Have an audio clip in my PPro CC timeline. Right-clicking it shows "Edit Clip in Adobe Audition" as greyed out. (Edit video clip in After Effects works fine)
You need system specs for a software menu problem? Ok, I'll play.
- As mentioned above, Premiere Pro CC.
- Everything available through AAM has been installed.
- Windows 8
- WAV file.
- As mentioned above, no error message. The option is greyed out in the menu.
- As mentioned above, I was right-clicking the WAV file clip in the PPro CC timeline.
- Not in PPro CC, since PPro CC was just installed today. It worked perfectly fine in PPro CS6.
- No software other than background processes, and none of those interfered with the availability of this option in PPro CS6.
- TechSmith codecs from Camtasia.
- i7-990x, 24GB RAM, SSD drives, nVidia 680GTX, Soundblaster Titanium.
- Not applicable.
i appreciate your prompt response to all the questions.
It's working fine at my end with a wav file. Are you able to reproduce this with multiple wav files?
What is the source of those wav clips.
I can repro it with all of my audio files. WAV files, audio tracks from video files, etc.
Many sources - H4N Digital Recorder, Nikon D800/D4 cameras, Canon 7D, etc.
The underlying mechanism for enabling that menu option, checks if Audition is installed. The crude way Premiere checks if Audition is installed is that it checks the Windows registry for whichever application is registered to handle the file extension *.sesx or *.ses (in the case of Audition 3 and before). If it can't find that, it will disable the menu command.
So if you have a .sesx file from Audition, and you double-click on it, does it Actually launch Audition?
I have the same problem with CS6, the edit clip in adobe audition is greyed out. Worked fine with CS5.5 and Audition 3. When double-clicking on a .sesx file Audition is not lauched.
To be more precise, "edit in adobe audition" is working in the main menu but in the submenu "open in adobe audition" is greyed out. Thanks
If Audition isn't launched when you double-click on a SESX file, then you may wish to reinstall Audition. I know that's not a fun process, but it looks as if something isn't set up right.
I have been searching the forums and have not found a solution yet. Audition DOES open when I double click .sesx files.
I am running Audition CC 2015 and Premiere Pro CC 2014. This is my first download of Audition. This Premiere CC 2014 I have is my latest update.
I just ran into this problem and associating just the .sesx file didn't do it for me. so what i did is renamed a .sesx file to .ses for the older versions of Audition and associated this file with the new audition as well. Once I did this second association of the .ses Premiere Pro now allows me to send to Edit in Audition.
I am running Win 7 Ultimate
32 GB of RAM
So for you that are having problems and the .sesx file does open Audition but you still cant edit in Audition from Premiere Pro CC then try associating the .ses extension to Audition as well.
Yes, this is the only thing that worked for me. Change a .sesx file to .ses, double click on it, and tell Windows to associate it with Audition. Thank you.
Yes, I just tried this and converting a file to .ses worked. Months of problems with this now solved. Thanks
The previous solution didn't work for me. The .sesx file extension was already associated with Audition. But renaming it to .ses and associating again did its job. Now at least I can save some time working... Thanks a lot!
I have the same problem but on a Mac — the Edit Clip in Adobe Audition option is greyed out. Audition is registered to handle .sesx files. I’ve tried reinstalling it but it doesn’t help. Is the process of checking whether Audition is installed different on Macs?
I had this problem and fixed it pretty quick without the need to uninstall and reinstall.
Look for the default .sesx files in your Document/Adobe/Audition/6.0/Session Templates folder (on Windows 7)
There should be a list of preset .sesx files. Right-click one and set its default application as Adobe Audition by using the "open with" option.
Once I did this I double-clicked to open the .sesx files with Audition, closed it, opened Premiere Pro CC and VUAAA-LAAA the button is available and fully functional.
Hope this helps someone!
JoynnyZ001 thank you SO MUCH for providing a way around the above discussed problem WITHOUT having to mess about installing and uninstalling. I'm running Adobe CC on a newly installed system and so there is no way I should be having to re-install software already - your fix worked
JoynnyZ001 Than you so freaking Much!!!! i have had this problem since i updated to CC and no answers as to why or how to fix it!!! Glad i finally stumbled upon this thread!!! Got it fixed and it works like a charm!! Very Happy! Thank you again!
This method definitely led to me fixing my problem. What I discovered in the Document/Adobe/ folder was TWO Adobe folders: one had Audition in it, the other had Premiere and some others. So while I had tried everything listed in this thread to no avail, when I copied the first folder over to the second it now works as expected.
there's a problem because I can't choose audition as the software the file would open with. I choose it but it never appear on the list of softwares. I don't know how to say it but it doesnt work. Does anyone know what's wrong? And I have this same graying problem, and using Premiere Pro CS 6 (and autition cs 6). Windows 7. (Audition works fine by its own.)
I wonder if I did something wrong in installation. For example Does it matter if I choose to install the 64bit versions or the other one..?
JoynnyZ001 You rock dude! I got the update for cc today (cc 2014) and had the problem. Read your thread and it worked like a charm! If you were nicole kidman I would kiss u.
This worked for me as well. Thanks, thanks, thanks !!!
Thanks a lot for this workarround. I found the folder with .sesx files in audition preferences -> Media & disk cache, in de lowest box under Audition Session Templates.
Or go with ksanders308 suggestion.
this was actually not working for me: I am working with sound right off the camera, a 7D. I am also working on a mac computer. I too have the same problem: it allows me to enable Audition for the whole sequence but not for just the clip...looked through this whole forum and don't see my solution yet. please let me know if you can help. mostly i have a lot of noise on one small clip and just want to clean it up, otherwise video is clean.
