    nothing fishy at all

    -20 means that the the clip will be normalized to a -20 ref level, I mostlt start off with -12 and not -20

    you can set the default to -12 when creating project presets, audio ref level

    also make sure the panning mode is set to Edius3 compatible, otherwise you lose half the volume when selecting mono1 or mono2

    No I don't get your results. I am seeing something scary.

    I have whole db numbers in the property settings, and yet after applying the -20 in the normalize window I will end up with tenths of dbs and not a mathematical affected value in the end.

    I suspect the -20 entry in the normalize window is a text entry by the program and not read from the properties set value.

    On my next project I will try to use just the normalize inputs and not access the properties field at all. Something fishy here.

    both are exactly the same

    when you use normalize tool, it changes the value in the properties palette

    try it and you will see

    apply -12 normalize to a clip that has not yet been modified and then check the value in properties

    now normalize the same clip to -6 and then check the audio properties again

    see what I mean?

    I am noticing that audio properties has an audio adjustment that is not the same as the normalize one.

    The normalize defaults to -20, regardless of what I did to any of the clips properties. The clip values are all values between the default of 0 and +12 db.

    How do these two values contribute to the actual audio level and can one mathematically end up clipping audio with the second adjustment that is not corrected by the other?

    I just wish the two entry points were accessing the same value. Confusing that its not.

    A total annoyance. There should be a way to suppress this prompt especially since I have the clip set to 'monaural channel 2'... Who cares what happens to audio channel 1 when not used.

    GV please have an Application Setting to default this as it really slows down workflow.
    this is possible by not using audio properties to make the changes

    instead, click the clip normalize tool on top of the timeline and change the db value, done, if no good, click it again and set the db value to something different until you are happy

    if it is only an audio clip i select the clip and press ALT>ENTER RIGHT ARROW once and ALT 1 to channel 1 or ALT 2 to channel 2

    if it is a video clip with audio i select the clip and press ALT>ENTER RIGHT ARROW twice and ALT 1 to channel 1 or ALT 2 to channel 2
    Thanks Jose - interesting set of keystrokes. I got as far as ALT>ENTER RIGHT ARROW once but then ALT +1 on my keyboard didn't work to select channel or 2.
    BUT I was using the Number pad on the keyboard. Using the numbers along the top of the keyboard, it works!
    Thanks very much for the tip - it speeds it up a lot when there are lot of clips to change.

    It's obviously been a while since this last post, but I have a problem with this very thing. In the keyboard shortcuts, it states that there is a keyboard assignment to change clips from stero to mono and vice versa (Shift+X mono and Shift+Ctrl+X stereo). THE PROBLEM IS NO MATTER WHAT I DO I CAN'T GET THEM TO WORK. Anybody know the solution to this.

    I'm using E 5.01
    Thanks

    Well, this what I do to change the audio channel of a clip after it is on the timeline. Not a one move or keystroke shortcut, however.

    1) Change audio info

    Once an audio clip is on a timeline, right click it (make sure you right click in the audio channel). You will see a big dialog box. At the bottom of this is "properties alt/enter". Select this (or you can use the alt/enter shortcut). Now you will have another dialog box with tabs at the top. Click on "audio info". Here you will have the option to see which audio channel is used on the timeline. You can change this to any channel your original source has available. Be sure to hit apply. Close the properties box.

    That's 5 mouse moves.

    or

    2) Overwrite

    Double click the "bad" audio clip on the timeline. The source window will show the original clip with an "in" and "out" already set. (Note that the source window shows 2 tracks and only the lower track has an "in" and "out" set.) Change the timeline audio track channel "router" on the track of the "bad" clip to the one you want to replace. (You have to get the cursor right on the little box at the left of the timeline audio track that "routes" the audio and click and hold. If you've done this correctly a dialog box will open with your choice of audio channels. Drag to the one you want and release the the mouse.) Place/snap the timeline cursor to the start of the clip to be replaced ( "A" or "S" is the short cut to snap the cursor left or right). Make sure the edit mode is in "overwrite". Press E (the shortcut for edit). That's 4 mouse moves and a keystroke

    I'm sure there are other ways, but either of these is faster than resetting edit points. Much faster than writing this post.

    Not that I'm aware of since it's an import-to-timeline "filtering" operation.

    However, an easy workaround is to create a preset for the PanPot&Balance audio filter, then apply the filter to the clips.

    Is there any way to create a shortcut to Monaural 1 or 2, on individual clips after they're on the timeline?
