Unlink and link video and audio
on Oct 26, 2012 at 12:34:34 am

Coming from an FCP background where I can click a button to be able to move video clips around without their associated audio. Is there some way to do this in Avid?

For example, I have some verite footage and I want to layer and rearrange some video and leave the audio in place. Every time I click the footage I want to move, the audio highlights and comes along for the ride, which is not what I want to happen. To prevent this I deselect the audio tracks but this is really slowing me down, and every time I click another video clip, the associated audio highlights again and comes along for the ride.

Are their solutions that will help speed me up?

I saw this post, but it doesn't really help me: http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/45/1529

Thanks.

Avid added a link audio and video button to the smart tool palette. Uncheck it. I'd show you a screenshot of the button but I'm not in front of a system right now. I'll try to post a screen shot later if you don't find it.

Thanks. So obvious now that I know where the button is... "Link Selection Toggle." Three bars that look like they're patched together.

Video for other newbies:





Thanks again.

On the left hand side of your timeline are the smart tools. The box with the 3 bars (above the red arrow) is the link selection toggle. Deselect this and you will be able to select individual clips on the timeline and move them around.
