I have a video recorded on a GH1. I would like to extract the orchestral sound track from the video without going through speakers and re recording. In other words doing it digitally. I have had a bit of a play around with no success. Has anyone any ideas I might try. Cheers in advance

Yes I have downloaded the video file to the PC. I want to use the soundtrack from the video for another purpose so will need to create an audio file which is where my problem begins.

Hopefully someone here will be able to help you out. I wouldn't have thought it difficult to do, but presumably it'll be a case of converting something, then just `burning` it to a CD? but then again is the soundtrack actually recorded seperately from the movie? It may be part of the movie.

Xilisoft AVCHD Converter

Or you can Google for "extract audio mts" along with your OS and desired audio format.

I use CS5 myself, but I'm assuming you don't want to spend that much - Mark

Or maybe you can do what I do:

Open the movie in QuickTime Player and then go to File>Save As and in the file format select the format you prefer, but be sure that it says "Audio Only". Hope it helps :)

You've done that successfully with a (Panasonic GH1) AVCHD/MTS file?

Thanks Maertro. I do have CS5 but never considered it for audio. Can you head me in the right direction.
Cheers

Well I'm not sure if it would work, but with other file formats it has worked perfectly. Giving it a try wouldn't cost anything, would it?

Just to be clear, I meant the full CS5 suite, not just Photoshop. Assuming you also have the full suite, or at least Premiere and/or Soundbooth and/or Audition, you can either:

Open the video file in Audition which will automatically separate the video from the audio. Just ignore the video, and do what you want with the audio.

Open the video file in Soundbooth, then "Save as..." an audio file. e.g. .wav, .mp3, etc.

Open the video file in Premiere, right-click the file and select "Edit in..." either Audition or Soundbooth, then proceed as above.

Since Quicktime does not support AVCHD, attempting to open an MTS file could corrupt the file. So while this may not cost anything monetarily, it could cost the "memory" of whatever was recorded in the file and/or the time it will take to recreate the footage.

Well that's good to know, but that's why you should never work with the original file, always work with a copy :)
