Merging Clips and Audio (With a catch)
on Dec 31, 2009 at 8:54:27 pm

Heyo All,

I'm trying to merge my video and some separate audio recorded on an external device. I'm familiar with the "Merge Clips" function, and would like to sync the two separate files (video and audio) using in points.

Here's the tricky part... my video tracks already have (inferior) audio from the camera in them, so when I try to merge, the final audio track is a jumbled mess of the two. Is there any way to get final cut to recognize I need it to take JUST the video? If not, what would be the best way to go about deleting and replacing the audio?

Please take pity... I'm a dumb college kid who knows not what he does (but trying to learn). Much love and happy new years. Thanks!

I'm not sure what you are after, but you can (batch) remove audio tracks before starting to work on them.
Use this free tool to do so:

But a warning, you cannot undo this...
So if the ugly audio is needed for syncing, you're out of luck...
