Hello everyone.

I am making a compilation video and I dont need the audio from the videos I am using. I am having trouble finding how to delete the audio track. I see the audio levels but thats it. Hope you can help me out. Thanks in advance.

You can't delete the audio, AE considers the video/audio to be one single file. All you have to do is toggle the little speaker icon for each layer to turn the audio off completely for that layer.

Not necessarily.

I checked a few Export options like AVI and Avid MPEG2 and Sound is on by default so depending on the format you want to output as, you will have to uncheck Sound if output settings allow for that. There are lots of cheap or free programs to demux the audio from the video and give you a video-only stream and you really should do that outside of AE before bringing the footage into your proj if you don't want to have to deal with it. You can eliminate the audio in most video editors by just outputting the video stream without sound.

It may be fine if you are using a separate music track and want to output audio in the final movie. No need to worry about demuxing or killing audio in the Output Module or Export settings -- just kill the speakers for the video layers.
