Thread: Video editing software with 32bit audio only export (e.g. as wav)?

  1. #1

    Default Video editing software with 32bit audio only export (e.g. as wav)?

    Dear all,
    In the context of a scientific research project, we recorded
    (a) Video clips of participants saying words using a camera
    (b) at the same time high-quality audio using extra microphones (wav-files, 44.1 kHz, 32 bit)

    We would like to combine both tracks, and cut it into short clips of 1-4 sec duration. For this we tried the trial version of Sony Vegas. It worked quite well so far, however, we need to be able to export two different files:
    (1) a video file which combines the video with the new high-quality audio track => this works fine
    (2) the same bit of the audio track used for (1), but as an wav-file and with the original quality of 44.1 kHz and 32 bit. => here's the problem. Regarding the workflow that would work pretty good in Vegas, but the options for saving the selection as audio-file offer only 16-bit audio as maximum resolution.

    Therefore my question: Is there any software, like Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere Elements, etc. which can save only the audio track into a wav-file with 32bit resolution? (and, of course, maintains the 32bit resolution on file-import in the first place...)

    Thanks a lot,
    Andre

    What is your delivery platform that you need 32bit personally I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between 32bit and 24 bit. Anyway, Sony Vegas Pro will save .wav files at 24 bit. May be the studio/Platinum version does as well but I don't know for sure.

    Oh sorry, I should have mentioned that. No delivery platform as such. Data will be analysed in a specialised software for characteristics of the speech (e.g. fundamental frequency, formants, harmonic-to-noise ration, etc.). These analyses become more exact with higher resolution. As I said, it is a scientific project.

    An alternative way would be to cut the video, then see exactly where we cut it, note down the times (down to the millisecond), have a copy of the audio track opened in an audio editor, and export the same part of the signal as used for the video. But this is a very tedious procedure, given that we need to cut hundreds of such short clips. Therefore we are looking for a software where we can export the identical selection twice: once as video, once as high-quality audio only.
