pausing timeline and audio during audio preview
on May 7, 2011 at 2:10:46 pm

Is it possible to stop the time-line in place while reviewing audio. I know I can review the audio by hitting the period key - but if I hit the period key again it goes back to where the time-line and preview originally started. What if I want the time-line to stay where I stop the preview?

is this possible?

thanks!

How about if instead of previewing the audio, you SCRUB the audio?

You'll find the how-to's a little bit down the page. If you hit the Caps Lock key, you disable the video, and scrubbing can be done at just about any speed you want.

You can even add a marker to the audio layer: once you have the right spot, highlight the layer, and hit the * key (numeric keypad) to add a marker. Annotate that marker if you wish by double-clicking on it.

Thanks Dave that's what. Have been doing - I'm working with kinetic text and spoken word performances and the scrubbing is sort of hard to decipher sometimes. Thanks for you response.

[michael salinger] "the scrubbing is sort of hard to decipher sometimes"

No doubt about that. Unfortunately, I don't know of any way to stop the timeline cursor at a desired spot during an audio preview.

However, the more you work with scrubbing, the easier it gets.
