Issue
Some users have trouble dragging an audio-video clip into the Timeline. When the clip is dragged in to the Timeline, only the video or audio portion of the clip appears. Very frustrating, but there's a simple fix. It's called Source Patching.

 

Solution:

  • Make sure source audio and video (blue boxes) are patched in the Timeline before dragging or editing the clip to the Timeline.
    1. Patching is indicated when the blue boxes are selected in the V1 and A1 tracks and are viewed as "V1" and "A1"
    2. If selected, boxes indicate that audio and video are patched to specific "targeted" tracks, which are by default, V1 and A1.
    3. The boxes should appear automatically after selecting the clip in the Project panel. If not, click either box that might be unselected.

 

You should now be able to drag the clip (or use the Insert or Overwrite buttons) to edit the clip into the Timeline properly.

Note: 

  • If an A1 or V1 box is not able to be selected, try double clicking the clip in the Project panel to load the clip into the Source Monitor (see the video above).
    • After the clip is in the Source Monitor, the V1 and A1 Source Patch boxes should appear.
    • The V1 and A1 targeting boxes should also be selected.
