Sometimes you would like to extract the soundtrack out of a finished video film to be able to edit it in a wave-editor.
There are a lot of ways you can do this, but the easiest method is within Studio itself.

It goes like this:

When your film is finished (clips, sound effects, music, etc.). Creation of video editing

Steps to be followed with :

With Studio 9
  1. Click on ‘Make Movie’;
  2. Select "AVI";
  3. Then click "Settings".
AVI Settings in Studio 9

In the panel settings:

Take away the tick mark at ‘Include Video’ and click on the green button ‘Create avi-file’ on the screenshot above.

In the dialog–screen that follows, change the extension in the file-name from .avi to .wav. Storage Settings in Studio 9
With Studio 10 and 11
  1. Click on ‘Make Movie’;
  2. From the drop "File type", select "AVI";
  3. from the drop "Preset" select" "Custom" and then click "Settings"

AVI Settings in Studio 10 and 11

In the panel settings :

Take away the tic at ‘Include Video’ and click on the green button ‘Create file’ in the screenshot above.

In the dialog–screen that follows, agree to the extension proposed by Studio.

With Studio 12, 14 and 15
  1. The improvement made in Studio 12, 14 and 15 is that you can directly select "Audio" in the dropdown "Preset" when creating the film.
  2. You only have to choose between one of the 4 presets or select the item "Custom" if you are even more demanding.
Studio 12 and 14 offer the possibility to directly create an audio file

When you have edited this wave-file in the wave-editor, you can place it back on the time-line via Studio-Album. Lock the video-track, remove the synchroneous audio-track and replace it with the edited wave-file.

Don't forget that in S15 (and I think S14) if you use markers on the timeline you can select to make an audio file between markers or from the start to a marker or from a marker to the end of the timeline, great for working on voiceover tracks !
