Removing Native Audio From Captured Dvd

Question

Several years ago I had 210 minutes of old family Super 8 movies converted to 2 VHS tapes. In the process an audio track of elevator music was added. I then had the VHS tapes converted to 2 DVDs by Sony ImageStation, and the elevator music was retained (clearly this was the point I should have had the audio deleted).

 

I'm now working on updating the DVDs, adding better chapters, transitions, etc., and one of the main things I'd like to do is replace the elevator music with songs that I actually like and that make some sense with each chapter. I bought EMC10 just for this reason, and used it to capture the DVD to my hard drive. At this point I cannot figure out how to remove the native audio so I can replace it. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. And since this is my first post, if I have neglected to include vital details please let me know and I will add them. Thanks in advance.

Open VideoWave, bring in the captured video, click on the speaker icon, above the preview screen, then select Mute. Click on the play icon, and your native audio should be muted.

GrandpaBruce - thanks for the quick response. I will try that tonight when I get home. I take it there's no way to actually delete the native audio (and save some space when I add all new audio and burn a new DVD)? Thanks again.

You are right there is no way to delete the native audio while working in Videowave. After adding some new audio to one of the other audio tracks and then burning to a DVD (or ouputting to a video file), your new audio will become the "new" native audio and the original native audio will have been deleted so the old native audio really does not take up any space.

Thanks myguggi - sounds like I'll be able to finally replace that elevator music - my family will be forever grateful!

Any chance your pc has a/v inputs and that you could re-capture your DVDs that way?

 

I would assume that if you captured your DVDs that way, and if you didn't connect the audio cable(s) to your pc during capture you wouldn't have audio. Then you would have to determine if any drop in video quality as a result of that capture method is worth it.

 

Not perfect, but just a thought....
