audio changed channels!

Jan 2, 2013 8:34 AM

For some reason my Premeire Pro is putting the audio from imported video files in Audio 7 and 8 where is used to put the video audio in audio 1. I am importing from the swame Canon XA10 as I always have in the past. I also cannot move the audio to any other channel.

Any ideas wold be appreciated becausse I sure can;t find what changed!

    It is likely that the default Audio Tracks have been changed.

     

    In PrPro, the Audio Tracks channel-count must match the channel-count of the Audio Source Files, i.e. 1-channel Audio will ONLY go onto a 1-channel Audio Track, same for 2-channel, and 5.1 6-channel. What is the channel-count of your Audio Tracks 1 - 6, and what is the channel-count of your Audio Source Files?

    Good luck,

    What we need to know is what is the channel-count of the Tracks, where PrPro will not allow you to place the Audio, and what the channel-count of those Source Files are.

     

    If, for instance, your Audio Track 1 thru 6 are Mono (1-channel), and your Source Files are Stereo (2-channel), they will need to go onto a 2-channel Audio Track. You can look at the little "speaker" icons in the Audio Tracks' Header - 1 speaker = Mono (1-channel), where 2 speakers = Stereo (2-channel), and a little "5.1" = 5.1 (6-channel) Audo.

     

    If one has, say 4 2-channel Audio Tracks (2 speakers in the icon), and 1-channel Mono Source Material, they cannot place those Clips onto those 2-channel Audio Tracks. If one were to drag one to the Master Track (you cannot add Audio Clips to that Track), then PrPro will create the necessary Mono 1-channel Audio Track, numbered with the next available Audio Track Number.

     

    Good luck,

    And there's your explanation.  The first three tracks are stereo, the second three are 5.1, so your mono audio goes down below those.
