Losing center channel after encoding
Posted: Mon Apr 05, 2010 4:34 am
Hi Chris. I am taking a camera MOV, minus its mono audio (del section, del track) and combining the remaining vid with a GW 2-trk, rendered down from a multi-trk. The audio file is fine in every respect, 24-48k reduced to 16-44. The encoding is mp4 with 16bit 44.1. On playback, the vocal is all verby as though the centre channel got scrubbed. Is there some kind of mid/side processing going on during rendering? I collapsed the 2-trk to mono and encoded that and it was OK, just not as vibrant as the stereo image. When I use the stereo source file, I lose the vocal in the centre. I could ftp them to you?
