I recieved the full audio mix from my sound guy. I deleted the original track from the window just to have his full mix working. I know need to re-edit sections and i need the original sound files to do it. How do i get the audio no when there's only video on my timelone?

    You're only hope here is Undo.

    Or go back to some saved version that is before the audio was deleted.


    Or, put another copy of the video on the timeline and attempt to cut and line it up the same way.

    Glad you found a solution.  Would "match frame" have worked?  That's what I would have tried first (granted, that's an old FCP method).  Select the first video clip, hit "f" to match frame and bring up the clip in the source monitor, edit only the audio down (I'd put it on a different, lower track).  That way the effects on the video would be preserved.


    Also, as an aside, whenever I'm making large changes to a project (like deleting entire tracks) I always duplicate the project in the project folder and name it "project_name_ARCHIVE_05_24_13".  That way I can always, easily, go back if I find I've made a mistake.  I'm in the middle of a huge five camera multicam right now and I make an archive copy almost every day.
