    I have an Avi movie I am editing for a friend. The audio is goo, but
    it is only on the left. What can I do to fix this?

  2. What do you mean by "fix"?
    Hard to read your mind at this distance.

    What software are you using?
    You don't really think they all work the same?

    If it really is "goo", maybe it would be better not to
    spread it around? :)

    Well, it could be that it was recorded in stereo, but only the left
    side was recorded in which case:

    1. Open the software program of your choice.
    2. Copy and paste the left side to the right and save

    It won't end up sounding like stereo, but at least both sides will

    Also, it could be that the left side of your system isn't working.
    However, if all other audio files seem to play fine on your computer
    system, then it's most likely the video itself. Things that could be
    wrong with your system include bad or disconnected speakers, loose or
    broken wires, a bad channel on your audio card (

    In any case, best of luck with the fix.

    Apparently it was captured with a mono audio card. I have run into
    this before. Sounds terrible.


    Govt is an insult to human dignity. With or without govt,
    you would have good people doing good things and evil
    people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil
    things, that takes govt. Govt is the root of all evil.

    Depends on what software you have to work on it with.

    Can you control the sound pan on your NLE? Duplicate the audio layer and
    have one one the left channel and one on the right.

    Or, just leave it alone. So the audio's in mono, big deal.
