Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Breaking Parts into Events

Breaking Parts into Events

Sometimes it's easier to work on smaller events instead of a whole part. If you want to work directly in the Project window on events that are within a part, you can break the part into its constituent events.

To convert an audio part to the audio events it contains

1.
Select the part by clicking it with the Arrow tool (Figure 8.6).

Figure 8.6. Selecting the audio part in the Project window: You can't see this easily here, but the part is outlined in red to show that it is selected.


2.
Open the contextual menu by right-clicking the part.

3.
In the menu that opens, select Audio > Dissolve Part (Figure 8.7). If you don't have a two-button mouse, use the main menu.

Figure 8.7. This command dissolves a part into events—the reverse of combining events into a part.


The events that were in the part will now be displayed in the Project window (Figure 8.8).

Figure 8.8. Each event in the part is now a discrete element again.
