I create short films, and I usually do most of my audio post in Premiere. I'm teaching myself more Audition because it's obviously a far superior program. Every time I get to this stage, however, I hesitate because of the following problem:
When editing dialog, fixing those room tone shifts is often the bulk of my work. My method is to dig around for slices of room tone deep inside clips, combine the slices, smooth them over with crossfades, reverses, etc. This is a little easier to do in Audition for a number of reasons (I like being able to combine clips into one file, AND the reverse speed often doesn't work properly in Premiere!) I use the "Edit in Audition" option in Premiere to bring the project into Audition, but, as we know, it only allows you to bring in 9.9 second handles and then exports extracts.
If I want to search for room tone beyond those 9.9 second handles (which is quite frequently the case) is my only option to re-import the original audio files into the Audition project? This seems a little cumbersome? Maybe I'm being a baby?
Should I just open the Premiere project in Audition as opposed to using the "edit in Premiere" pseudo-dynamic link option? I'm also spoiled and like to continue to tweak picture while working on audio (I know, I know, bad habit), so that makes me nervous. What is your process for finding those slices of RT in Audition?

Maybe an off the wall thought.
Premiere now has the same audio remix tool built in tahs has been in Audition for a long time.
Perhaps you could use that to extend your RT to whatever length you need.
I think of you have ~10 seconds of RT this may well work.
If it does, it'll be a very quick workflow.
