Vegas: Moving an audio track only?

    I learnt recently that you can ungroup the video and the audio tracks
    but I'm finding that when you move the audio track the video track is
    still stuck to the audio track and moves as well. I can reduce the
    length of the audio track without reducing the length of the video
    track but it's when I want to move the ungrouped audio track only that
    I have a problem.

    Can someone help please.

    Regards Brian

    Here's two ways of doing it.
    #1 is to click the audio portion of the total event and press 'u' (for
    The audio portion of the event can now be moved by itself.
    To regroup the two, click one of them, shift+click the other one and
    press 'g' (group).

    #2 is to click the "Ignore Event Grouping" icon on the toolbar.
    Be advised that doing this ungroups every single event so be careful.
    Remember to disable it afterward.

    Thanks Mike.
    I know it's supposted to work but then I try your two methods the
    video track is still attached to the audio track when I try to move
    the auto track on ir's own. I have to lock the video track to stop it
    from moving.

    Brian, there's something else going on that we're both not aware of as
    I've been using Vegas since version 1.0 and both of those methods have
    always worked for me.

    Thanks Mike.
    I'll do some experimenying in hope of findout what is wrong. Maybe I
    need to move from version 10a to 10c as I heard there were a lot of
    bugs found in version 10a of Vegas.

    Just to confirm Mikes comment. I'm usually the blundering Clod that
    proves Mikes comments true, so as many times as I noticed what seemed like
    the procedure not working, just that many times it turned out to be
    some other blundering of my own doing.

    Hang and rattle for a while, isolate as many things as you can, move
    slowly for a bit and you might find what is jacking the procedure up.

    Then again you might not until next time or 3. Thats happened to me a
    few times.
