Copy/Paste only audio?
on Jan 31, 2013 at 3:12:34 am

I've just finished editing a multicam concert program, for which I added credits at the end with the "Credits" generator connected to a background clip from my event. While the credits are running, I want to repeat the audio of a song that was performed during the concert.

I've located that song in the timeline, selected its range, and created a compound clip of just that song.

Two questions:

1) How do I insert only its audio (without its video) into the primary storyline beneath the credits?

2) If I had not created a compound clip of this song, but simply selected it in the timeline, how can I copy and paste only the audio of the selection?

Thanks,
Bill Rabkin

Detach the audio, delete the video.

[Bill Rabkin] "1) How do I insert only its audio (without its video) into the primary storyline beneath the credits?"

Choose Audio Only from the Edit Pop Up menu. See this page in FCP X help:

Here is a picture of the help page if that ever goes offline:

Sure. Option click the audio to Expand the Audio Components. Then select the range you want of the audio. Copy and then Paste to wherever you need it.

No, that doesn't work. You have to copy both, paste as in insert, then detach the audio, finally deleting the video.

Perhaps this will help:



(I'm preparing new tutorials for Creative Cow for this that will go into more detail. But they could take some time to get out.)

Thank you.
I had not still found how to do this audio only, and it's something I use a lot.

Perhaps you are trying to do this will a multicam clip. Unfortunately you can't separate audio at the moment for multicam.

For multicam, the workaround us to just disable the video (turn the opacity to 0%) and then just treat it like an audio clip, assign channels, etc. It works very well.
