Thread: Any way to auto-trim a clip based on audio level in Movie Studio?

  1. Question Any way to auto-trim a clip based on audio level in Movie Studio?

    Hi
    I do talking head blogging videos, and almost 100% of the time my video editing involves dragging 50-100 clips onto the timeline (already shot in sequence) and then trimming the start and end of each clip. And that's pretty much it.
    I do this using the audio waveform, and can clearly see when I start and stop talking, so can just drag the start and stop position of each clip to the appropriate spot.
    It's not hard but it's time consuming, same routine, day-in, day-out.
    Is there a way in Movie Studio to "auto-trim" a clip based on the audio waveform?
    e.g. It detects when audio starts, and then trims the clip to 0.X seconds before the start of the audio?
    I'd settle for a shortcut or menu option to do this, but a script that ran through all my clips would be awesome!

    Thanks
    Dave.

    I don't think Studio can run scripts but I could be wrong. I don't know of any automatic way to edit the clip.

    Could a keyboard 'record/playback' app help? There are several to choose from, e.g. AutoHotkey

    I don't think this does quite what you want here, but If you have MSP 12, you might try the VASST Fasst Apps Voice Assistant extension. It might help you with your audio workflow. For actual scripts you need Vegas Pro.

    I doubt it, as the silent space at the start and ends of clips is highly variable.

    Sorry. I assumed the action might be posible using keyboard shortcuts, such as:
