Audio in FCP
on May 27, 2010 at 12:19:53 am

I am using FCP 7 and I shoot with AVCHD. After I log and transfer the clips into FCP they all have the "stereo pair" checked. I dont have independant control over the audio with it checked. Is there a way to get the clips to come in without the stereo pair? Also is there a way for FCP to have a mixed mono output?

thanks
Randy

Simple click the stereo pair and the link will be broken, then pan both channels to the center and it mixes the mono.

o.k. cool thanks. I got this to work on a "per clip" basis. is there a way to make a "global change"? So everytime I bring in a clip it will have the stereo pair unchecked and come out mixed?

I've never worked with AVCHD, but with other formats in L&T in the Import Settings tab next to the audio select buttons you'll see a symbol. Clicking it will designate the transferred audio as stereo or mono.

A way of dealing with this if you have a lot of clips already in a sequence is to change the audio of the first clip to the way you want it, then copy it (Cmd-C), select all the following clips and Paste Attributes (Opt-V) and in the audio choices check Levels & Pans, click OL and the change will be applied.

Nice! thanks John I think that will work. Unfortunatly when I use the log and transfer tool with my raw theres only one audio option basicly audio or not and it says audio will be imported in stereo.
