When creating videos, sometimes finding that perfect song, music score, or track takes a while. Then when you place it together and the music isn’t long enough, manually cutting and extending the track can take some time. What if I told you there’s an easy and automated way to extend your selected track to any length.
Personally, I have edited a track to fit my project the long way before, spending a good amount of time sitting and splicing the track up into pieces, copying it and adding it all back together to make it work. Another scenario is cutting the footage down to make it fit the track instead. No longer will I spend hours editing tracks thanks to Peter McKinnon. In his latest video, he shares a very useful tip to automate the process of extending a track to any length.
You can jump to the 1:23 mark in the video to where Peter starts talking about this very subject. By using Adobe Audition and creating a new multitrack session, change the duration setting of that track, wait a few seconds and let Audition do its magic. Once it’s done, your original track has been remixed and looped together into your new targeted duration. It’s that easy, so much time will be saved from now on… at least for me. How have you been extending the duration of your tracks or music scores?
