Post a screen shot of your settings, and the created sequence.
I've pasted 2 screenshots into a word doc. How do I get it to you?
Sorry, I meant I asked for three 5.1 tracks
In the Custom Preset box, I saw 1 - 5.1 Audio Track and a 5.1 Master. That is what is showing in the Sequence image, that you posted. Look in upper-right of the Audio Track's Header, and you will see the little 5.1.
Check that Preset, as it says 5.1 Audio = 1.
What you asked for in Erik2 appears to be just what you got.
Well I'll be... You are right.
I put my reading glasses on and saw that the little 5.1 is, indeed, 5.1.
I've seen it as a little "St" and thought it meant "Stereo". ( I also presumed the little double horn was a symbol for "surround sound)
Well this answers a whole lot of issues:
Looks like that altho my camera records 5.1 sound, it is stored as 3 stereo tracks in the .mts.
When I pull down a clip, PPro generates 3 stereo tracks.
I'd previosly specified 3 5.1 tracks. I'd actually got them but thought they were stereo tracks.
This explains why it all seems to have been working in reverse.
Well, you learn something new every day. Thanks for showing me the way.
