I'm editing a project, so far, I'm putting all the video on track 1. For some reason, it won't let me add another clip to track one. Premiere creates a new track, and puts the video there, even though there are 2 other empty tracks available. I tried to work around it, but putting the previous clip on the newly created track 4, but Premiere won't let me do that either. It creates yet another track.
The video clips are in the same format, shot from the same camera. I would be fine leaving the video on the new video track, except that I need to put a transition in between the clips. Why is this happening?
You are right. Although the video was shot with the same Sony AVCHD camera,(in 5.1 Dolby) the clip that won't go where I need it to be was shot with the camera in a waterproof housing, which only has stereo mics. It must deactivate the Dolby on the camera. (Looking at the clip properties, I see that the audio is different) I unlinked the video and audio, and was able to put the video on track 1, while leaving it's audio on the new track.
