Removing tracks from a clip
on Oct 5, 2009 at 3:46:01 pm

Hi! I have a slew of clips that someone mistakenly captured with up to 16 audio tracks, and I only need the first two. In Avid Media Composer, you can select a clip, call up a "Modify" command and you have the option of deleting as many tracks as you want, even the video. Is there something comparable in FCP? Thanks!

when you insert/overwrite/whatever the clip into the timeline or canvas, make sure that only the sources for v1, a1, and a2 are selected, the other audio tracks will not be brought into the timeline, as far as specifically DELETING them from the source file, that I am not sure of.

Thanks for responding so quickly, Christopher. What I'm trying to avoid is having several extra tracks added to my timeline just by opening up a clip in the viewer. Avid will let you modify a source clip after capture right in the bin (also freeing up drive space), which is what I'm trying to see if FCP will do.

you can 't do it in FCP, but you can in QuickTime by selecting the clip open it in QT select "Show Movie Properties"(cmd-j) and deleting the audio tracks you don 't want.
