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.
