Sometimes, I receive an OMF with stereo music tracks split into 2 mono tracks.
I prefer to handle music tracks as stereo tracks, so I have to “merge” those mono tracks into stereo. There is this function in Nuendo which lets me deal with that that easily; PROJECT/CONVERT TRACKS/MONO TO MULTI-CHANNEL.
But what if I only want a single region-pair on those two tracks to be merged-to-stereo, instead of the entire tracks?
Now, I find myself copying those region-pairs to 2 mono “work tracks”, creating a “new version” of the audio-references, by means of EDIT/FUNCTIONS/CONVERT TO REAL COPY, and then converting those “NEW VERSIONS” to stereo by means of right-clicking the 2 “NEW VERSIONS” in the Pool, and then selecting “CONVERT FILES”…
“BOUNCE” doesn’t merge two mono regions into 1 stereo region, so “BOUNCE” is worthless for me in this matter. It also doesn’t provide a tail before or after the regions’ borders either, which makes it worthless for a second reason.
“RENDER” creates a mix of the selected regions, so when I’d choose “NONE” in the RENDER-dialog, it creates a dry, stereo-interleaved- version of the selected regions, with a tail though, but…since my project is a 5.1-project, the resulting file is a 5.1-file, which -again- needs a conversion…
It find it quite a hassle to do some things in Nuendo which are much easier in other programs…I must be overlooking something in this matter? Any tips welcome!
