I'm really frustrated! The tool is designed for editing video's and sound comes with video's, however I don't find the location of the editing tools conducive to editing. Trying to remove the sniglets (mouth sounds, breath, and other yuckies), is painful. First, you adjust the height of the tracks, making sure you add tracks above and below since tracks clip other tracks obscuring the view small sniglets at the bottom of the track, then you close the markers view because, well that scrunches the tracks. Adding the extra tracks above and below does help though.
Then you select reduce the size of the main viewing panel and select audio, adjust the audio viewing panel so you can just click on the silence button (SINCE THERE'S NO HOT KEY FOR IT). Then you click on your track and the audio editing tools panel shifts to where you have to re-adjust the screen in order to access the SILENCE BUTTON!
This wonderful dance continues until you finally decide that the aggravation of seeing the video, in the size you want as you edit really isn't worth the extra time to scroll the box down enough so you can select the button, each time you want to remove a sniglet.
This could be remedied by moving the volume down, volume up, fade in, fade out, silence, add audio point, and remove audio points next to the cut buttons on the timeline toolbar. Why you could even add play, rewind, plus 5, 10, 15, 30 second increments with + and - buttons that toggles direction on the same bar. In fact there's even room to add a toggle select button so no matter which direction you move the time bar it selects. So if you click the plus 5 seconds it selects 5 seconds based on current direction. ( the selected + or - button ).
I hope I'm not asking for too much since my frustration level is at an all time high (Yeah, I'm one of those people ;-).
Would it be too much to ask? When the left arrow key with the shift key is depressed that the whole blasted tracks don't re-adjust? When the shift key is selected to highlight one of those MORE annoying sniglets you just passed on the time line, occasionally, the tracks re-adjust when you stop and go to highlight it. Of course I have only to blame myself for the pervasive annoying sniglet sounds strewed across my video. You can be sure I wrote a most UNPLEASANT letter of recommendation to myself well before sending this note to you. I'm just hoping that I will get a much better response from you and I will ever get from myself.
I am really annoyed with myself at this time so I could be overly sensitive in regards to the buttons.
Thank you for letting me vent. I really needed to get that off my chest. Please excuse me as I continue to hunt sniglets.
PS. All the sniglets have been edited out of this post. 8^)
