Modify source clips as stereo pairs - FCP7

I can use alt+l on 2 mono tracks in the timeline to create a stereo pair, but can I modify the source clip to be stereo pairs before I add it to the timeline?

Thanks

There is no reason to create a stereo pair from two identical mono tracks - you're much better off simply deleting one track and center panning the remaining track so it plays out of both left and right speakers.

Sorry, perhaps I wasn't clear, source clip is actually 8 stereo pairs of audio. However metadata in QT identifies as 16 x mono.

In avid I modify clip within app to be 8 x stereos. I can't remember if FCP7 had this as an option - maybe I have to do it within QT7?

Obvs cutting into timeline before linking as stereo is extra step.

Answer is no, you can't do his in thre browser.

The trick is to do them en masse in a timeline, them copy / paste back into a new bin.

Thanks Nick

As I thought. These are many and varied so no easy en masse possibilities. Maybe I'll figure out an Automator or Butler shortcut...

Maybe it'll make it into v7.1 :-)
