Cutting Part Of A Movie


rbwent

Question

Hi,

It's pretty self explanitory, but to fully explain, I want to cut out the beginning of the movie. I split the movie in half on VideoWave, and delete the first half. I'm left with the second half of the movie, which is what I want, but the audio (songs, narration, etc.) that went along with the second half remains stationary when the second half moves to the place of the first half. What I'm trying to say is, the audio and video seperate when I delete the beginning of the movie. When I delete the first half, is there a way to have the audio for the second half stay with the second half? It is really hard to explain, like always for me, but that's the best I can do. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot.

 

 

 

Also, I know I've asked this before, but does the new EMC 8 have an improved VideoWave? Like VideoWave 8, instead of EMC 7.5's VideoWave 7? If so, I will probably update.

The gurus here probably have a trick up their sleeves, but it seems to me that you need to start fresh, open the clip's internal tracks (dbl click on clip) and stick your songs, narrration, etc on the internal track. Close internal tracks (green arrow) and then chop your movie in half.

I have EMC8. I upgraded from EMC7.5. VW8 doesn't look or work much different for me.

 

Just between you & me, I wouldn't pay $100 for EMC8 if you have EMC7.5. It's probably worth the upgrade if you're running EMC7 or earlier.

You have made a very good post. Only two things to add. The original poster should be able to drag the songs narrations to their correct locations on the "normal" track. or if they are starting over, they can clip the movie first.

Thanks guys, I'll try your suggestions, and now I'll reconsider buying EMC 8. If the VideoWave hasn't made any major improvements, then you're right, it's not worth spending a hundred bucks. Thanks for you insight, all.

I have one more possibility for what I could do, because starting from scratch and dragging all of my audio back in the right place, for the movie I'm currently editing, would take a LONG time. So, I thought that maybe I could bring the whole movie onto DVD Builder and split it in half using "mark chapters". Well that worked great, but I want to delete the first chapter, and I'm not sure how. It won't let me remove it. If I can't do this, then I'll just set the quality to 'good' instead of 'best.' It can work either way.

I think it can work like that...In fact I was just going to ask about how to get rid of the playback audio, and I decided to check this post and there was a new one. Thanks as always.

When you delete the first half of the movie, the audio for the first half of the movie should be deleted too. The only exception I can think of would be if the audio wasn't imported as 'Native Audio'.

 

It might just be a playback problem. In VideoWave go to Tools\ Options\ File Control and DELETE the audio preview files.

 

If that doesn't help, could you give a little more information about what kind of video you're working with.
