|Summary||0000271: Merge/split audio and video tracks.|
|Description||From the forum, dankinzelman made these requests (https://www.cinelerra-gg.org/forum/help-video/ideas-for-ui-modifications-improvements/):|
It would be nice to be able to spawn audio from a video clip to a new audio track. For example, when working on multi-camera projects, I often use the audio to sync the clips and then would like to throw the camera audio away if I have something better to free up vertical space in my timeline. But if I later screw up the sync somehow during editing, it would be great to be able to respawn the camera audio to a new track to recheck sync against my reference tracks. Since I know of no way to do this, I end up with a bunch of extra audio tracks floating around the session that I just keep for insurance, but as soon as I forget to arm one of them when editing the related video clip, they lose sync with their own video and become just useless clutter (worse yet, if I don't immediately notice that I've ruined the sync, I can make matters worse when trying to fix stuff). If we had something like a context menu item 'extract camera audio to new track), it would come in really handy, that way we could quickly fix problems like this. If there's already a technique for this please let me know, I DESPERATELY need it.
Perhaps even better (but undoubtedly more complex to implement) would be if all video sources containing audio automatically created associated (but hidden) audio tracks, which automatically undergo all editing operations performed on the video, but are hidden by default. If we want to separate audio and video, we can use an option like 'copy audio to new tracks', and those new tracks would then be unlocked from their associated video, but the video track would always have it's associated audio tracks available, undergoing the same operations, and thus permanently synced.
