Hello, I'm editing a short film shot on the DVX100A with Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5. Part of the audio was recorded on two channels with a mixer and part on one channel with no mixer.
Is there a way I can blend the two so the difference between cuts isn't obvious?
Thanks - Raymond
Provided the two track audio isn't stereo or split track, you can ignore or turn down one channel of it.
If Premiere allows it, you can also just delete the second track.
That won't necessarily improve your chances of "blending" the audio, but it'll make the tracks easier to deal with.
There's an art and craft to movie sound that doesn't have anything to do with track count. Crossfades are your friends. In addition, you may (or may not) want the audio from the next scene to start early to pull you into the scene change.
Thanks Ty, I think I'm in stereo. When I play a DVD of a scne on my stereo TV, I hear the actors through both right and left speakers, but when there's a cut to a clip that was shot using only one channel (direct into the camera with no mixer) it will only come out of one speaker.
Is it possible to just added a copy of a single channel track below the original on the time line and make it either left or right?
