Greetings,

I am new to PowerDirector and so far it has worked very well!

Although I'm new to PD, I am not new to non linear editing.

I'm sure that this is an easy fix, but I cannot figure this out...

I am shooting on a typical ENG style video Sony camera which records up to 2 channels of audio via the internal stereo mic or via the 2 onboard XLR inputs.

Yesterday, I recorded an interview with 2 lav mics (one into each of the camera's XLR inputs).

When I went to edit the interview, I needed to independently vary each channel but could not find an easy way to split and convert them to mono channels.

I'm sure it's super simple, but I can't figure it out.

Thanks for your support!

Other tools like AudioDirector or Audacity are available to make it easier to convert to a mono channel if desired.
