problem. I think you'll need to re-pull that clip into your timeline from the project bin so that it has it's original audio and work from there....

Jason, put the clips on different tracks, overlap them and use a fade out on one and fade up on the other. It's a bit long winded but works if you haven't got the extra footage.

Peter - I don't think this will work in this case, as the clips are exactly the length they appear to be on the screen. Unlike normal chopped up clips, there isn't any audio before the start of the display on screen. Usually, the clip length on screen is the edited length version, so you can drag a handle and uncover some more of the file. If you've gone into soundbooth and back at some point you may well have accidentally trimmed it to the screen length.

To check, edit the clip in soundbooth again - and while in there, check if there is any audio to the left and right of the obvious track.
