Cut Entity - can base layer audio be kept for silent cut items?

Hi,

I have been testing the cut entity again and was wondering if it is possible to just play the audio of the base layer across cut items without audio?
We usually don’t publish audio with our shotgun movs so when using the Cut entity the audio is always interrupted when a cut item is playing that is linked to a vfx version.

So is there a way to just use the base layer audio for the entire cut duration when playing back?

Cheers,

Hey Frank,

There aren’t granular audio controls with the Cut functionality like you’ve described as of yet. I’ll pass this use case along to the team overseeing the feature, though!

Hi Frank,

Unfortunately we’re not currently supporting playing back the Audio when the cut item refers to a VFX version. However we’ll make sure to consider this workflow in our future design.

One question, if the the VFX version has audio, are you expecting both the ref clip and VFX version audio to be mixed and played back?

Thanks,

Michel.

Thanks for confirming Michael,

In the case of a vfx version with audio I’d expect only the version’s audio to play, not the base layer one’s.

Frank
