Check the audio mixer on your original material. Likely it is converted to 2.0 stereo somewhere along the way from camera to PP.
BTW, what mics are you using to record 5.1 sound and how do you set the camera for instance for enhanced rear channels?
The camera has an inbuilt 5.1 microphone.
Thanks for the help, but its impossible its being converted before it hits PP because I am copying the file directly from the raw files on the cameras hard drive into a PP timeline. That same raw file, as I said above, plays fine by itself.
And does it show up in the audio mixer with all 5.1 channels giving a signal? I'm not sure PP can import 5.1 material.
Ben, you *must* use a 5.1 Master track type on your Sequences, otherwise you get stereo audio.
1. Go to File > New > Sequence
2. Choose a matching AVCHD Preset
3. Click on the Tracks tab
4. Change Audio Master from Stereo to 5.1
5. Click OK
This should do the trick.
Averdahl, you are an absolute legend, thanks for your info mate.
I didnt even think about that. I assumed once it realised you were importing 5.1 material it would change accordingly. Never mind :-)
