I logged and captured 7 tapes, all of which had audio, and it seems that on some tapes, premiere captured only video without audio. During this capture/log process, no settings were changed, especially not capture video and audio to just video. How do I recapture those tapes using the exact same timecode and the exact same file names and get the audio with it?
I dont see how this could happen!
Are you sure there is no audio? Did you play each clip in WMP? Is Pro’s audio tracked muted?
Pro often wont display a waveform or play the audio if the CFA files are not finished being created.
There is definitely no audio. In the projet manager window, the icon next to the particular clips with no audio have only a film strip icon with the speaker on top of it, designating audio. I just need to know how I can recapture those clips, overwriting the old ones, using the same file names and same timecode.
Looks like something went wrong in the Capture settings. Are you sure that you selected Capture Audio AND Video? If you did not capture anything else, PPRO should maintain your previously used capture settings. Just double check the capture settings.
DON’T WORRY, this isnt that big of a problem….When AVID editors run into this kind of problem they OFFLINE the media. Meaning that the program disconnects the link from the project to that specific media file. Then once the file is disconnected, you can delete the media file therefore taking away the file from the computer BUT NOT FROM THE SEQUENCE AND BIN THAT YOU ARE EDITING. Once the media is gone but the file is still technically in your bin, go back to your bin and go to re-digitize the media. It should ask you to put in the right tape number and it will remember where the media started and ended. Its sort of like having a permenant log of footage files in your bin. Tell me if this works or not.
Just out of curiosity, is the camera attached to the computer while you are trying to play back the clips? Also, Is anything showing up on the Premiere level meters? If there is audio showing up on the meters go into the playback settings and choose Audio Hardware Playback. It almost sounds like premiere is sending the audio to the camera.
The only other thing I can think of is that the audio is on ST2 (Stereo 2) and premiere can only capture from ST1 (Stereo 1). The XL1 and 2 record the XLR inputs to ST2.
