I'm converting my xdcam ex footage to xdcam HD, this is the codec my company uses and we are too broke to buy three xdcams, so we shoot with 1 xdcam and 2 ex cams. Leaving the converting up to the editor.
I'm using compressor to do so. The problem is that my audio which was originally recorded with 2 mics in 2 mono tracks onto the ex camera gets converted to stereo mono when I use compressor. Mpeg Streamclip does the same thing except even worse, I lose timecode!
My question is, what settings do I use under compressor that will keep my audio the same and just convert video? I get up to 6 hrs of footage at a time so it's something I need to set up to cook overnight.
Format: Linear PCM
Channels: Stereo (L R)
Rate: 48.000 kHz
