Probably the easiest is to MAP your two mono sources to a Sub-Mix. That would then be your new 2-channel Audio. See Channel Mapping for details.
Aren't they combined in a stereo track after capture? Otherwise, if you have two mono tracks, they are combined in the output. If you want to modify the channels of the stereo track, duplicate the track, apply fill left on one and fill right on the other and then modify as you like. Start reading on the fill left/right effects. If this does not help, be more precise in your question.
AFAIK channel mapping is for preview purposes, not for final output.
Thank you. I've never actually needed to do this, as I'm mixing to my Master, which is set up for my intended output - usually DD 5.1 SS.
Yes i have the same issue.
I use the duplicate Audio track and fill left and right all the time.
when i am doing Interview videos i usually have one person on channel 1 and the other on channel 2 and it comes out as L and R in Premiere.
Today i was shooting with myself on Channel 2 and a shotgun for some ambient sound on channel 1.
In Vegas or FCP 7 there is a simple effect to drag and drop called " Combine" that nicely combines the L and R channels each into stereo.
I used to use it quite a bit and think it would be a great addition to Premiere Pro.
So i am wondering several years since this was first post if Premiere does in fact now have this option...and where it might be that i over looked it?
If not.....is there an easier way to do this than the fill left and right method?
Thanks so Much!
See channel mapping.
CS5 no longer appears to require it, but it is best to do it before you use any of the clips.
Use a sequence that has 2 mono tracks. You can set the mixer slider for each track separately, and they'll combine in your master stereo output if that is what you are using.
