Hi all,

Question. I have footage shot with audio in one channel through an XLR mic. I need it to be stereo...

In Premiere I use the fill effect to fill in and make stereo. How is this done in After Effects? I've produced the spot now I have one channel with VO and the stations won't air it unless I have stereo.

Please!!! This is urgent!

Thanks,

Todd

Why not bring it into Premiere and do it like you normally would?

Actually, that's what I'm doing and importing my premiere project into AE. Each clip gets the stereo mix effect on it but it doesn't duplicate the audio. I'm still getting one channel.

Audacity can convert your audio track to stereo. Export audio only in Premiere then go (here) and follow the tutorial. Sony Sound Forge will also do this in much the same manner. Audacity is a free editor you can get from audacity dot com.

I should add that you can use the 'Export' function in the Audacity 'File' menu to save as a Windows .wav file and drop that into your Premiere timeline.

Thanks Butch,

I know there are ways around it by exporting audio, clips as movies using the fill effect on audio, etc. My problem is I'm trying to avoid this because I feel it's a waist. I edit in Premiere making a skeleton then importing my project into AE for final effects. AE won't import the fill effect. Just thought there would be a simpler way of doing this.


Thanks!

Todd

You could use AE's Stereo mixer effect [link].

If you're going to bounce out to Audacity anyway, you might try some pseudo-stereo [link], which may or may not fit your source material nicely.

You can right click on your audio tracks in APP b/4 you drop them into the sequence and change the audio from mono to stereo, etc...
