      I’m using Final Cut Express 2 and a problem I’m running into is that, although I have stereo audio tracks on my tape (from 2 channel input), I’m only capturing 1 channel in Final Cut. When I playback my tape through the camera I hear both channels fine (they are clearly differentiated because 2 different people were mic’d), but only one track is captured in Final Cut. This is the first time I’ve used 2 mics so it was never an issue before. My cam is a Sony VX 2100. Can anyone help?

      Fixed it. After much searching the answer was to trash the preferences and rebuild them.

      Could you please elaborate a little? I have had the same problem, but it was with the music in the background. I was using a song that I was very familiar with and after I burned a DVD, I realized that I was missing the rhythm guitar! I couldn’t ever figure it out. I never noticed a problem while I was editing, but that may have just been because I was delirious and worried about getting a good grade! It’s not the kind of thing you would notice unless you were really familiar with the song, but it bugs the bejeezus out of me…

      So, you trashed prefs and then placed the audio tracks on the timeline again? Is that what you meant by "rebuild?"
