How to Delete Video or Audio Only on Adobe Premier


Adobe Premiere displays audio and video tracks intuitively in the media timeline. When you open a video in Adobe Premiere, it is automatically queued for display in the media bin, which is usually found at the top left corner of the workspace next to the preview pane. When you need to delete one or more tracks in a video, Adobe Premiere lets you do so without compromising the quality of the remaining audio or video tracks.

  • Open the video file you wish to edit in Adobe Premiere or Adobe Premiere Elements by selecting the "File -> Add Media -> From Files or Folders" command. This will open a dialog box where you can browse your computer to find the file. Click on the file to open it in the media bin.

  • Drag the video file from the media bin to the video timeline located below the preview pane. The video track will automatically be placed in the video section while the audio track is located right below in the audio section.

  • Determine which track you'd like to delete. In some videos, the speaking audio track and the music audio track are split into two different tracks, usually labeled as Audio 1, Audio 2, etc. in Adobe Premiere. The speaking track is usually Audio 1.

  • Right-click anywhere on the video or audio track and select the "Unlink Audio and Video" command. This will sever the parts into their respective tracks. If you move, delete or otherwise adjust any piece of the video or audio separately, the parts will no longer be synced, so make sure you make changes simultaneously if you need to make any at all.

  • Click on the track you want to delete, and press the "Delete" button on your keyboard. You can also right-click the track and select the "Delete Audio" or "Delete Video" command from the popup menu.

  • Save the video file by selecting "File -> Save As" or tapping the Control + S command on your keyboard.
