  • Quickest way to replace audio

    Posted by Paul on January 20, 2006 at 5:30 pm

    I’ve produced and edited sequence using master clips thats were supplied to me. The video was originally captured and synced to the audio from the camera mic.
    I’ve now been given an audio file from the off camera mic captured from a dat tape. How do I replace the old audio with the new.
    I’ve tried merge clip but this creates a new master clip and wouldn’t automatically update the audio in the edited timeline.
    Thanks in advance.

    Does the timecode from the DAT match the master clips?

    You can replace any item in the timeline with another item by selecting the object in the timeline, select the new fine in your bin, hold option, and drag and drop onto the timeline oject. Should swap them right out. I just did this on a project where I did a rough voice-over track and had a studio do the final. I’m not sure if it’s the option key on a Windows machine so you might want to double-check that.

    OK, I’m an idiot in two threads simultaneously. I could have sworn I was in the After Effects forum. Sorry. I think the drag-and-drop method works in FCP as well. Can someone clarify?

    I’ll start paying attention to where I am now.

    The dat audio is one file containing all the slates. I guess I’ll have to split it up into the separate slates and re-sync it to the video using the clapper sound as an in point.
