Could the Premiere Pro Developers Create A Massive Gap Removal Function?
I'm editing a video that is a documentary-style film about someone's life. I have four interviews that are ranging from 15-40 minutes.
The application of the idea:
I'm going through each interview and there are significant pauses between answers which makes playing through the edit more time-consuming. I've already trimmed big pauses out but there are still smaller pauses (5-8 seconds) that I'm going through.
Could the team create a function that would trim the video based on the volume level of the clip? So, any clip that didn't meet a certain threshold of decibels would be eliminated. Obviously, there would be a cushion/sensitivity slider so the cut isn't made directly when the person talks, this gives them a margin. But this function could automate tons of time going through and trimming parts of the video.

Strip silence (like Avid / Audition) could be useful to achieve this - https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/audition/using/strip-silence.html
