    Insert leaves Audio behind

    Gazzaspi Level 1

      Hi

       

      If I try to "insert" a video clip by clicking the icon from my  source monitor to my timeline, the audio track gets left behind.

       

      It appears that the video and audio are unlinked.

       

      However, if I drag the clip  from the source to timeline, there is no problem.

      How do I reset it? I know its simply, but I just cant remember!

      Helps will be highly appreciated.

       

      Thank you very much.

          Make sure that your Source Track indicators (A1, A2, etc.) are "on" and aligned with your Target Track indicators (Audio 1, Audio 2, etc.), which also must be "on." These are found at the left end of your Timeline panel.

            Hi

             

            Thank you very much, that fixed it.  The Clip has a 5.1 audio track and the track was not  'ON' as you said.

             

            I wonder why it works when, you drag and drop (even when the track is off)

             

            Once again many thanks

              That's just "the way it is." When you're doing a keyboard edit, the source and target track indicators serve to route the video and audio portions of a clip, giving you a more granular level of insert and overlay editing. When you drag a clip to the sequence, however, it is assumed that you want all portions of a clip, and you'll then work with it within the sequence.

               

              Both are valid modes of working within Premiere Pro, and both have their application. Just use the one that works best for your purposes at the time.

                Hi Colin

                 

                Yes, I see, that makes sense.

                 

                Thanks for the answer.
