Hey guys,

As I was casually editing today, I tried to put some audio into my timeline, as I had already done countless of times before in this project, but all of the sudden it created a completely new Audio track. Apparently A1 isn't able to take up Source footage and thus it makes an entirely new audio track which CAN handle s

ource footage. Unfortunately for me this is A6. I think you can understand where I am going now. How can I make A1 able to have Source footage again?


I use Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2020

(As you can see in the screenshot, there are two V1's but only one A1, meaning A1 can't assign Source footage anymore. If you look closely down the bottom, you can see that now audio track A6 has also an A1 in front of it. Somehow I also can't move up the audio from A6 to lets say A1 or A3. Just not possible.)

The answer is simple: the audio track you are dragging into this is designated as a 5.1 track, which means that you cannot drop it onto an existing stereo track (A1). Perhaps you can open up the 5.1 track in Audition and render it out as a stereo track and then import it back into premiere.

 

Hope this helps.

Instead of linking to the image as an external image (which we have to download), are you able to include it as part of the conversation?

 

Thanks.

Never used Audition, but it worked! Thank you so much! Even the A1 is back at where it used to be.
