by Eszter Molnár 5 months ago
Hey there! I tried searching for a solution but I couldn't find a good one, so I'm getting real desperate and need to ask the question. I'm not a pro in premiere pro, so maybe I just missed something

+1 on doing this in After Effects instead of Premiere. But if you must use Premiere, make your nested sequence bigger than your master sequence. For example, if your master sequence is HD, make your s

If you have activated Track Keyframes for that track in the timeline (instead of Clip Keyframes), you can't select the clip and therefore the Clip Mixer will gray out. Make sure you have Clip Keyframe

One thing that will happen when you "fill left with right" is you are no longer listening in stereo - you've duplicated the right channel and lost the left. Your video has fairly wide stereo imaging,
