Adobe Audition has been adopted by many journalist in Canada as the field/home audio editor during COVID-19. Only a few journalist were using it pre COVID-19 but now with most journalist working from home many more are attempting to use it. At the Canadian public broadcaster DALET is the in-house Networked editing system. I am appealing to Adobe to update the file management in Audition. For less tech savvy journalist Audition has been a nightmare doing their job. You create a session and than you add different files to the session. The next job is to extract clips, name them and place them somewhere, a bin maybe. I can isolate a clip, Save to New, and Save As with a new name. Sound great, right? My clips are visible in the Files window, with the new name along with the sesx file and my original sound files. I can save this session but when I reopen, my clips that I created and named are not listed, only the original sesx and sound files. The clips are on the computer somewhere but having to find them and drag them back is very cumbersome especially when working on deadline, and many have missed their deadline because of the slow cumbersome editing process. I can see from the many posts in this Community that users have been complaining about this for years. Whatever the reason has been not to make this improvement, please rethink your strategy. This update would make the lives of so many journalist less stressful while reporting on this horrific world wide event.
If you use Audition the way that it was designed to be used, you wouldn't run into these problems - as millions of radio journalists around the world know full well. If you open a file that you want to use clips from in Waveform view, and put markers around the sections you want to use (highlight the section you want to mark and hit F8), you can give each one a range name in the marker list, and if you right-click on an item in the list, it can be inserted directly into a session file. It doesn't disappear out of the list - you can save the list with the file. If you do this with all the files you use, and store them in the session folder, then it's not cumbersome, and works fine. If this didn't work, it would have been attended to years ago. You might not like it, but if you start to use a new system, it behoves you to learn how it works first, before complaining about it, I'd suggest. Yes, this might require a little mental flexibility.
What complaints you have seen have all come from video editors, who inherently don't seem to be able to cope with anything other than a bin system. Since the plan is to integrate Audition into the video post process, you may well see changes eventually - but they absolutely won't happen overnight; altering the file access system isn't trivial.
Thank you for taking the time to reply with your suggested workflow. Your arrogant demeaing reply though isn't becoming of an Adobe Community Professional.
This does tend to be the reaction to being caught out. And in terms of sheer arrogance, your original post takes a lot of beating.
