we used iMix MXF to transcode the MXF files into Multi-Audio Tracked ProRes files for editing purposes.
Why? PP should be able to handle the native media.
It definitely can be transcoded it to upres it and because we needed to edit the raw files first and to do that with MXF files we would have to export them for every change we needed to make, which then became a huge hasstle.
I admit, I do not understand that answer.
Now when we import the clips into the timeline, only one of the channel's audio shows up. However, when we bring the same clip into FCP, both audio channels show up. There seems to be an issue with the ProRes codec not being able to be read properly in Premiere. Any thoughts on this?
Can you tell us more info about your setup? Which version of Premiere Pro, Computer, OS, etc. I have a feeling you may be working with the wrong kind of audio track.
I am in PP 5.5 but it doesn't work in 5.0 either. Working on a macbook pro OSX 10.6.8
I can't speak for Premiere on the Mac, but I did have problems with certain ProRes files on the PC with older versions of Premiere. ProRes clips with 4-channel audio (from Atomos Ninja recorder) would not open at all, I think it was CS5 and maybe CS5.5 until an update patch came out and fixed it (2-channel clips worked just fine). Make sure you have the latest updates for Premiere. Beyond that, you're using some third-party software to create the ProRes file, so that may worsen the situation.

Thanks for all the help!
We just updated 5.5 and nothing unfortunetly. Did you do anything else besides update?
