So you're trying to combine two stereo channels into one mono channel?
If so that's not really something Premiere Elements does.
It might be best to edit the audio in a dedicated audio editor, like the free download Audacity, which can create a single, combined channel from two separate channels, I believe.
But Fill Left and Fill Right in Premiere Elements will not do what you're trying to do.
Thanks for your response. I think you have misunderstood my query. I've not said I'm trying to combine two stereo channels into one mono channel - I said I'm trying to adjust the volume levels of left/right channels in a stereo file.
Elements 12 did allow me to adjust the volume of either left or right audio within a stereo audio file - to the point of mute.
I sometimes need to mute either left or right channel audio to remove unwanted noises.
The host audio plays only in the left ear. The guests audio plays only in the right ear. I used to be able to adjust the individual volume of left or right.
The exact same function that worked in elements 12 (adjust balance) is present in Elements 14, but when I use it in exactly the same way as I did in 12 it has no effect on the audio on my timeline whatsoever. I'm trying to understand why.
Can you upload a small clip to test.
Hi Ann, unfortunately not. Any audio I drop on the timeline will not allow me to adust the left/right balance in elements 14. I'm able to do it via exactly the same method in elements 12 with the same source files.
I have no idea why this is working in one version, but not the other.
This is the function I am trying to use. Selecting the audio clip and adjusting the 'balance' in the 'adjustments' pane has absolutely no effect on the audio in my timeline in elements 14. The exact same process works for the same audio files in elements 12 however. I realise I could just use Elements 12, but that kind of defats the point of paying to upgrade to Elements 14.
Thanks for your help
This seems to be a bug with Premiere elements where the extreme values of -100 and 100 are not working as expected. Can you please try with a value other than 100 (99.9 also works fine).
I hope it helps.
