Hello,

 

I have a video with two separate audio tracks. When I add the video to the Elements, the program does not recognize one of the tracks. What is the best way to get around this?

 

The software is 2020 Premier Elements on Win10.

 

Thanks

You can always use Audacity to save the audio from the second track as a WAV file -- then you could import the WAV file into your project and swap it for the first audio track.

In the effects section there is one to copy the left track to the right and another to do the opposite.   Depending on the nature of the recording that might work.  The real solution would be to figure out why one of the tracks disappears.  What is the source and structure of the audio?

Hi @whsprague,

 

I don't think Premiere Elements has the effect you mentioned in your post. Here is the full list of effects:

I also checked the audio codec from VLC. It is reported as MPEG AAC audio for both tracks. One of them is system sounds and the other one is the microphone.

Thanks a lot for pointing me the audio effects. This setting is most likely swapping the left and right channels for one track only.

 

My problem is the video contains two tracks (both being stereo) and only one of the tracks appears in the workspace.

 

Audacity shows two tracks for the same video in its workplace.

I misunderstood your first post. I was thinking two channels, not two stereo tracks.   Steve (as usual!) has the better answer.
