Shane, I should have included this in the last post. Please see attached .jpg. The far right of the FCP 7 timeline shows the higher audio level on the right.



Thank you,
Bob

Hi Shane,

I just watched your video tutorial.. and thank you.. it was helpful, though there is something I still don't understand:

I filmed with AVCHD, and (using another of your training videos), 'Logged & Transferred' into FCP 7, using AVCHD/PRORES 422; When I imported the tracked into a FCP7 sequence, I got 2 audio channels, A1 & A2. Note: the import settings under L & T only allowed two channels (said something about down mixing automatically).

The audio, when played form a timeline, seems panned to the right on A2, as if (IM GUESSING HERE) when recording in surround on my Sony PJ-790V, it counts one channel as rear vice front?

What do I need to to to have the exporter .AIFF or other in my QT file (when editing is completed) play correctly in my home surround theater?

I hope I've made some sense here.. Help when able! Thank you.
~Bob

SOrry, I have no experience with the surround audio recorded on consumer cameras.

For crying out loud! I've been trying to figure this out for ages. Right click on the tiny little line? That's crazy.

Or right click in the mixer. Open the mixer...more area.

Will you look at that. Still a buried feature though. Still crazy that one has to right click on the line... I guess I should have looked in the manual. Thanks Shane!

Fine tutorial, no doubt. However, when I have set up the eight channels I need in the audio settings and try to OK them, I get a notification saying that my 'current audio device does not support the number of outputs set in the sequence settings audio outputs tab'. Am I lacking some hardware here or what?

best regards
Jesper

Thank you for this. The track assignment in the timeline was eluding me. You think they could make it a little simpler!

SAVED MY ASS is the best way of describing this tutorial!

Nice job Shane. As a trick, you could mention that if your default sequence has only 2 tracks of audio, and you change the audio outputs BEFORE adding new tracks, then the newly added tracks will self-assign to the proper output channels.

Also, I really hate right-clicking between the auto-select button and the lock. Luckily, you can also assign output tracks in the audio mix tool.

lol, i actually laughed out loud when you right clicked near the track locks to assign the tracks to a channel. I mean, talk about a buried feature, although I guess it's in the manual. Being such an intuitive program, that would have been a head scratcher for me.

Great tutorial though
