I’ve got 3 mono audio files, placed below each other on 3 stereo tracks.
The 3 stereo tracks sum into a 5.1 Group
The 5.1 Group sums with other 5.1 Groups into a 5.1 Output and a 5.1>2.0 DownmixerGroup which feeds a 2.0 Output
When I Render these 3 audiofiles, summed together with the following Render Setup:
- In Place
- As Separate Events
- Channel Settings
- Mix Down To One Track
…a 5.1-track appears below the 3 tracks, with a summed mix of the 3 mono audio files.
Since a 5.1-file is the result of this Render, which is not useful in my project, I’d like to convert it to a stereo file. So, in order to do that, I look this 5.1-renderfile up in my Pool, select it there, and select “Convert Files” from the right-click menu. When I convert this 5.1-file, which basically only holds audio in the L and R channels, with the following Convert Options:
- Keep Sample Rate
- Keep Sample Width
- Stereo Interleaved
- Keep File Format
- New + Replace In Pool Options
…a stereo file is created with audio on the L channel only! The R channel is mute! Even when I pan my 3 original tracks to hard-right, the resulting converted file from the 5.1 Renderfile into the Stereo Interleaved file shows audio only on the L channel!
Though: when I import a random 5.1-audiofile directly from my library onto a 5.1 track and convert that audiofile in the Pool into a "stereo Interleaved"file, all appears as expected…
Is Nuendo handling Rendered 5.1-audiofiles differently from regular (directly imported) 5.1-audiofiles?
Seems like a bug to me.
