  • Capturing audio

    I have two mini dv tapes that audio recorded onto the two seperate channels, using two microphones in differnt places.
    I captured the tape as normal, using dv50i, firewire to front bay, but the audio has not been captured as a left and right channel. They are both mixed.
    On the camcorder I can see that the channels are seperate.

    While I experiment with settings and do more searching through the help files and forum, if anyone has a quick answer I'd be grateful.

    Hope I've expleined it enough :)

    that is strange, double check to be sure

    right click the clip on timeline, properties, audio tab, mono1 and listen, then mono2 and listen, are both sounding the same?

      Are you using a audio mapping by any chance? If you use the "Edius 3 Compatible" setting in a sequence in Edius 4.x and you use audio mapping, both channels will be mixed together.

        I have just finished playing and what I did was set audio track one and 2 to monaural audio, so when I dragged the file to the timeline it split each channel to track 1 and 2.

        Originally it was set to stereo, I assumed it was taking it onto the timeline as one file, I could copy the file to another track and do it that way using the pan facility..

        I've learnt a bit more today, thanks very much.

        I knew I had a problem as one of the actors hit one of the mics and the sound was on both the left and right sides on my original audio, now I can get rid of it!!
