    Hi group!

    I'm having trouble with batch capturing clips with mono audio.
    I get "offline: audio type mismatch"..

    How do I tell Premiere Pro that the clips are supposed to be Mono, not
    Stereo as it presumes?

  2. Sune,
    There is no answer to your question.

  3. Is there some reason you need to keep the audio in mono, or is it just the
    fact that you are capturing an old VHS mono tape? You could always use a
    little cable from Radio Shack which has a single RCA input to two RCA
    outputs - then plug this into the respective stereo inputs. The capture
    program doesn't know the difference, and the audio levels come out just

    Hi Larry and thank you for your quick post!

    There is no reason for me to keep the audio mono.. I would actually be glad
    for it to be blended L+R.
    But the thing is that I've used Sony VX2000 with external mic, and therefore
    the audio is mono.

    I capture over firewire, so the capture-program really knows the difference.

  5. Hi Larry and thank you for your quick post!
    From the information I could not discern whether you were doing analog or
    1394 captures. Try using some adapter that will convert the mono to stereo
    during taping. I think one can be purchased at Radio Shack.

    So your advice is to render my allready taped media useless??
    I guess you've never done a short-film...

    It takes time to put up all the stuff needed to do the scenes again..
    Not to mention recalling the actors..

    There MUST be some way of dealing with this afterwards..
    (I BET I am doing something wrong here!!)

  7. No, I did not suggest you do away with your scenes. In addition, I HAVE done
    plenty of short films, as well as having been involved with many feature
    length nationwide theatrical releases for Warner Bros. I know you are
    somewhat frustrated and angry, but I urge you to not make assumptions about
    people without some basis for it. I could easily make assumptions of my own
    concerning someone who would use a mono microphone without running it
    through a soundboard first to create a pseudo-stereo track.

    I can only assume that you are using a generic 1394 card, and Microsoft DV
    codec. If this is the case then take the video file into another NLE
    program, replace the empty audio channel with a clone of the present one.
    Output this to a new video file and then bring it into Premiere Pro. Or, use
    a previous version of Premiere for the same operation. Nothing says that
    because you have Premiere Pro you cannot use some other program to gain the
    result you need.
