audio track names premiere pro

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to view or keep the names of the audio tracks, within a polyfile, in an editing sequence in Premiere pro? I am on a job where the editor is on location, and when I went to check in, I saw that in the editing sequence all the audio tracks were named a1,a2,a3.....rather than the names I put in the recorder boom 1,boom 2, lav henry.....

Try looking under Timeline Display Settings (wrench icon on Timeline) and select Show Audio Names menu option.

Most NLEs I've encountered have an option to display  'Active take information'' that displays the actual file names on the timeline. Most have the option to change the clip's or track's display name as well . Don't know much about PP though, except it isn't very audio friendly to begin with so maybe it's a PP/poly file issue.

The editor said that didn't work so it might be an issue with polyfiles.  Thanks very much though for your replies.

What do you mean by "audio friendly"?

I was under the impression that premier does not show the channel names entered into a field recorder.  I went through this a while back on a project with an editor who wanted me to label my sound report in a way that corresponded to how premier was showing them when he imported, which was to rename each track A1, A2, A3, etc. So he had a reference of A2 is boom etc.
