Stereo audio in left channel only.

May 16, 2012 8:01 AM


I have a strange problem with one of my projects.


I have created a large number of "talking head" videos/projects. I export them to FLV using one of PREs default settings. For just one of these projects I get audio in the left channel only. All other clips are OK.


When I play the clips on the timeline the audio is perfect in both channels. So somewhere in the rendering/output process I loose the right channel.


What am I missing here?


Thanks in advance.

    That is an odd problem, as the Master Audio in PrE is 2-channel (Stereo). Regardless of the input Audio Clips, they are mixed-down to 2-channel.


    Can you give us details of your Audio on the Timeline, the files' specs., and which Audio Tracks they appear on?


    A screen-cap of the Timeline, might be useful here.


    Good luck,

    Also, are these videos recorded with an external microphone?


    If your microphone is monaural (as most are), you'll only get audio on one channel. Then you just use the Fill Left or Fill Right Audio Effect to span it across both.

    Hi ,


    Are you sure that when you import the clips they playback with the both the  channel ,


    first stretch the audio channel as shown in the image and use the effects in the audio as shown in the image.






    try using the fill left or the fill right effect in premiere elements and then try to export the video.


    Hope it Helps
