Removing ambient noise, like air conditioning, computer fans, or even modeling lights in Adobe Premiere is a breeze if you have access to Adobe Audition. It only takes mere seconds.
When I'm working or filming tutorials on the go, I don't always get a chance to remove unwanted ambient noise out of the room. This is especially true if you're editing on the go, like when you're working out of hotel rooms or inside your car. Technology then has become my saving grace, more specifically using Adobe Audition in conjunction with Adobe Premiere.
In a couple of short steps, I have the ability to remove air conditioning noise, wind noise, or even my computer fan in about thirty seconds - if I wasn't slowing it down for the tutorial. If you like to shoot tutorial videos or behind the scenes videos, the video above is for you. Consider it your saving grace!
If you don't feel like watching the video however, here's the basics of how to make that happen.
1. Right Click your footage in your timeline.
2. Select Open in Adobe Audition.
3. Make a selection of the area that you want to remove.
4. Press Control + P on a Mac to select the noise you want to remove.
5. Press Control + A to select your whole timeline.
6. Press Control + Shift + P to remove your selected noise from the timeline.
7. Press Control + S to save your changes, which will automatically replace the clip in Premiere with your edited audio.
And done! It's really that simple!
I hope that comes in handy for those of you editing video!
