Hi, I have a number of m2v files from a previous life that have separate audio files (2 wav files, one for each channel). I want to convert the video and audio into 1 file with sound in ProRes 422 format, for editing in FCPX.  I can easily do the video in Compressor but can I combine the audio (with the video) in there as well?


Any help much appreciated.

    MPEG Streamclip can do this. If you don't have it already, you can find it here. I haven't done this in awhile but I recall the trick is to out both files, identically named before their extensions, into a folder and import the MPEG.


    Good luck.

    You can do this with Quicktime 7 Pro:


    Open each file in Quicktime 7 Pro:

    Click on the audio file and do a Select All (Command+A) Copy (Command+C)

    Click on the video file... Quicktime menu... Edit... Add to Movie...

    SAVE AS.

    SFToy: If you managed to multiplex M2V with WAV to create an MPEG file, please can you share how you did it here?  Thanks.
