Removing audio from a DV recording?
Posted 26 October 2009 - 08:01 AM
Obviously, when DV video is captured into an NLE program via firewire, both video and audio are transferred together. This may sound like a silly question but is there any way of disabling the audio from a MiniDv tape or preventing it from being transferred down the firewire stream?
On a related note, I have to add narration to this project. I admit that Ive never worked with audio before in NLE programs. Ive just discovered that Ulead has a feature for recording voice but the details in the help guide are extremely brief and don't answer my burning question. For those that have used Ulead, I'd like to know if I stuff up my narration, can I record over it again with new narration? Also for those experienced with Ulead, is there in fact a way that you can delete audio with this software?

Failing that there are ways you could strip the audio out of your captured video file, but that's a horribly clumsy approach and I can't believe it'd be necessary.

"Windows Media Player Error Message Help
You've encountered error message C00D11B1 while using Windows Media Player. The following information might help you troubleshoot the issue.
Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file. You might encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:
Your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller, requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update at the Microsoft Web site, or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. Try using Device Manager to check the status of your sound device.
To check the status of your sound device
Do one of the following:
If you are running Windows XP, click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Manage.
In the pane on the left, click Device Manager.
In the pane on the right, expand Sound, video and game controllers, and then look for the name of your sound device.
Do one of the following:
If your sound device is listed but the icon includes a red "X," the device has been disabled. To enable the device, right-click the icon, and then click Enable.
If your sound device is not listed, in the pane on the right, expand Other devices. If Multimedia Audio Controller appears in the list, right-click the icon, and then click Update Driver or Update Driver Software. Follow the on-screen instructions to find and install the driver software.
If you are not able to find and install the correct driver software, see your computer manufacturer's or sound device manufacturer's Web site for further assistance.
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again. For details, see your computer manufacturer's or sound device manufacturer's Web site.
You are trying to play a file on the Internet and the server might be temporarily unavailable or there might be a network issue. Try again later.
You are trying to play an MP3 file that contains compressed ID3 headers. The ID3 header is a portion of the file that stores the song's album information (for example, the song name, artist name, album name, and genre). This information is sometimes called a "tag."
To fix the problem, make a copy of the file and then use a non-Microsoft ID3 tag editing program to remove or reset the file's ID3 headers. After you remove the ID3 headers, Windows Media Player should be able to play the MP3 file.
Attempting to remove ID3 headers might damage the file and make it unplayable. Therefore, always make a copy of the file before you edit it.
If this solution does not resolve the problem, the file might be corrupted."
Well, I am well and truly confused. I have closed Ulead Video Studio and there is still no audio coming out of the computer speaker. I have a 30 day demo CD of Ulead Video Studio version 11 (that I haven't used yet) but I can't say whether it will solve these audio problems or not.

Okay, Ive turned the volume back up (within Ulead) in the audio test video I made and sound is restored (not only for that particular video but for all sound sources on the computer.) I also played back the same audio test video in Windows Movie Maker and this time, it plays fine (and with audio unfortunately.) However, I also played another video that I mentioned that I had played a few minutes ago (where I had no sound coming out of the speaker) and that error message came up that I had received initially with the audio test video. The file could not be played. I then tried to play the video a short while later and it played back fine this second time.
So to conclude, turning down the volume control in Ulead does not remove audio from video but it affects the volume of every audio source coming out of the computer.

See if you can track down (and or edit) the hot-keys for Ulead; might be a key command to do it al'la FCP/Avid/Premier. Just grasping towards straws as I'm sure you are. Might, honestly, be a good idea to look into an upgrade (an older version of permier perhaps?)
