Have you checked to make sure the correct tracks are patched and unlocked? Or that your not in record mode? Is it a stereo or mono track?

hi,

im patched to the correct track. im in record mode. i believe its a mono track. it will only let me cut into track 9. if i cut into track nine it wont let me manually move the track up either....

any thoughts truly appreciated.

thanks!

Sounds like you are trying to edit a stereo clip into mono tracks.

Stereo clips can appear as a single track.

To edit the way I think you wish to, you'll have to modify the clip to split it into L/R individual tracks.

Look in Media Composer Help to learn how Stereo tracks work.

Or make sure you create a stereo destination track in the timeline to edit to.
Stereo tracks show as having two small speaker icons. Mono only have one.

ah. that might be the answer because the new track i added (track 9) was probably stereo so it cut in perfectly? then the other tracks were mono. maybe ill just delete those tracks and make them stereo as thats where my music will live.

how do i convert the clip? too bad just doesnt do this when i cut it in...im sure theres a reason behind it thought

thanks

You can convert a source clip by using the modify command and then multitrack audio.
You can create timeline tracks as mono, stereo, and surround (V6) and you can split a timeline track from stereo or surround to mono. But you can't convert mono timeline tracks into stereo or surround.
The main reason why is backwards compatability with earlier versions of Media Composer. Don't forget unlike most NLEs Avid has a strong reputation and history of backwards and forwards compatability and many rely on that.

but is there a click and keystroke to mid pan a mono audio track to centre? I know we could do it in MC 5.5, Cntl or Alt click and it put is at centre. Is the only way to highlight the clip and select clip and center?
thanks
Brian
