Chapter 10. Editing Audio > Locking and Unlocking Audio Clips

Locking and Unlocking Audio Clips

After you extract an audio clip, it appears with a pushpin icon at its far left. This icon indicates that the video and audio tracks are synchronized, or locked, at that point. But you can unlock the clip, then drag it elsewhere on the Timeline.

To unlock an audio clip:

1.
Select the audio clip (not the video clip) in the Timeline Viewer. If you’ve just extracted the audio clip, it should be already selected.

2.
Choose Unlock Audio Clip from the Advanced menu, or press Command-L. (If you don’t see this command, it means the audio clip isn’t selected.) The pushpin icon disappears (Figure 10.9).

Figure 10.9. Once unlocked, you can position an audio clip anywhere in the movie. Here, the clip on the right is shifted out of sync with its video.
