I have a .mov file that has one PCM audio track and I need to add another with the same (mono) audio. Can this be done in Compressor?

    Charles,

     

    In the Inspector, enable audio settings (from pass through) and you should get a PCM stereo option. That should duplicate the mono track upon output.

    Russ,

     

    Thanks for the suggestion but it didn't work. The one PCM track has stereo audio. The Compressor just kept the same track.

     

    So I need to do a dual mono or mono track on two PCM tracks. The software I need to output to will take a stereo track as a mono track. So it will take my current two channel PCM as a left channel only. That's why I need the other PCN track.

    I tested before replying,and it seemed to do what you want, but maybe I must have missed something.

     

    What are the AV properties of your file? A screen shot of the ifo window would be great, but whatever you have…

    Russ,

     

    So you can see the one PCM track with two audio channels. I need two PCM tracks with mono audio in each.
