mute only audio (on video)

Hi,

I want to be able to mute/unmute video's audio, with one click on/off.

Silencing audio, or separating video and audio, than turning off/on audio's track does not fit in my workflow. I simply want to be able to mute/unmute audio of video with one click. 

p.s. similar issue is mention in other requests, but I wanted to highlight that I am talking about video's audio, not just audio file. 

Best,
Razmik

Why not just record your audio/video and then use the audio control in Camtasia to silence during certain times?  I do this and I have found it best to use some music from the library as background - set to about 5%, so people don't think the audio has cut out for some reason.

Silencing tool is working one way, to bring back audio one has to manually bring the level up. It does not work for me because I would have to do it many time, it's time consuming

On my keyboard hitting "F2" will mute System Audio. This silences the  audio playing in Camtasia.

Some keyboards use a different key. Look for a key with a speaker on it and an x next to it in most cases.

Thanks, but I have audio on another track which I want to hear.

Well, you could select all the media at the same time. Then separate the audio from all of the videos at the same time. That could save you a number of steps.

Aside from that maybe this Idea will gain some traction.

Most editing programs separate the audio from the video automatically.
 Other then that the workflow is essentially the same for muting  audio tracks separately.

Won't go in details, but for my workflow I need audio to stay with video.
Thanks for suggestions Joe
