FCP 7 (yes, really) wave metadata question

Hi guys,

Strange thing happens. I have a client who claims a 2 channel (poly) Wave file from me comes in in FCP 7 as dual mono, while a ProTools file (not sure if it's a wave or something else) comes in as stereo. (Just the pan settings.)

I forgot close to everything about FCP 7...

Anyone knows how this could happen? I never heard of metadata inside a Wave / BWF file that contains panning info...

thx,

Bouke

Hi Bouke, Alex Booy here. How sees a workstation the difference between an interleaved 2 track (boom-lav) and a stereo mix file? By his extension?  Another topic, maybe but Avid MC sees the extension _1 thru _ 24 as tracknumbers. So if you try to import an audio file never use _x for anything else than track count. I used it for shooting day. Avid didn't import any day higher than 24.

Hi Alex,

Long time no see!

I've got no clue how / why this happens. It's a single 2 track file (stereo in this case), that seems to become mono panned.

It should not be an issue as the editor 'should' have been paying attention, but it was a commercial that went out mono...

(Also strange that the broadcasters QC missed that one...)
