Question

I have used several Roxio Creator software programs for many years.  I now use Creator NXT 5 Pro.  I want to use a DVD I made with an old version of Roxio software and remove the sound so I can re-create it and include narration and music which will be acceptable for You Tube use,  because the music used originally is copyright protected and prohibited on You Tube.  I am at a loss to know if or how I can accomplish this.  In My Videowave I added the DVD and then attempted to edit out the sound and was unsuccessful.  Please describe to me if this is possible.  I am trying to avoid producing an entirely new video from scratch.  An example of what I am hoping to accomplish on You Tube can be seen at my channel:  travldtwoseven at www.youtube.com

I know in earlier versions of Videowave you can add or remove and audio or edit it and then replace it in the same videowave program.

Not sure about NXT5 Pro if that's what you used for the original program. But I do believe you can do the same with it.

But as far as using that videowave program with new versions of NXT---NOT ! Instead of adding the DVD itself, why not just extract the music you want from the DVD

and edit it and then add it to the videowave program ? I have extracted lots of audio (using "what you hear" from my sound card) from many of my DVD's and used it in a videowave program.

If you have the DVD video in Videowave then simply mute the native audio track. Add any "new" audio on the other available audio tracks. After rendering the new video you will no longer

The original video was produced with a very old Roxio Creator program and then burned onto a DVD.  I do not know how to edit it with Creator NXT5 in Videowave.  Are you suggesting I treat it as a video clip and mute or turn off the sound?  And if so, how would I then be able to add narrative and music on those separate tracks?  It is about 15 minutes long.  Any help will be very much appreciated.

How old is your "very old Roxio Creator" program, ie what version did your use? The basic edit operations in Videovaw NXT 5 have not changed in a long time.

First of all, mute the native track.

Have added the DVD video to the video tack in NXT 5 Videovawe?

Do you have the narrative and music that you want to add?

We aren't trying to give you a hard time but an answer is based on a complete understanding of what you have and what you want the outcome to be.

Once  you rendered the files and Authored them to a DVD any separate audio track are combined into ONE native audio track and any muting or edits will be on that combined track.

Since it is now one track, any possibility of stripping or replacing only a separate part of the audio is out of the question.

If you are willing to mute the whole native audio and add new narration, music or other audio effects that can be done.

Otherwise you would need the original clip with its' native audio to just replace the added music since it has been combined into the one native audio track.

But it is simple to mute either all or part of the Native Audio Track and add an overlay to take its' place.

Thanks for your suggestions and the information you have given.  I have used "Copy and Convert Video" to cut out portions of the old video I made with Videowave in Easy Media Creator 6 or 7.5 (I don't remember which version) and have eliminated all sound.   I realize I will have to add new narration and also new background music.  Since this is my first time "editing video" rather than creating a video with stills and movie clips in Videowave, I will continue to experiment with the video I now have without sound.  My hope is that I can use this video, add narration where I want on that track and add music on the music track, and render a new video which I can post on You Tube.

I hope you are using Videowave to do your editing and not "Copy and Convert"

Yes, I am using Videowave in Creator NXT 5 Pro.  I have saved the converted file on my computer and I will add music from a file on my computer and will add narration with the microphone I use.

Thank you myguggi and Jim Harden for your suggestions and help.  I discovered that rather than remove audio first and proceed from that direction, it is so much easier to use Videowave and mute the original soundtrack, then cut the video wherever I want and add new music and narration.  As I mentioned, I never really edited a large movie clip previously and now feel somewhat stupid (and ignorant!!! of course) for having asked these questions in the first place.   A very good learning experience especially because I have used Roxio software for so many years and have been extremely happy with the results.  

Really appreciate your help.  Thanks!

Anytime you take on something new it is an exercise in humility :D

Not to confuse you farther but you can add extra audio tracks and keep the music throughout but by putting the naration on another overlay track, it will talk over the music. It has to be place the at the bottom of the tracks. Tracks one override all those above it.

That may be of use to you.

Thanks, Jim... You are SOOO Right!  Thanks for the additional information about added tracks.  On this one (The Galapagos) I chose to have new music and narration.  I appreciate having someone who is willing to take the time to answer questions.  Best!
