I am capturing to PPro CS4 straight from my Sony HDR-FX7. I want to capture in stereo and not have use the fill right/left option as I've noticed that the quality is not as good when the fill is used. On some projects, it will capture stereo, others it will be mono. I have the stereo options checked when I set up a new project or sequence but can't figure out why at times it seems to only give me mono? Any suggestions are much welcome!
Are the captured clips showing mono or stereo tracks? My guess it that during the shoot, you used a mono mic, but captured the standard way, which is stereo. Then fill left/right is a sensible way to correct that.
I think it is the new wire I am using. Thanks for the prompt reply.
