    On my timeline an overlay of the audio channels suddenly appeared. Is there a way to hide them? I tried overlays and audio names in the wrench icon but that did not work. Using Premiere 2024.4.1 Build 2.

    Is it possible that you can screenshot the issue of what you explained there? Then perhaps I can get a better idea on whats going on to help you on this. I look forward to your reply soon! 🙂

    Ohh wow they look like 4-5 rows of the exact same clips put together. Yeah there is the way to hide them. You may need to right click the rows and choose to hide them. This video I found may be able to help you with that:

    What I am talking about are the overlays Ch.1, Ch. 2, etc. I never had those overlays pop up in 15 years of editing on Premiere. They showed up when the new release came out on June 7th.

    Hey Daniel,

    I have unsuccesfully tried to replicate your issue in my version of PPro.

    However, as the audio clips appears to be grouped, are they part of a surround recording setup?
    (unlikely as the waveform(s) looks identical)

    I can only think of two causes, that might be interlinked:

    1) You have all the clips in a multi-cam sequence, and that this is why PPro give you the individual track identifications from source?

    2) Maybe try select all, and unlink all of the of the clips and see what happens?

    Hope that this helps?

    Thanks Mads but the problem is still there.

    I’ve been editing this feature film for the past month and the track identification markers were not there until the new release on June 7th. All the dailies were synced by the DIT and all the footage was imported into the project well before this problem appeared. It is not a multi-cam sequence because I am unable to flatten the audio. I’ve worked on some films that I would have to sync through multi-cam and I never encountered track identification markers.

    Hey Daniel,

    I’ve tried again, and can’t replicate your issue.
    Tried the new sound panel that can ID what is on the track.
    Made no difference.

    Did notice that “Labels” has been changed in prefrences, but that is only to do with colors.
    Maybe there is a bit of “rogue” code for a future version hanging around.
    Could be if you use Teams or Production, that it changes the view?

    If you can, maybe roll back your PPro to an earlier install?

    Either way, it is one for the Adobe engineers to answer.
