This used to work fine for me - but now it doesn't, strange.

 

I have two tracks that I recorded in Logic pro 9.

I went to "File/Open Movie" in Logic - brought in an MPG and lined it up where I wanted it so that it matches the audio.

When I go to "File / Export Audio To Movie", I used to get a screen that allowed me to de-select the audio in the movie, so that the movie audio wouldn't be in the final exported movie.

 

I DO NOT want the audio from the movie to be in the export.

I have muted the movie audio in Settings / Video / so that it does not play while I roll the tracks in Logic.

 

I used to be able to deselect the movie audio when "Exporting Audio To Movie" but now I don't get that screen when going through the export process.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks, Giovanni5000.

    Which version of Logic are you using?

    I'm using Logc Pro 9.

    And like I said, this used to work for me, but now it doesn't.

    And I haven't changed anything, (re-installed Logic, or added any new software) in a long time.

    Did Logic update itself and delete this feature?

    It would be so much easier to just Export the movie with sound, than having to load everything into Final Cut Express.

     

    Just trying to post some video to Youtube - you know?

     

    Thanks!

    You have to do some basic trouble shooting routine to give a little more info:

     

    1) Use a different movie and see if the export works

    if yes then the problem could be your original movie

    if no try a a third movie

     

    2) Use a new project and try the basic routing: import movie, import new audio - bounce to Movie

    if that works then maybe there is a problem with your project and not with Logic. Back to your project and digg deeper

     

    3) etc ...

    Gio,

     

    I definitely think it's related to the type of movie file and/or the way the audio is encoded in the file. If Logic can't import the audio from the movie file I don't think it can replace the audio that's already there.

     

    However, I'm not sure that it always behaved like that or, (more likely) it has to do with the way audio is being encoded in newer mpeg formats.

    Logic Pro 9 won't give you the option in 64-bit mode. Why? I have no idea. I'm using Logic in 64-bit and I have the problem. I could switch back to 32-bit when I bounce but I bounce it as a music file then using ScreenFlow, extract the old audio from the video and just add the project to the movie. I'm sure you can do it in iMovie and Final Cut. Sure it would be faster to change it back to 32-bit but I'm stubborn. The only thing you'll have to worry about is if the audio syncs with the video.

    It's a "Quicktime" 64-bit problem and not a Logic problem and it's been like this for a LONG time. Until Apple upgrades Quicktime this function is not supported.
