Video: Sending work from Premiere Pro to Audition

I've demonstrated this technique on many, many occasions. And I particularly like showing it because it illustrates very elegantly how convenient it can be to hand off work from Premiere Pro to Audition. To do some particularly simple tasks. It's true that Audition is an advanced post-production sound editing application. But it also has some really neat quick fixes, and I'd like to just illustrate this for you here. I've got a timeline here in Premiere Pro that has some background noise. So, let's just have a little listen to this.

One of the great strengths of the Adobe Creative Suite Production Premium 6 is the seamless integration between the various applications. Even so, the best-practice approach to sharing media and creative work between applications remains mysterious to many users. In this course filmmaker and author Maxim Jago breaks everything down into simple, clear steps, offering guidance on project and file management and examples that demonstrate the best use of the technology. If you use Adobe Creative Suite CS6 for video post-production, this course can make your work faster, easier, and more efficient.

Topics include:
  • Improving speech-to-text analysis with Story
  • Organizing projects in Prelude
  • Batch renaming with Bridge
  • Preparing images for video in Illustrator
  • Working with Photoshop files in Premiere Pro
  • Round-tripping a soundtrack from Premiere Pro to Audition and back again
  • Preparing content for After Effects in Premiere Pro
  • Sending work from Premiere Pro to SpeedGrade

Sending work from Premiere Pro to Audition

I've demonstrated this technique on many, many occasions. And I particularly like showing it because it illustrates very elegantly how convenient it can be to hand off work from Premiere Pro to Audition. To do some particularly simple tasks. It's true that Audition is an advanced post-production sound editing application. But it also has some really neat quick fixes, and I'd like to just illustrate this for you here. I've got a timeline here in Premiere Pro that has some background noise. So, let's just have a little listen to this.

>> Aquo is an energy drink company committed to health and fitness. Johanna represents. >> So, it's pretty clear right away that there's a telephone ringing in the background. The problem is, if we were going to fix this normally in Premiere Pro, we would go into our effects and we would look through our Audio Effect options. And we perhaps, look for something like a Band Pass filter. Maybe we'd apply some EQ. And we'd play around with it until we managed, just by chance I suppose, in trial and error and experimentation.

We'd find out the frequency of that telephone ring and remove it. It's a pretty laborious process. It's much faster to do it in Audition using Audition's spectral display. And this is super easy to do. You don't need to open the clip in Audition and then save it out. You don't need to go through a manual import or export process. All you need to do is right-click on the clip on the timeline, and choose Edit Clip in Adobe Audition. So, I'm going to select this option.

This is firing up Audition and its opening just the audio part of that clip in it. Now, before we get into Audition, I'm going to toggle back to Premiere Pro because I want to show you here on the timeline. Notice this clip is called interviewnoise.marv. And the audio used to be called interviewnoise.wav. But now, it's interview noise audio extracted. And if we look in our Project panel, in our bin, we've now got an additional file, interviewnoiseaudioextracted.wav. This has been added to our project.

The reason this has appeared in place of the original is that the designers of Premiere Pro follow an absolute rule, an absolute law of do no harm. They don't want to do anything to modify your original media. You always have to be able to go back to the original files if you want to. So, this file is created. It's actually placed next to your project file in a folder on your hard drive, wherever you've placed your project file. So, now we've got a copy of our audio that we can work on. And if we ever change our mind, we can always undo or re-edit the audio from the original clip. So, back over to Audition, we've got a regular waveform. And we can see that this is stereo because we've got left and right audio, and we can play this and listen to it again.

>> Aquo is an energy drink company committed to health and fitness. >> Okay, but it's still not so helpful because we've just got the same kinds of waveforms displayed as we would have in Premiere Pro. But up at the top of the display here in the Waveform view in Audition, we've got the Show Spectral Frequency Display button. And that's going to switch around the interface. Actually, what it's doing is taking this horizontal bar here and moving it up in the screen. You see I can drag this down if I want and drag it back up. It's just shifting the view a little bit.

Now, of course, I'm working at relatively low resolution here, so we can capture these screen grabs at 1280x720 resolution on a monitor that's larger with more resolution. You'll get a bit more detail in the display. Now, the spectral display works in a similar but different way to a waveform display. Waveform display's go left to right, so time goes left to right. And the height of the waveform indicates the amplitude. So the higher the waveform is, the louder the sound. With a spectral display time still moves left to right, but the vertical axis is indicating the frequency not the amplitude, not the volume.

So, you can see here on the right instead of having a DB display, we've got a Hertz display. So, lower down is lower frequency. Higher up is higher frequency. The amplitude is indicated by the brightness of the dots. So if I zoom in a little bit here, you should be able to see, just come in a bit more, there is the telephone ring. It's very, very clear in the spectral display. If I play this again, you can see it. >> (audio playing) Drink company committed to health and fitness. Johann. >> > Really obvious where that is. So if I want to remove it, all I need to do is, here I've got a Lasso Selection tool.

I've also got a Marquee section, I've even got a paintbrush to select with. But I'm just going to use the Marquee and I'm going to select this part of the audio. Going to be pretty lazy about my selection. I'm going to hit Delete. And actually, if you look very closely, I don't know if I can zoom in a little bit here with my mouse. You can see that Audition's dithered the edges of this just a little bit. It's smoothed it over so we don't get any weird digital glitches in the sound. If I now go back a little bit and play again. >> Is an energy drink company committed to health and fitness.

(audio playing) It's like a magical transformation. Now, obviously this is an ideal asset to demonstrate this feature. Let me just zoom out a little bit. So, you will find that with other assets where the audio is, let's say the sound you want to remove is a bit too close to the frequency. And amplitude of the signal you're not always going to get such great results. But if you've got something like this, it's amazing. And obviously, we could also use Audition now to clean up some of the other audio. There's a lot background noise later in this file. And we could use the amazing noise reduction features in Audition on that. Just for now, I'm going to press Ctrl or Command+S to save. Get rid of that asterisk so I know that the file has been updated. I'm going to toggle back to Premiere Pro and still on my timeline I've got my clip.

And let's play it. >> Aquo is an energy drink company committed to health and fitness. >> Fantastic. So I can now continue with my edit. So, all you have to do to send work from Premiere Pro into Audition. And that is individual clips, or you actually you can send multiple clips, they all just appear as a list of multiple items inside Audition. All you have to do is right-lick and choose edit clip in Adobe Audition. Its very straight forward and it allows you to pick and choose the features in Audition that you need to serve your edit.
