Audio Channels in Timeline Keep Changing?

Feb 4, 2013 12:52 PM

I have some audio tracks, on those tracks I inserted a .wav file that has 4 channels.  I only need 2 channels. ( 1 and 2 )  I unlinked the audio and I am just using channels 1 and 2.

 

Channel 2 on the timeline keeps defaulting to Channel 1 - I change it and then next time I open the p[roject the audio on channel 2 goes back to channel 1.

 

I hope this makes sense.

 

This picture is what it needs to be

This picture below is what it changes to and I have to reset the channel.

Im doing something wrong right?

 

I hope not because I have already layed in and adjusted all my audio.

 

Thanks for your help!

    Hi,

     

    given:

     

    --> source is 4 channel WAV

     

    --> Audio mapping:

     

    1. source channel 2 -->  mono track channel 1

     

    Have you made a copy of the WAV in the bin to set the second audio mapping assignment?

     

    2. source channel 1 --> mono track channel 1

     

    So it would make sense that the audio is pointing to source channel 1 because that was the last assignment you made?

     

    I use the channel assigment a lot for 5.1 tracks it is working fine for me.

     

    --> Can you describe a bit more what doesn't works like expected?

    Ahh - now I understand ;-)

     

    so much channel tracks switches...

     

    Premiere forgets what source channel to use and switches back from source channel 2 to source channel 1 after the project is reopened.

     

    I'll do some test's here and see if I get the same problem...

    This Adobe KB Article (and included tutorial) might be helpful for Track Mapping in PrPro CS 6: http://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/overview-audio-audio-mixer.h tml

     

    Good luck,

    I also have this problem. The workaround seems to be to use the Audio Effect "Fill Left" rather than the Channel Assignment method - which just reverts when the project is saved and reloaded. I still don't know why this happens - I think it's a bug.
