How should I remove audio from source footage (or prevent playback in source monitor) - best practices.
on Oct 5, 2012 at 11:16:21 am

I want to prevent hearing audio from footage when editing in PP CS6. In some cases the audio isn't required at all, ever. In some cases it should be preserved for syncing or just in case. I want to know how to efficiently take the unneeded audio out of my workflow early on when importing lots of footage so I don't hear it every time I'm setting in/out points in the source monitor for example.

I have already discovered I can right click on a source file in the bin/browser and then click 'modify' and change the audio channel, but that is cumbersome and changes the file when I just want to quickly change the way playback works. Once I'm on the time-line I'll unlink and delete unneeded audio, but if I could remove it before hand that would save time too!

This is my first question here (I think) and apologies if it's in the wrong place or has been answered already ( I did search for it ) and I thank you all for reading and helping out.

p.s. Just this once (in case I'm not notified of replied) if someone could ping my email to let me know of a response just until I'm sure I get email notifications of replies/answers to this post that would be great! Cheers! andreas [at} andreasandrews.com

In preferences there is an option for playing audio while scrubbing, untick this. You can also assign a keyboard shortcut to it, very handy as it also affects your timeline.
Else do what you mentioned and modify audio channels to none. You can do this to several files at once, and you can also set it back to include audio at a later time.

Hope that helps

Thanks for you help Dave. I always have audio scrubbing turned off, but it is a great hint nonetheless.

What has really helped me is realising that you can in fact select all the clips in a bin and set the audio channel to none. Last time I hastily tried this it didn't seem to work for some reason for reasons unknown, but having read your response and trying it again it works!

Cheers!
