I just downloaded HitFilm Express, and my first simple task to do with it is to take a ProRES clip with one CD track and one MIC track as L/R... trim the clip, merge the audio to mono (or use the mic track alone as mono) and output a H.264 file.
Seems simple enough...
Currently i'm stuck on the fact that HitFilm imports as stereo with no option to separate the tracks to dual mono.
After a bit of research it appears people have been asking for this for quite a few years, and the best suggestion anyone comes up with is to use an external audio editor to accomplish what should be achieved within HitFilm in a few clicks.
Its not uncommon for people to record one track on Left and one on Right, so i'm confused as to why this isn't a stock feature?
