Good evening,

I have been recording screen-captured videos from my iPad explaining Math concepts (it's a Khan Academy style personal project). After I record it, I trim out the parts in which I'm in silence, either because I am making a diagram, or because I am thinking about what I will say.

I have a question related to automating Adobe Premiere Pro: can I automatically trim out those parts? Is there a solution out there that addresses that? Is it possible to build some code in the software where it trims out "anything below volume X"?

Thank you

Try the Auto Gate setting in the Dynamics audio effect. It will gate (turn off the audio) if the threshold of the audio falls below a specified level for a specified amount of time. Doing this manually would sound better but take longer. The gate won’t be able to tell the difference between a deliberate piece of speech and a mouth pop or click, so you may hear the gate open and close when you don’t want it to.


Note:It will not trim your clips, just affect whether you hear parts of them in your edit.
