I have a problem. I have recorded a favourite, that should insert a silent part of x seconds, and assigned it to a keyboard shortcut.
I want the silence to be inserted at the current position of my play head, but it always goes to the place, where I at the recording of the favourite had inserted the silence when I run it. How can I achieve this.
You basically need to change the Absolute From Start to Relative from the drop down menu for each action. By default Favorite Recording always uses the Absolute From Start setting.
Thanks - will give it a try
Well I am sorry to say, but it did not work either. I tried to record the favourite at the start of the clip, but then it just adds the silence to the very start very time, no matter if I chose "relative" or not.
Anybody have other suggestions?
It can be made to work but it is not straight forward since how Favorite recording and editing works has never been fully documented. One thing to try which may make it work, but isn't exactly intuitive, is to select the whole of your file when recording the new Favorite ie. don't just select the bit you would want to work on if you were actually trying to do the favorite action manually.
If I get time over the weekend I will try and work out how to do it if you don't have any luck with your experiments.
Thanks, but it does not work here.
After a bit more experimentation unfortunately as you have discovered it doesn't work as one would have hoped. The problem appears to be that the Relative function doesn't work properly when you just position the Playhead where you want to insert the silence. Audion's Favorite just adds it to the front of the audio. However, although not very convenient, there is a work around. If you select a small amount of audio at the point where you want to insert the silence it does work. So Relative is relative to a selection not, I'm afraid, to the Play cursor position. You don't have to select much audio for it to work, a single sample will do.
Thanks for taking the time, maybe it could be a feature request some time.
I wrote up how I was able to accomplish this in this public Facebook post:
I'll copy and paste it here as well:
This is perfect! Thank you!
As far as inserting silence is concerned, it's just like any other edit you might perform. In Edit>Preferences>Data you'll find the settings that can alter the transition times - they're defaulted to a few milliseconds, and their purpose is to prevent clicks at edit points, which are pretty inevitable if you don't have a managed transition.
Winner, winner! this works like a charm! thank you
