    everywhere i looked i found reference to unlinking sound…..

    let me explain…

    I took a video on my iphone, its full of wind noise, I want to “detach” audio and then delete it like to do in filmora 9. Im feeling very frustrated because I cant figure out how to do such a damm simple thing.

    when i right the video in the timeline I do not see any reference to detaching the audio.

    In the EDIT page, once you have inserted your video clip in your timeline, OPTION-select (Mac) the audio tracks you want to remove, then hit DELETE key.

    Here’s a few more ways – right click on the clip in the edit page and untick link, then select & delete the audio only. Lock the video track and select the audio and hit delete. Go to the Fairlight page, select the audio and hit delete. I’m sure there are even more ways around this as it is a basic function and no doubt in the manual.

    In addition to all the good advice you’ve already received, there are also several easy ways to insert only the video (without audio) into a timeline in the first place, so you don’t have to remove it later.

    If you disable the track destination controls on any audio tracks, the audio will have nowhere to go and won’t be added to the timeline. If you’re a person who uses drag-and-drop to add clips to the timeline, you can also hover your mouse over the source viewer and you’ll see an option to choose audio-only or video-only.

    I use the track destination controls myself, since I insert all my clips using keyboard shortcuts and based on the playhead position; it’s faster and more precise. And the track destination controls allow you to choose exactly which tracks your video and audio land in when you edit them into the timeline. Especially useful when you have lots and lots of tracks!
