Is there any way to use the Clip Name and Timecode overlay effects with an audio file on an audio track?

 

I have several WAV files of voice-over that I have edited in my Premiere timeline. What I want to do is export the voice-over as a video file with Clip Name and Timecode overlays for the WAV files so when I send it off for review, the producer can see the audio file name and corresponding timecode to identify which audio clip/take is being heard.

 

For example...

200423_Sophia VO_003_Tr1.WAV (for the Clip Name overlay)

14:12:46:03 (for the Timecode overlay)

 

I was hoping I could place an Adjustment Layer on Video Track 1, apply the Clip Name and Timecode effects to the Adjustment Layer, and then select Audio 1 under Effect Controls > Source Track. Unfortunately, I am only able to select Video 1 (video tracks) from the Source Track drop-down list.

 

So far, this is the only way I can think of accomplishing what I'm trying to do:

  • Create New Item > Black Video (Color Matte also works) and place on Video Track 1
  • Apply Timecode overlay effect to the Black Video and set the Timecode Source to Generate in Effect Controls
  • Make a cut on the Black Video where each voice-over edit is on the audio track below
  • Move the playhead to the first frame of voice-over edit

- Double-click the WAV clip in the timeline

- Copy the timecode from the Source window

- Open the Effect Controls window for the Black Video

- Paste the timecode under Timecode > Starting Timecode

  • Create a text layer on Video Track 2 with the corresponding file name of the WAV file for that section of audio
  • Rinse and repeat for each voice-over edit

 

While this gives me the end result that I'm looking for, it's extremely time consuming when dealing with dozens or hundreds of edits. I would love to find an automated way to get this done. Anybody?
