Syncing using Merge Clip is taking my one externally recoreded STEREO audio track and splitting it into 2 MONO tracks. 

1. Why does it does this? 

2. Will this become a problem for my sound editor later in the post process?

 You control this in the Preferences ... how PrPro will handle audio. So go to the Preferences and set your default audio channel practices as you want them.

 

Currently, apparently yours is set for taking stereo to mono.

Go down to the Timeline tab in the Preferences dialog ... Default Audio Tracks section. I just make sure mine is set for "Use File" for all the options.

 

Note, this will only change things for sequence created after you change the preference.

 

There's always multiple places anything could be, yea it's a pain.

I just checked, they were already set up for "use file".

Huh, normally it's pretty decent about sorting what is dual mono and what is stereo. I wonder if the Merge Clip operation is the problem ... that is problematic in PrPro.

 

Which is part of the reason for most work syncing a clip with separate audio via the Multicam process actually is a lot better. Very handy. You can even batch a bin.

 

Say you've got ten clips, each with separate audio ... select all, right click/create multicam and it will give you ten multicam 'sequences' that you simply treat as a clip.
