Dual Mono to Stereo?
Dual Mono to Stereo?
by Jim Andrews on Aug 2, 2016 at 8:30:38 pm

We received a video from a different post house, that we now need to send to a theater. The theater is saying that the audio is dual mono and not stereo, and I was wondering if there was a way to fix that. The track itself is one stereo track ( i think) but both the L and R channels are the exact same. Is there anything that can be done to make this Stereo? Attached is a screen shot of the track.

There is no difference in dual mono and stereo made from dual mono.

Hi folks,
I've been struggling with this within an editing context, not a delivery context.
I have dual mono tracks recorded from an on-camera stereo mike originally imported into FCP.
I want to equalize them and change levels simultaneously, rather than by applying effects and key frames to one and copying it to the other.
I understand I should be able to change these in the project panel, but they are in a heavily edited sequence so I don't want to go back and recut the entire show.
How can this be done?
