I'm working on editing some footage from a DVR of my television station. Since our main audio feed is AC3 5.1 surround and not stereo Premiere seems to have a problem with this. It will not accept that first channel and defaults to using the 2nd stereo program identified as Stream 2 on VLAN.
The file is a .mts file and the 1st stream will be the audio I want while the 2nd stream is spanish, or useless in my case as the program I'm editing doesn't use that audio stream.
What can I do here? We upload this to youtube and even youtube is igorning the audio until it seems that 2nd stream. Really I just need to trim files so I don't need the editor but that seems to be the only logical step.
I don't think Premiere really handles mts files all that well, if I recall correctly. I'm wondering if that is one of the formats that one can simply change the mts to mp4 and Premiere handles it? I know there's a couple formats that folks just change that suffix for.
Would be a quick test ... change the suffix on a file, try to import it into PrPro.
Hoping someone more adequate to help with this specific question pops in ...
