Rendering to audio only

PostWed Dec 01, 2021 1:59 am

I created a project with 9 different songs. One on each track (9 tracks). The reason I did this was so that when I rendered the project, each track would be a separate file. Unfortunately, four of the tracks has two clips on each track. When I rendered it, each CLIP was a separate file. I wanted each TRACK to be a separate file. How do you render so that each TRACK is a separate file. I ended up renaming the project and deleting everything but one song and then rendering that song. I did that with all four of the songs. There must be a way to render so that each TRACK is a separate file rather than each CLIP being a separate file. Can anyone help me?

I want to render all 9 tracks at the same time.

The reason I did this was because I had some music on an old cassette that I wanted to digitize. I recored the whole cassette (one side only) into my Zoom H5 Handy Recorder as one big file with 9 songs. I then imported it into DR and thought I could easily make a separate file for each song by putting each song on a different track - easy to do in DR and then render them all together. It would have worked if each song had one clip, but 4 of them had two clips because I messed up.

Export Audio Files accessed from the Fairlight Timeline Clip contextual menu.
[*] Select all Audio Tracks and access the function by right clicking any Timeline Clip.
[*] In the Source section enable "Consolidated file(s)" which enables the "Track Name" option under the File name drop-down menu. If "Individual Clips" is selected the drop-down will expose the "Clip name" option.
[*] Ensure to enable all the required DSP and metadata in the "Export with" section.

Alternatively, use one of the Bounce commands from the Timeline menu if any DSP is active.
[*] Bounce Mix to Track or Bounce Selected Tracks to New Layer
[*] This produces Broadcast Wave files with file naming following the user defined Buss naming in the target directory, as configured within the “Save clips to” field of the Capture and Playback section of Project Settings, with a duration that matches your Timeline In/Out Point designations.

Thanks for your response. There are a lot of things you describe that I have no idea how to do. Im a novice. I tried looking up some of the words you used on my 3000 page manual, but there is no search button. Can you explain it in layman terms - more of less.

I suppose that I could relink the 2 clips together, however, I have never been successful at relinking any clips, even right after I have made 2 clips out of one.

Just about any PDF reader has a search function.
And here is stuff for learning: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/produc ... e/training

But if you want to make it easy instead of learning Fairlight (which is worth learning), just add black video, export and then separately save the audio with a free tool like Shutter Encoder. It doesn't have a 3K pages manual ;-)

OK, that's aimed at Reynaud then.

Note: if you are running Resolve 17.1 this function will be different to 17.3 and later.

In this example, the Audio Track contained an Audio Clip with butt edits (i.e. spliced in to three sections).

If Individual Clips is enabled in the Source section the Clip Name option will be exposed. A Consolidated file(s) preference will expose Track Name.

The following configuration results in a single interleaved audio file in the target directory, taking the Track Name as the deliverable's file name.
