I record a video with sound and also have a separate external audio record. Once I import the audio onto a track i have the video and audio on separate tracks, but still grouped. I then import the external audio record and put it on the third track, i.e. below the video/audio tracks. I then select the video/audio and the audio track and choose "Align other audio objects with this track". I always get an error along the lines of "You wanted to have pieces of audio material automatically aligned to each other. This requires two audio tracks with audio objects. First select the objects on the reference track, and then the objects to be adjusted on the other track. Finally, activate the alignment function again." I simply doesn't matter what I do, i.e. which track I choose first. Even un-grouping the audio from the video file and only choosing the two audio tracks it gives me this error. I have used this before and it worked fine. I'm wondering if this is a bug in this version or am I doing something wrong?
NOTE: Problem is resolved. The issue is the fact that if you have any other object on the track, which is NOT an audio object, the Magix program refuses to recognize the audio file as an audio file. In my case I thought I had only audio objects on the track, but I found I had small text object at the end I was going to use for end credits. It had moved up a track accidentally in the editing process. I tested this by first moving the audio object I was trying to align to an empty track. When I clicked on the video file and the audio object, the alignment worked fine. I then found the text object and moved it down. Once I moved the audio track back up it also aligned fine. I wish Magix gave you a better error message or at least a pointer as to the fact that you have other type of objects on the track.
