How to delete a sound file from a common sound layer

On the project that I’m currently working on, I needed to delete a sound file.

Initially I simply moved it to beyond the last frame defined in the Camera Layer.

I could then export the project as a movie and the export used the last frame in the camera layer as the end of export.

I then found I could save the project as a pcl file. On examination I found that it’s a text file.

I then opened in a text editor, notepad and removed the first line in the Sound file definition.

I then loaded the project.pcl file and the sound file had truly been deleted.

I then checked that the movie output worked. When it did I resaved the project in .pclx format.

Finally I checked that it exported correctly.

This has truly been a voyage of discovery!
