Select all disabled clips in a sequence
It would be great to be able to select all the disabled clips in a timeline.
When I edit, I often disabled audio clips I don’t want to hear, but I don’t want to remove them (because I want to pass all the clips to the soundmix department by exporting aaf when the picture is lock).
When exporting aaf or omf, the disabled clips are not passing through. So up to now, I would need to duplicate my sequence, then re-enable manually all the disabled clips.
If there was a function to select all of them at once, it would be much easier for me.
Another potential work around would be to label (colour) the clips as you disable them. Once you want to select those clips right click one of the clips -> label -> select label group.

Would LOVE to be able to pass along disabled audio clips to the mixer in case an editor selected the wrong or a noisy mic by accident. Working in reality television, I ask my editors to cut everything in and then disable the audio clips they want to silence so it's quicker to find a better audio track, if there is one, during mix. Like the original poster, I would LOVE to be able to include media from the disabled clips in an AAF like Avid has for years. Premiere Pro 2022 still does not include this function during AAF export. Adobe, please fix this and make your pro's happier!

Thank you Nakahashi for your tip - that's saved me hours today

Good news everyone - the very cool and useful extension "Excalibur" let's you do this! It does cost money, $10 if I remember right, but is very much worth it in my opinion.
Johan Storm commented
Yes! I would also need this.
If several microphones recorded the same thing, I'd like to leave it up to the sound mixer to decide which one works best. Therefore I'd like to disable audio clips during my edit to make temporary decisions, but then export everything when it's time for mixing
I needed this today. Only option was to scroll through a 10 minute sequence and re-enable 30ish clips one by one.

Great tip, thanks Nakahashi!

Select all clips in a "Timeline"
Open the "Essential sound", assign audio type selection (e.g. dialogue), and uncheck the mute at the bottom.

it saddens me that I came here to find that this feature doesn't exist :(

I have needed this for years.

100% agree that we need this. Always a pain to go back through the tracks and turn the clips back on before exporting for sound.

For the love of all things, please add this. Please also add a keyboard shortcut to select-all forward or backwords of the time marker.

Would be super useful for me when editing multitrack audio. That way I could first just do a rough mix by deactivating certain mics and then quickly commit to the activated mics I want to keep by deleteing all disabled clips at once (with the goal of reducing the number of audio tracks for a more convenient timeline). I'm currently working on a project with around 30 lavalier mics running in parralel that mostly only pickup the person wearing them because of ambient noise. So it would be really helpful!
Julian J commented
Yes please. Would be very helpful

I agree, this would feature would be great. One work around is to change the color of every clip you disable, then you can select one disabled clip, then right click, go to label, and "select label group" to select only the disabled clips

I agree! This would be a great feature.
