In this tutorial you learn how to quickly browse, preview and import audio files using our extension QuickImporter for Audition, After Effects and Premiere Pro.

Transcript

Hello, this is Mathias Möhl for mamoworld.com and in this tutorial I show you how to use our extension QuickImporter with Audition.

Once QuickImporter is installed you find it in the menu at Window->Extensions->QuickImporter. Exactly as in After Effects and Premiere Pro, you can first choose a folder and then perform fast searches within the folder and all its subfolders.

You import a file by either double-clicking it or by clicking on this icon. Note that Audition has a multitrack editor and a waveform editor. For each of those two modes, QuickImporter behaves differently when importing files to do always exactly what you need. Currently the waveform editor is active. So when we click on a new file, it is added to the files panel and opened in the waveform editor.

Now let’s switch to the multitrack editor and start a new multitrack session. If we now import a file, it is directly inserted into the multitrack session at the current point in time. If you select a different track or move the play head, you can see that the files are always placed where you would expect it. So inserting clips in multitrack session could not be easier. And if you want to open the waveform without inserting the clip into a track, just switch to the waveform editor to open any files there.

Again this is Mathias Möhl for mamoworld.com - have fun with QuickImporter in Audition.

Hi,

It would be nice if in the next update of Quickimporter, the selected media would be loaded into the current selected folder.

Best regards, Andreas.

Hi Andreas,
thank you for this suggestion, this is a very good feature request. I've put it on my list of feature requests now.
In Premiere Pro, QuickImporter is already doing this and in Audition, as far as I know there is no folder structure. But for After Effects this is definintly something we can and should add in the future.

Cheers,
Mathias
