Monitoring Audio and Video

Most productions contain multiple tracks of audio and video, and at various points during the project, you may wish to see or hear only some or just one of the video or audio tracks.

You can see an example of this in a_icon.jpg, where there’s a title on V2 and three audio tracks, one containing the audio shot with the video, and the others containing narration and background music tracks. With video, you can enable and disable a track via the Toggle Track Output button in the track header.

With audio you can mute any or all tracks, or you can solo any individual track, which mutes all others.

To disable a video track

  1. To disable a track, click the Toggle Track Output button in the track header (you’ll see a slash over the eye icon) b_icon.jpg eye_icon.jpg. The track is disabled, and it disappears from the Program Monitor.
