Separate Play buttons for Audio and Video

I would like to be able to have separate play buttons for audio and video. When I click play for one they both play at the same time. I want to be able to start playing the video on the track 2 while still playing both video and audio on track one. I don’t want the audio playing on track 2 until I decide I want to play it. Mac OS

Current workflow is:

  1. Use the Split Audio/Video option. It gives you 2x crossfaders so you can independently mix the audio and video.
  2. There’s also the option to load just the video onto a deck and then load a different audio track onto the same deck.
  • Somewhere between those two options, you’ll have to get jiggy with the mixing :slight_smile:

Quicktime has options to separate the MPEG-4 video and audio into different files. This can create extra options for mixing. The Quicktime process is non-destructive (doesn’t re-encode), so you’ll get the original quality.
