Trash all the footage but keep the audio?
on Oct 5, 2009 at 3:13:51 pm

Hi there,

again I have some trouble adapting my old AVID Workflow to FCP...

After finishing a Project I want to trash all the footage (imported XDCAM HD Clips) but keep the audio of my sequence online. Thats simply because our clients often ask years later for a foreign language version. I don't need to batch capture then!

I used to export an OMF File when editing on AVID systems. FCP can export one, too - but I don't want to import it to Soundtrack, I need the audio files inside FCP.
Exporting an AIFF doen't help, because I need all the clips seperately...

Any ideas what I can do?

Thanks in advance,
Matthew

Lock all the audio tracks and delete the video. Or, export the audio to aiff.

You're looking to delete the video media from the drive, but not the audio, correct? Generally the audio and video are combined in one QT file. So, deleting the video media deleteds the audio. There is a selection in the capture settings to capture video and audio to separate files, but I can't think of a case where that is recommended. Does seem like it would lower the processing overhead quite a bit however.

Maybe you should just export discrete aiffs. One for each track.
