Working with Multiple Tracks

By default, Premiere provides three tracks of video and six tracks of audio in the Timeline.

If you need additional video or audio tracks, in the menu at the top click on Sequence...Add Tracks.

Adding new tracks

If you have multiple tracks of video, whatever video is on the top track in the Timeline will be shown when the sequence is played, and any other video clips underneath will not be seen.

If you have multiple audio tracks then all the audio will play simultaneously no matter which is above or below the others on the Timeline.

If you want to hide the video from playing on the top track (or any track) you can:

toggle track output

  • Turn off the video for a particular track in the Timeline by clicking on the eye icon button to the far left of the track to hide it.

If you want to stop the audio from playing on a particular audio track you can:

  • Turn off the audio for a particular track in the Timeline by clicking on the speaker icon button to the far left of the track to mute it.
