  • Muting audio in a section of video

    I searched through the EDIUS PDF manual - but, I don't see any easy way for me to do this -

    I want to mute the audio (not the entire track) of just some sections of the video on the VA track.

    Try cutting at both ends and then moving cut portion to a video only track and then move back, the audio track will dissapear, or just adjust the rubber bands at both ends of the cut portion

      I would simply cut the sections you want muted and then enable only the video sections or if you knew they would never be needed ALT A to delete the audio

          alt + click audio part of clip (to select audio only) and press 0 (zero) to disable audio.

            Dave,

            Your method is the best. Alt A to delete the audio portion of the clip.

            Steve,

            I tried your Alt+Click, then 0. If I select one clip using that method, great. Then further down the timeline, I do the same thing to another clip ... and the previous one got enabled again !!! I think it worked like a flip-flop switch :-).

            Thanks, everybody for the responses.

              Takes longer - suppose you have ten-twenty clips to mute......?

                Yes - Dave is right. Too tedius to use the rubber band method. Okay for adjusting the volume of individual clips - but, just for muting, I rather use the "brute force" method - Alt A :-).

                  It should work I do this all the time if a previous clip gets enabled again you have not shifted selection. :)
                  But I see you already have a another way of doing what you want enjoy.

                  Btw If you know you will not need audio of particular clips you can drag them to a V track or disable audio when adding to timeline.

                    Steve,

                    I understand your method ... have to SHIFT SELECT all the AUDIO clips that I want at one go. But, I don't know that in advance ... I am removing processing audio one clip at a time. Hence, for me, ALT A is the best. Thanks anyway :-). I only require to remove some clip's audio - not all of them.

                      ah an even quicker way then is to only copy video from playback monitor to timeline - simply click the mute audio button and then no audio will transfer across.

                        All you guys are forgetting about the little speaker icon right above the timeline. Click that and no audio comes with the video.
