Tool to Remove Audio Tracks from P2 Footage
on Apr 16, 2012 at 3:45:56 pm

Hi all,

We shoot with an HPX-500. Sometimes on 3-4 cameras. We use Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 for editing, which is pretty amazing with MXF files.

I am wondering if there is a 3rd party program out there that will remove audio tracks from clips. Why? We usually have a master audio track either multitracked or on a different system. I only need one reference track typically, so the other three tracks that get recorded are just wasting space. Additionally, I think Premiere may try reading all four tracks in the footage whether they are in the sequence or not, which I imagine increases disk activity and slows down performance, especially when there are 4 cameras involved.

Now, I know how I could do this manually by removing the audio track XML data, but I'd have to do that for EVERY XML file.

I do know that if I export MXF from Premiere Pro, I get 2-channel audio.

Any ideas?
