Hi, thanks for your interest in our products. Aimersoft Video Editor can surely extract and delete the audio tracks. When you add a video file, choose it and right-click to choose "unlink" and then you are free to delete the audio you don't like.
to remove original audio click to highlight the file then right click and select "unlink" then click away from file to un-highlight it then click on audio part and it should be only part of file highlighted then hit delete, audio part of file will go away. hope i explained it well, this is for mac.

i purchased aimersoft video converter, and always been able to remove audio or mute audio.  now that feature is gone with the new updated version.  i have imovie.  i could do it that way but why would your update remove an ability i have already paid for?  i downloaded this trial version because i wanted to remove audio and that's it.  now i have a huge water mark.  do current customers have access to this software that seems to be where my formerly reliable software has seemed to moved its simplest abilities?

Hello. There are no functional differences between the trial version and full version. However, there are limitations like watermarks in the trial one. You can get rid off all the limitations once purchased.
Seriously don't even bother, to anyone that will read this. It feels like a great software, but only if you plan on purchasing it. Otherwise they add a huge watermark to any video you export T_T Thank you very much for wasting my time. Pathetic.
The software is very good. Please, explain me one thing: on the link http://support.aimersoft.com/how-tos/add-new-audio-to-the-video.html there is a good explanation about how to remove the original sound and add a new audio to the video file. I only don't understand HOW to "select both video and audio" (8 step). I did everything before that and seems that works but I can't finish the process. Help me. Thank you.
