Which version of Movie Studio are you using?

Not exactly sure what you mean but putting them into a Parent/Child arrangement might be your answer?

I wonder if the OP is looking for something like Track Grouping where a number of tracks can be grouped and that grouping can be collapsed down to one master track with the individual tracks hidden beneath - and it can be expanded to show all the tracks if need be. Track Grouping is definitely in Vegas Pro - I don't know if its in VMS.

This is exactly what I mean.

If Track Grouping is in MSP17, then the way it should work (based on how it works in Vegas Pro) is to highlight 2 or more tracks in the tracker header area, R click and then towards the bottom of the context window that opens, there would be a menu option of Track Group which, when highlighted with the mouse, opens a sub-menu with the selection of Group Selected Tracks. When grouped, a master track is created immediately above the grouped track and it has an arrow to the far left (a twistee) which when clicked can either collapse/hide or fully display the grouping.

@Dexcon No VMS doesn't have such grouping, or if it has I cannot find it. Making tracks the Child of a Parent is what I've always considered the equivalent of grouping which I had years ago in another, many years discontinued, consumer editor.

Unfortunately Parent/Child is only available for video tracks. There's no way I can find to "group" audio tracks.
