Proxy Issue with audio when original media is offline
I have a very very large project, all 4K footage shot on an F5 with 8 Audio Tracks.
I meticulously organised bins for the footage, I then modified the footage audio from 8 tracks to 2 track mono as there were only 2 mics.
I then tested the footage on my timeline and all is fine... 1 video instance along with 2 mono tracks... just as expected.
I then tested my proxy workflow and all was perfect...1 video instance along with 2 mono tracks...
Just as a double check I imported a proxy file back into premiere as a standalone file and it was just as the original media
with 8 audio tracks... so all prefect to start the massive proxy creation of 3 Tbs of footage.
The strange thing is after making the proxies and opening the project and making sure all proxies were attached I then felt I could take the original media offline
while I cut... no need to use it as I have a great proxy workflow right? wrong?
As soon as I disconnect the original media for some strange reason the second audio track shows up without audio.
This occurs on the timeline and in the source window.
When I reconnect the original media the second audio track re appears.
Am I doing anything wrong?
