Hello,

 

I shoot on a sony fs7 which creates 8 channels of audio. When I ingest my footage into premiere everything is fine with all audio channels being seperate. However when I create proxies in premiere all audio channels are jammed into audio channel one. That's eight channels of audio on one audio channel, super frustrating. How do I fix this problem?

 

Thank you

Are you using the Built in Ingest presets or one of your own? Which did you use and did you create the proxies by right-clicking on clips and choosing 'Create Proxies'?

I have used a custom created proxy with watermark and the built in create proxies provided, the results are the same.

I found it impossible to make proxies from fs7 material and is my wont, I spent a great deal of time trying to solve the issue without any succes using the create proxy workflow from within premiere.  .  I never had more than 1 or 2 channels of audio on the files so I just used AME to transcode to my proxy format with 2 channels of audio.  I then unlinked the camera original and relinked to the "proxy" format files I'd exported.  When I was finished editing, I just relinked to the camera original.  Not as elegant as the built in proxy workflow, but worked just fine.  I imagine you could create a format with a proxy format like quicktime prores proxy or prores lt with 8 channels of audio if you need all 8 channels and use my workflow...

and always test your workflow for one or 2 files before spending alot of time doing major transcoding...

That seems like a workable sollution. It's to bad that we have to do the extra steps but editing with proxies is definately the way to go...thanks

not sure we can blame adobe for this.  there may be something proprietary that Sony's has used.   Have always wondered if there's a way to set up the camera so there are only 2 audio tracks but not sure if it would make a difference.

You need to create a custom ingest preset using Media Encoder. Check this gif I created to show you how to do that.
