OMG. I had watched a tutorial on youtube that said to leave that box unchecked. But that was exactly the issue.

Solved.

Thank you Daniel. I was going crazy.

Hi Erik,

It is worth checking that "Trim embedded audio" is selected on the main menu.
What type of media are you using? If you are able to attach your xml file to your response we can take a look at it.

Hi there. I hope this hasn't been covered ad nauseam, but everything I've tried from all the tutorials hasn't yielded any better results.

I have a 19 second test clip I am trying to prepare for my audio engineer.

I have the full version of X2Pro.

Video Roles are turned off (see attachment).

Trim handles are 2 seconds.

"Discard disabled clips" and "discard inactive clips" are both selected.

I have "merge sub-roles into parent" selected.

I deleted all unused audio from the time line. (Only 1 of the 4 dialogue channels remains)

BUT ... When the AAF is created, it's over 2GB.

I even created a project with no video at all, with just pure audio, and it still created the same file size.

Can someone please help me figure out what I am doing wrong?

Thank you,
Erik
