I can't put videos on top of Audio Tracks

Aug 30, 2013 8:55 PM

I m trying to overlay videos on top of aduio tracks. I have created a new sequence, but it won't let me drag anything to the timeline. I tried inserting it but it doesn't work it either cuts into the song or pushes the song back. The first day I used Premiere it worked, now it doesn't. I've updated, whatched the videos nothing is helping with the problem.


Please, Please help me.

    Lock your audio tracks.

    Use Overlay Commands.for the Video clip.

    Overlay or Insert Video ONLY.


    Read up and do the tutorials on 'Track Targeting' and 'Source Targeting'

    Welcome to the forum.


    Also note, that along with Shooter's directions, you can ONLY have Video on a Video Track. It will never go to an Audio Track. Just to make sure that you are not trying to do something, which is not possible.


    The alignment of the Clips will get your Video "over" your Audio, but it will be on a Video Track.


    Good luck,
