How Can I Create L & R Channels from mono (L or R)?
You could use the Channel levels effect and drop the side you want to eliminate.
Thank you, great help. Logical. I missed that. Again, thanks.
How could I get both channels from only one channel? I have video clips that only recorded on one channel. I would like to put the one channel on both the R & L.
Add 2 audio tracks, 1 for each channel.
You simply copy your existing audio recorded in mono, and paste 2 of them, and use the Channel effect to get the desired results.
Right click your audio & video, and select Unlink, this will seperate the audio from the video tracks.
I think you will have to use some other tool to convert a stereo data stream with sound only in one channel to a mono data stream. Hitfilm is a bit weak on audio features (e.g. this is just a right click menu item in Vegas/Movie studio). There are free audio tools out there. It might be a bit of a pain because your audio file will become separate from the video file after doing this.
If one channel is literally empty then this is just a simple stereo to mono conversion.
Even ffmpeg can do it. I've done a script or two using ffmpeg for something along those lines. In my case I was swapping the left/right channels so a stock sound effect that went left to right became right to left. A right click menu item would have been nice to have...
If you need to make specific things on the screen make sense as audio, such as seeing things on the left side of the video = left side dominant audio, then I would use the mixer to do that.
Audacity if you need more tools, it will allow you to see the video while editing, I think..
