I routinely edit 4-6 hour long podcasts with multiple tracks, some of which only contain short interview snippets. Although I have streamlined my workflow with Hindy considerably, now and then a minor mistake on my part can lead to massive problems. For example: If I cut (ctrl+x) something out of the project and forget to select all tracks, the audio is no longer arranged in the same way that I want it to. Yes, this is visible but when projects become this large, even on a bigger screen you might not be able to spot a mistake only a minute long in a six hour project. Yes, I can partially avoid this by grouping audio from different tracks together but that function has its own pitfalls and is no sure way to prevent this.
What I am proposing is an analoge to the de-bugging feature we find in coding: A function that automatically checks the overall/master audio of the project for silences or overlapping audio files (of course, quite often this is something we actually want: background music or people talking at the same time etc. Usually though, I work with an edited version of the main spoken word part of my audio and then add music, interview snippets and commercials), highlighting those as a de-bugger would source code and then let us browse through them to see, if there actually is a problem. It would be best if we could tell the de-bugger to not involve chosen tracks in this analysis in order to prevent mass-bug detection if we have a background sound/music track somewhere in the project.
This would really make my work a whole lot easier.
been waiting for this for so long!!
Waiting for that feature as well...
would help me a lot.
Would appreciate a feature like this as well!
