Overlapping audio on layer and marker

Dec 01, 2023

I have a layer that has audio. This layer also has a marker with audio. When you click on the marker while the layer is playing, the marker audio overlaps. I don't want to have to create a new layer to put the marker audio on. Is there another way to fix this?  Thanks in advance.

The layer audio is triggered to play. When you click the marker with audio, the marker audio is triggered to play. That's why you hear both tracks.

You need to have a trigger to pause the media when you click the marker. And then a trigger to play the layer media when out of the marker.

In layer:

  • add trigger to play layer media when timeline starts
  • add a trigger to the marker to pause media when marker clicked
  • add a trigger to play layer media when content closes

That should work for you.
