I'm a newbie to Adobe Premiere .... and just started playing around with CS5; need a bit of help with an issue I've run into. I searched the forum and didn't see the answer I was looking for .... maybe I'm not using the correct search terms?
I started recording video interviews using two lavalier microphones (one for the interviewer and one for the interviewee). When I play the clip in CS5, I can see that the recording is stereo; however most of the time .... one channel would be silent because only one person is talking at a time.
My question is .... how do I balance the channels so it doesn't sound like mono once I export the clip. I thought about the fill right & fill left .... but that would overwite the exisiting information on the track being copied over ....
Is there any better way to do this? Thanks!!!
You could duplicate the Audio track and apply Filters of your choice. eg Fill Left on one and fill right on the other
You could Mix to a Submix Stereo Track.
I am sure real sound guys can advise other ...maybe better ways.
Thanks gentlemen for your help.
Option #3 worked out well.
Since I'm using CS5, the screens looked a bit different but the concept was the same.
