    Relinking missing audio captured from DVD

    I captured some video from a DVD, cut it in the timeline, and then managed to delete the MXF file for the audio! I captured a single master clip from which I extracted all the sub-clips, so it's a question of restoring the audio for the master clip. Coming from DVD, there was no time code. I can re-capture just the audio but I how do I get it to relink and line-up? I did give it a tape name and MC shows the start time and duration for the master clip.

    I'm guessing the tape name will help with the relinking. Could I use Modify to set a start/end time code for the master clip (currently at 0 for both) and then do the same for the re-captured audio? But that wouldn't help in getting the audio sync'd up - how would I do that, assuming this is the way to do it?

    Thanks

    I'd capture the video and audio again (the video could be low res)

    Then work out the timecode difference between you new capture and you old capture.

    You will then need to unlink the new capture master clip. Modify the start timecode to accomadate the timecode difference and then relink. The new captured clip should then match the old clip in terms of timecode to picture.

    If the tape name matches you should then be able to relink the sequence and have it connec to the new media.

    Re: Relinking missing audio captured from DVD

    Just to clarify, did you capture the DVD directly into MC, or did you rip it to an intermediate file, and then imort that?  If the latter, you can import it again, and have the same MXF's.

    It was directly into MC using the Analog Mojo, Randall. The output is from a Blu-ray player (SD DVD) through the component output of the player. It was quite a few months ago that I did the capture and from what I can tell, I set the capture duration, started the capture and hit play on the DVD player. I just let it capture until it hit the limit I set.

    Re: Relinking missing audio captured from DVD

    OK ... we've been bitten by that as well.  Now, when possible, we rip the DVD so we have a source "file" as a backup.
