Adding handle to sound bites using Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects

Adding handle to soundbites

Explore this course at lynda.com.

Whether you’re editing for documentaries, reality television, or corporate videos, you’re likely to run into this scenario: The talent is giving a long speech, perhaps unrehearsed. In the middle of that speech, you’d like to pull out a really good sound bite—but the pauses around the sound bite don’t create enough space (known as a “handle”) to cleanly isolate the segment. Sound familiar?

There are a couple of time-honored solutions to this problem, including muting the audio before and after the desired sound bite, freezing the video to extend the handle, or performing a split edit (cutting the video separately from the audio). All of these compromises, however, can appear visually jarring, taking the viewer out of the flow of the program.
