You need to Source map the channels first but....
I also believe that is a bit broken and it now seems difficult to select all clips and Source map the channels in one action. ( I used to be able to do it this way but now find I have to do them individually) real PITA
The thing about target tracks is determined by your project Preset. eg a P2 Project expects 4 channels of mono audio. I customise to no mono and 4x stereo then use "Source map Audio channels" (even though its busted). BTW - I only use two tracks from P2 source (ignoring 3/4)
Combine above issues with both Track Targeting and Source Targeting (new in CS4) its a a mess.
Thanks Craig, At least it's confirmation of what I've been finding. I'll try to bump the problem up the queue and see if Adobe won't give us some sort of timeline for a fix. This is more than a minor nuisance, affecting every single clip brought in!!
Welcome to my world. P2 got shafted we got an amazing media browser but they killed our presets. No 24p preset for 1080 sucks also.
I've never had a problem with P2 and audio or anything for that matter. Maybe I'm not understanding the problem here. Are you trying to put 2 stereo tracks into the timeline or 4 mono tracks (default for P2)?
Also, Josh, there is a 24p P2 preset. It's been in there since CS3 had P2 support (I think that would be 3.1). What version of Premiere are you using?
Paul Del Vecchio
I shouldn't have said it like that. The preset doesn't do the 1080pa pulldown for you, that's all I was ******** about. I was editing and realized how annoying the interlace is in the media browser. I'm as the *** end of editing a feature so it's the P2 stuff is annoying, having to remember to 'interpret footage'
Sorry just rambling on.
I'm new to P2 and CS4 so I'm learning quick. Given you have no prob's Paul maybe you could point out where I go wrong with audio? What I do is:
1. new project - allow 4 mono tracks (or whatever) then
2. import P2 clips from Media Browser then
3. open a clip in Source Monitor
4. mark In & Out
5. click Insert or Overlay
6. Only Video appears in the Timeline (unless the clip is dragged there)
7. If Source Channel Mapping is used then Audio inserts with Video as it should. BUT:
8. Every clip must be mapped - no overall selection option seems to be available.
This is the problem. I surely am missing something.
Thanks for any help
bowen, have you selected AND targeted the audio tracks on the timeline you want the source audio?
I assume you are using a P2 preset for a new sequnce.
Thanks Curt, I am using P2 preset. I think the problem is now solved. If mono tracks are pre-selected and targeted then only dragging will insert audio. However if stereo tracks are pre-selected and targeted then all operates as it should - with no requirement to channel map. My mistakes were various at different times. However most importantly I must remember to pre-select at the new project stage, at least 2 stereo tracks. And remember of course to target them in the timeline. Thanks to all for your input. This should not have taken me so long to figure out!!
Hey guys. I will put together a video tutorial explaining track targeting and mapping just so that if anyone has any issues, we can point them to the video.
I will try to get it done this week and I'll post a link.
I'll explain it for both mono and stereo tracks, as P2 is 4 mono tracks by default and DV captured from tape is 2 stereo tracks by default.
Would you guys like me to put together a tutorial? Do you all think it could help?
Paul Del Vecchio
>DV captured from tape is 2 stereo tracks by default.
Using Premiere, isn't it one stereo track, or has Premiere gained the ability to capture the secondary channels 3&4?
Jim, you are correct, DV is
stereo track, not two. That is the reason one would revert to Scenalyzer to capture the second stereo track.
Sorry, I meant one stereo track, not 2.
