  • move audio tracks to the bottom of timeline

    Hello all,

    I have vegas 14 now and although I like the separate audio for each track it make my timeline very tall. How can I move them to the bottom of the timeline. While working with clips, I dislike it beneath each individual video while editing.

    Ungroup the Audio from the Video and then Grab the Header of the audio track and drag it down to where you want it

    Hi Chris

    Just to add to John’s reply, I too separate my video tracks from my audio tracks and put them at the bottom. Make sure to label them clearly !!! ( I fired up my old Version 12 to show what it would look like)

    You don’t have to ungroup them before moving the audio tracks. Just grab the audio track header and drag it down.

    Thank you for the replies and I can easily drag the audio to the bottom, Only problem is if i add another clip it again adds the audio in its separate track.

    Maybe to ask another way, If i have video track 1,2,3&4. I would like to have Audio track 1,2,3&4 but at the bottom. If i drop in a new clip in track 2 I would like it to add to audio 2 that is currently the second down audio track. (6th from the top) 4 vid/4aud.

    I can drag it each time and it works, just wish i could somehow sync them when needed and un-sync them when not.

    Hi Chris

    The following example is what I understand from your explanation. It may not be what you’re looking for but it may be the gist of it. You can extrapolate from it.

    1- Just select the required tracks by holding the Ctrl on the keyboard. No need to Un-group if you don’t need to.

    2-Drag tracks to where needed (black line is your reference)

    3-This is what it will look like.

    As far has I know, the only way to insert a video without the audio track would be to separate the video and audio tracks before inserting them. I don’t know an other way. Maybe someone else does.

    Cheers !

    Vegas just doesn’t work that way. Premiere does – but that’s a different timeline paradigm. Vegas keeps the video/audio together. Yes, you can then move it to another track but it doesn’t do what you’re requesting automatically.

    I suppose you could write a script that would do that for you. Then you’d have to add all new files using the script.

    Sorry Chris, it all has to be manually dragged to where you want it….. In the meantime, you sure you don’t wanna upgrade to a more recent Vegas version?

    Man Edward, that must would be a very complex script to write. Only you and Waag i know could pull that off, lol
