After Effects discrete audio channels?
on Mar 21, 2011 at 2:41:40 am

I'm running into a very frustrating problem. I feel like an idiot asking this question, because After Effects HAS to have some built in function to achieve this. It's so simple.

I have production footage of a man speaking in front of a greenscreen that I'm running through keylight. All the clips have two discrete audio channels for a boom and lavalier mic that I am trying to keep separate. Unfortunately, After Effects seems to want to flatten the audio channels on export, no matter what I do. Is there any way to let the audio channels pass through unchanged? My client wants access to the untouched audio and this is getting in the way of me making a deadline.

Any help is appreciated greatly. :)

AE uses audo for reference only, it was never meant for any audio work. Your client should get his audio from the original file and not from your export!
