    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?

    What is the SOURCE of these clips?
    How did they get to be mono in the first place?
    You have to work REALLY HARD to find any video source that
    does NOT have stereo sound attached. You may have to provide
    more info to solve your issue.

    My question is: Why doesn't premiere just give the 'error' message, but
    still capture it? Why CAN'T it capture mono?

  4. I notice that you did NOT answer the question
    (what is the source?), you just continued your rant.

    The point is that AFIK, there IS NO "STANDARD"
    source that has MONO sound track. They are ALL
    stereo. If you are trying to capture from some oddball
    source, it isn't surprising that Premiere Pro won't
    automate it.

    My question is: Why doesn't premiere just give the 'error' message,
    I wasn't the original poster, and was not 'ranting'. I really wanted to
    know why Premiere refuses to take a mono audio track. You answered it with
    theory, which is okay, but still can't imagine that a MONO recording is so
    odd ball, that Premiere would not accept it. Again, this is not a rant. I am
    a newbie at this stuff.

  6. I apologize.
    Becuase there is no source (or capture, for that matter) hardware
    that supports MONO sound track. Why on earth would you design
    software to support something that doesn't exist in hardware?

    If you want a practical (as contrasted with "theoretical") answer,
    you must provide a description of the actual problem (source,
    VCR/camcorder, capture board, etc. etc.)
