I have a long recording with lots of generic markers in the Audio Editor, which have all been manually named. Each generic marker is a boundary of what needs to be a region for the purposes of rendering to multiple files.
To enable multi-file rendering, I need to now create named regions from these generic markers. I can convert the generic markers to region start markers using the Convert Marker Types dialog but they lose their names, and have no matching region end markers.
So what I need is a way to convert named generic markers to named regions:
- the first generic marker replaced by a region start marker of the same name
- the second generic marker replaced with both a region end marker and a region start marker of the same name as the second generic marker
- and so on for all subsequent markers, with a region end marker at the end of the file
I’m sure there’s a simple way to do this (I have a vague recollection of somehow using the Basic CD and then converting the CD start/end pairs to region start/end pairs) but the problem here is the huge number of markers and the otherwise wasted effort in manually naming them.
Any advice on resolving my mental log jam welcome!
PS I know, I know – region markers should have been used from the outset, but I had a person pressing a button to drop the generic markers while listening, and then go back and type in the names …
