Merging tracks in a clip.

Apr 29, 2013 10:21 AM

Hi,

 

In Premiere CS6 what is the easiest way to merge the left and right tracks for a single clip so that you get a mono output through both channels?

 

Thanks.

    Assuming the left and right audio are the same,

    use one or the other of these with one track:

    Fill Left effect, Fill Right effect

    I guess I'm not following you.

    Do you have the channels panned left, right like this?

    If so, center them.

    Joe's "Masters" are the routing of his two Tracks.

     

    Good luck,

    Ahh.. you have a stereo track, not two mono tracks.

    Duplicate that stereo track to another (create Audio Track 2),

    Use fill left on one, fill right on the other.

    ...merge left and right without having to duplicate it.

    But you need both the left and right channels, no?

    And you want them both centered, no?

     

    If you don't duplicate, you will only get one or the other

    when using the fill l/r effect to center the audio.

    I like option 3.

    Me too... but I'm not sure it's simpler than dupe & fill l/r.

    And, do you have to do this before you add the audio to the Timeline?

    I've never tried doing it after.  But I find it 'simpler' in that the three tracks act as one clip on the sequence.  So cuts, trims, moves, effects, etc. are easier.

    Each side of the stereo original comes out on a separate mono track in the sequence, so you can adjust each as needed.
