How to Import Markers into Adobe Audition
It’s pretty easy to export your markers out of Adobe Audition. But for some reason, I couldn’t find any information on how to import markers into Adobe Audition.
I have a list of markers that were manually created in a text file and I wanted to import them into Audition.
But no matter what file format I tried, Audition wasn’t able to import the file.
After some trial and error, I came up with a way to do this using Google Docs.
1. Create a Google Doc Spreadsheet
Create a blank spreadsheet with the following columns:
Make sure to format the ‘Start’ and ‘Duration Time’ columns as ‘Text’. Just highlight the columns and from the Google Doc menu choose Format > Number > Plain Text.
2. Enter Your Marker Information
Enter your marker information using the same format that Audition uses for exported files:
I just put ‘decimal’ and ‘Cue’ as the default values in the ‘Format’ and ‘Type’ columns respectively.
3. Export Your File
Export your Google Doc spreadsheet to a tab separated text file:
Select File > Download As > Tab Separated Values (.tsv)
IMPORTANT: Once downloaded, rename the file from a .tsv extension to a .csv extension. Otherwise, Adobe Audition will give you an error when you try to import the file.
4. Import Into Adobe Audition
In Adobe Audition, select File > Import > Markers from File and select the file you just renamed.
And voila! Here are the markers imported into Adobe Audition:
