    About audio and video mixdown

    Hi

    I´m working on a project and with four programs, about one hour playingtime each.

    I was trying to do a Digital cut output to my camera (used as a deck). After 6-7 minutes the Digital cut stopped. If I understand the message right it was to much info to handle for my old PC.
    It´s two videotracks and four audiotracks.

    I did audio and video mixdowns and use these files and it seems to work just fine now.

    My problem is that I´m running out of space on my harddrives now.
    I have only mixed down program number one, so it´s three hour of program left to mix down.

    Does audio/video mixdown create new mediafiles?
    If so, can I delete these mixdowns-sequences and new mediafiles and still have the originalfiles and the original sequences left?

    How shall I continue?

    Yes, Audio and video mixdowns create a single new media file out of your multiple video or audio files. One media file for video and one for audio.

    When you are done with the mixdown, you can delete it (them) and your original files will be intact. Make sure you duplicate your sequences before you do the mixdown so that, when you overwrite the mixdowns into the sequence, you don't destroy your original edits.

    Thanx for the quick reply!

    I did´t dublicated the original sequence, I created a new sequence and put the mixdowns there instead. Hope it will have the same effect.

    Yes it does.

    You can delete the video/audio mixdown clips to make room for new mixdowns. You can also delete the sequence if You choose to make it, but make sure You don't trash the original source (pre-mixdown) sequences.
