    Proxy Workflow - Looking for a way to ignore Proxy Audio

    Premiopolis Level 2

      Ran into trouble using proxies that were generated without the same number of audio channels as the original source.  Without matching audio track assigns PPro will not allow it to be a workable proxy.

       

       

      Worked out a number of ways to accommodate this and a series of consequent challenges, but in retrospect, would it no make more sense for PPro's proxy logic to allow it to ignore audio altogether.  Sound is not generally the playback bottleneck necessitating proxies, so would it not make more sense, in Proxy mode, to use picture-only from the Proxy, sound only from the Original?

       

       

      I can imagine, for technical reason, this is not possible: perhaps playing sound from the original media requires the same throughput as playing sound + picture.  But who knows.
