  • Timeline behaviour with Pro Res files

    I am running Edius 6.06 and everything is fine generally. I've recently begun using the Atomos Ninja using Pro Res LT files. These work fine in Edius but I'm wondering why when I load the clips into the timeline from the bin, the audio is automatically sent to audio track 1 while the video goes to VA track 1.
    When I load a HDV file the audio and video stay on the VA track.
    I realise that Edius 6 behaves differently to Edius 5 (which I preferred as I hate the audio being stripped automatically) but does anyone know why some files load differently to others in the same project and timeline?

    You most likely are using a 4 channel audio file.
    You can turn off channel 3/4 on the Samurai/Ninja or Drop the clips from the player window with correct mapping.

      Audio will go exactly where you have them mapped to. I think the audio handling in 6.xx is much simpler and easier than 5 was. Post a screenshot of your timeline header showing your mapping.

          Thanks guys
          Yes you are right. The Ninja can record 4 channels of audio and I found that even though I was only recording to 2 channels, the other two were not disabled in the unit itself. Problem solved ... much appreciated.
