MC8 timeline shows duplicate audio tracks
on Apr 30, 2015 at 10:36:01 pm

Hi all -

I've been working in a Media Composer timeline with several audio tracks - a mix of both stereo and mono. Yesterday I added three more stereo audio tracks, but for some reason I see a duplicate of each of those three tracks in my timeline. These duplicates cannot be deleted - for example, deleting one track labeled A17 also deletes the other A17.

My first thought was to go to the Hamburger menu > Show Track, and then deselect the repeated audio tracks. It worked and I even saved the timeline view setting afterwards. BUT as soon as I used a different view setting (for example, I have one with waveforms and one without) and then switched back to the newly saved setting, the duplicates were back. I have restarted both the software alone and the entire computer, as well as created a new sequence, but I am not having any luck.

I'm hoping someone can explain why this is happening and suggest a solution, if one exists! I feel like I'm probably missing something very straightforward!

Many thanks in advance

-Rebecca

I had this exact same issue when I took over a project from another editor. My only solution was to make a new sequence and cut the old into the new.

It was the dangdest thing.

Thanks Shane. Yeah, I've tried to create a new sequence but it didn't solve the issue unfortunately. Perhaps it's the project?

Perhaps. Make a new project, and new sequence, and bring the bin from the old project over...see if that helps. I recall it took me a lot of work to get the sequence right.

Update:

I created a new project and copied over all the bins from the old one. The duplicated tracks are no longer showing in the timeline, although they do still appear under Fast Menu > Show Track. I can deal with that though!
